Kill Devil Hills Area Guide

The Birthplace of Flight

Did you know that the soft sandy surfaces and the breezes are just some of the reasons that the Wright Brothers chose the Outer Banks to test their motor-operated airplane back in 1903?  Kill Devil Hills & Kitty Hawk remain popular today for those reasons and many, many more. There is deep history here and locals enjoy sharing the folklore as much as they enjoy sharing with you the modern place it is today.

Stay in a beachfront home or condo here in the Central Outer Banks area for a wonderful trip. As with all of OBX the sunrises and sunsets are fabulous. Imagine sitting on the deck engulfed in the sights and sounds of the water with family or close friends.

Things to Do in Kill Devil Hills

Being in the Central Outer Banks area it is so easy to explore OBX to the North and South from here.  But let’s talk about Kill Devil Hills, the town with so much happening that there is something for everyone.


Get caught up in the excitement of flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. For history buffs, pilots, and young students who dream of a career in aeronautics, this is a must-see stop! It is located at Mile Post 7.5 on U.S. Highway 158, Kill Devil Hills, NC. Follow that up with a family kite flying competition at the beach or a helicopter tour of the coast! 


Go fishing at the Avalon Pier, hike or bike through the Nags Head Woods, and explore the towering dunes at Jockey Ridge State Park. Baseball fans can head to the ballpark to watch the Outer Banks Daredevils in action.


KDH has a lot of extra activities for the kids such as mini-golf, go-carts, the First Flight Adventure Park which will challenge you to new heights and for non-beach days, you can go bowling or to the movies.


For the adults, KDH has a comedy club, mystery dinner theater, salons, spas, and the Outer Banks Olive Oil Co.
