Travel Tips for Kill Devil Hills

The Avalon Fishing Pier

by tpangelinan

Mike recalls as a small child traveling with his parents. He and his brother couldn't wait to come to the Avalon Peir at night to play arcade games. His father fished there all day. That was over 20 years ago, and the pier still stands...go see it.

What a beautiful structure

by spartan

The northernmost accessible town on the Outer Banks, Corolla has seen rapid development over the past ten years. Up until 1984, when the state extended Highway 12 north from the Dare County line, the town was a sleepy seaside village.

Today, multimillion dollar vacation homes dwarf the village proper and make Corolla one of the most desirable upscale vacation destinations in the country. Ironically, it was the opening of the road and the ensuing traffic that eventually led to the relocation of one of Corolla's most famous attractions, the wild ponies.

Kitty Hawk

by spartan

Once a remote area, Kitty Hawk has grown into a summer resort area and provides some of the best beach recreation on the North Carolina Coast. When Orville Wright stepped ashore in Kitty Hawk Village in the fall of 1900, he probably already knew that he and his brother were destined to make history as discoverers of flight.

After all, they had chosen this remote fishing village on the Outer Banks partly for privacy from prying eyes. Three years later, they would indeed break the bonds of earth for the first time in their heavier than air flying machine.

Guy in hat flies with the Wright Brothers

I can only take so much history and seriousness. It was time for a few laughs and some fun. So here I am just behind the Wright Brothers plane and I am ready for take off. I hope that photographer gets a good shot of this.

This national park is a very open and hands on type of area. You can walk up the hill to the monument. You can walk around and play with the model as I am doing here. And there is a very good museum on flight with videos and models to explore. It is well worth an afternoons visit.

Kill Devil Hill - First In Flight

by littlesam1

"Hang on to your hats guys - Low Flying Aircraft"

Kill Devil Hills is the Outer Banks oldest township. It was established in 1952. History tells us that the Wright Brothers made their famous flight from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. But the actual location is what is now known as Kill Devil Hills. The town was named after the sand dune Kill Devil Hill. Before modern tourism took over the Outer Banks, it was characterized as a series of sand mountains. Some of these were over 100 feet high. Kill Devil Hill was one of the largest of the dunes. No one knows for sure how the place came to be named Kill Devil Hill. Popular rumor has it that is was named for a brand of rum (Kill Devil Rum) that was found washed ashore in colonial North Carolina. I personally like this story and accept it. Stories of rum and pirates just seem to go together with the history of the Outer Banks..
