Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge

by grandmaR

If you are going to drive down to Bodie Island, it isn't much farther to go across the Bonner bridge to the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge

* Pea Island Visitor Center is open 9-4 daily. It offers two wildlife trails that are open year round during daylight hours and are fully disabled-accessible. One of the North Pond Wildlife Trail is a half-mile trail which offers spectacular wildlife observation any season. The best birding is during the fall and winter. The trail is located near the Visitor Center which is approximately 3.5 miles south of Oregon Inlet. Most visitors walk this trail to the end - a double-level tower - and then retrace their steps to the Visitor Center and their vehicles

There is also a photography blind located very near NC Highway 12.

Unless an area is signed as "Closed to Public Entry", you may wander throughout the beach, salt flats and dune areas of the refuge.

Pea Island offers access to both the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound for saltwater fishing

You will really need to click on the picture to enlarge it to appreciate the view from the top of Kill Devil Hill. You can see the township of Kill Devil Hills in the distance and also the open beach in the distance.

Family Vacation, or quiet Get Away!

by tpangelinan

"Kill Devil Hills, it gets under your skin."

This place is ALL ABOUT THE BEACH, OK? Celebrations of Flight, the brothers Wright got busy here, and Shopping, Eating, Fishing, Boating...
If you love the beach, kites, tanning, hanggliding, eating seafood, family togetherness....this is your kinda town!!

"There is no such thing as a bad day!"

Well, unless there is a hurricane, even a rainy day spent playing games, shopping, museums, or at the North Carolina Aqurium will be a great time for you and yours!
This is a very typical view from most ocean front beach houses in Kill Devil Hills. Get the Ocean Front accomadations, there is no kinda public parking, beach access. The easiest way to enjoy a trip here, is to stay right on the beach. Most people split a beautiful house, which really brings the cost down. You can find houses with 4 Master bedrooms, all ocean view, and split a $2,500.00 house 4 ways, which is really the way to go! These houses are made for big groups, and sharing is caring (or something like that).
