The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
Once a small card shop at the Outer Banks Mall, in 2012 Hallmark moved two stores to the south and more than tripled in size. Now 3,400-square feet, the store offers a lot more than greeting cards. Of course, there’s a large selection of cards, Hallmark’s calling card, so to speak. In fact, the selection of the high quality cards this company is known for is better than ever. But there are also gift books and kids’ story books, toys, puzzles --- including one that features our own Jockey’s Ridge --- wrapping paper and bows, picture frames, decorative plaques, candles and stationary. Outer Banks memorabilia and calendars can also be found here. If you’re looking for baby or wedding gifts, you’ll find lots to choose from at this store. Personalized imprinting and invitations are also available to order.
