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.
The Holiday Inn Express Nags Head, (formerly the Nags Head Inn), is a dream of a destination for ocean lovers, thanks to a stellar location where the Outer Banks beaches serve as a personal backyard. Boasting 4 acres of oceanfront terrain, and a host of modern amenities and recent upgrades, this multiple-story hotel offers plenty of ways to have fun that are above and beyond those miles of ocean views.
The Holiday Inn Express Nags Head has a fantastic location for explorers, and is close to a wealth of area sites including Jennette’s Pier, the Jockey’s Ridge State Park, and the famed Wright Brothers Memorial, as well as a locally acclaimed collection of restaurants and shops along the Beach Road. The hotel itself also offers lots of ways to have fun, and features an indoor pool, a hot tub, a fitness center, and a nice sundeck which overlooks the surrounding lawns and coastal gardens. The rooms are decorated with local art, and feature lots of accoutrements, like flat screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffee makers, and many of the rooms also offer private balconies with beautiful ocean vistas. Inside and out, the ocean is clearly the star of the show at this fully accommodating and enticing Outer Banks destination.
