Nice, clean, large truck stop. Bathrooms are also very clean.

Kenly 95 Truck Stop Lighthouse

Right off 95...easy and worth it if you were going to stop for gas or a quick bite. Lighthouse just a facade...can't "go in," and smaller than we all expected. Truck inside the rest stop is a fun touch, but you can't climb in it or on rocks around it, so my kids were disappointed.

Truck Stop Lighthouse.

Kenly 95 Truck Stop Lighthouse

We sure seem to like our lighthouses here in NC, so much so that we sometimes build fake ones inland. There's a relatively new replica lighthouse at the Kenly 95 Truck Stop, and this one's fairly impressive at 65 feet tall. Why a lighthouse at a truck stop? Well, their website says, "Just as the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse has become a symbol of North Carolina, Kenly 95 strives to be a symbol of hospitality for truckers and travelers alike."
