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.
A full service flower shop located near the art district known as Gallery Row, Nags Head Florist serves the northern Outer Banks and mainland Dare County.

There is also a complete line of wedding flowers for the entire wedding party, the ceremony and the reception.
