What's in Kitty Hawk?

by BillGlo

Since the Wright Brothers actually flew from Kill Devil Hills, and the plaque is there, what exactly is there to do/see in Kitty Hawk?

Re: Re: What's in Kitty Hawk?

Good infromation, thank you.

The reason I asked about Kitty Hawk is that I see on the map, I will have to turn off the main road to get there.
I was wondering what will there be to do/see at my arrival in Kitty Hawk -or should I just continue to drive straight?

Travel Tips for Kitty Hawk

Using the Sun

by lonestar_philomath

I am encouraged to learn the National Park system has started using renewable fuels. I saw alot of solar power being used in the Outer Banks. Thank God people are waking up to the impending OIL crisis and couragous enough to fight the system!

Golf on the Dunes

by grandmaR

I don't play golf, but it would seem that this would be a good location for a course - lots of natural sand for sand traps, and any hurricane damage could be just incorporated in the course.

I think this is a picture of the Sea Scape Golf Links in Kitty Hawk, but there is also Nags Head Golf Links (252) 441-8073 to the south and The Currituck Club (252) 453-9400 to the north, plus three clubs on Roanoke Island 1. The Carolina Club (252) 453-3588 2.. The Pointe Golf Club (252) 491-8388 and 3. Kilmarlic Golf Club (252)491-4220 Golf clubs are available for rent

Where man learnt to fly

by lonestar_philomath

"Museum and Flight Room"

Wright Brothers Visitor Center
A small building from the outside but large inside. There are daily talks about the history and importance of this site where the Wright Brothers started man's aviation industry.

"First Flight Pavilion"

Models and displays of the Wright Brothers accomplishments.

"The shelter where they slept during flight testing"

Road trippin in the Trooper.

by Travmad

"Kitty Hawk"

Julia and I try to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina two times a year. We often take the Trooper as the back seat fold into a bed, very handy if it's pouring buckets and you don't feel like pitching the tent.

Pegasus but not the Wright Brothers

by grandmaR

The painted sculptures that seem to be taking over the country are flying horses for the Outer Banks. This is an amalgamation of the wild horses that live here and the first powered flight which took place near by.

The first flight was in Kill Devil Hills which is near to Kitty Hawk and not IN Kitty Hawk, but the telegraph message about the flight was sent from Kitty Hawk. That's how everyone got confused about it. And this horse is also actually in Kill Devil Hills.

According to the town webpage, ".the origin of the name Kitty Hawk is still a matter of local debate. Most people agree that it is a Native American name for this area. The word originally appeared on English settlers' maps as "Chickehawk" or "Chickahawk" in the early 1700's. By the late 1700's, local residents spelled the name as we do today, with old land deeds referring to settlements as "Kittyhuk," "Kittyhark," KittyHawk," and "Kitty Hawk.""
