Kitty Hawk Things to Do

  • The Wright Memorial

    The Wright Memorial is the site of the first airplane flight in history on 17 December 1903. The memorial is run by the National Park Service. Rangers give a talk on the 1903 flight and explain the basics of flight: roll, pitch and yaw. Ironically, the original Wright Brothers airplane was taken by the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. In my...

  • Beaches

    Up and down the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the beaches are a must. They are a must because the Gulf Stream keeps them warm throughout the summer and early autumn. Fishing is also good through here. Throughout North Carolina, the beaches are public property. That is, property owners, no matter how rich are prohibited by law from walling off the...

  • Beer?

    I was very underwhelmed by this brewpub. I had battered flounder that was at most tasteless the five slices of potato that was served with my fish did have some seasonings though. The beer was just about the same, in the end wanting a beer.

  • La Fogata

    The restaurant is called La Fogata (Spanish for "the bonfire" which are "prohibido" in Kitty Hawk). Our waiter was great. He could carry a large number of platters without a tray. Instead, he terraced them on his arm that was shielded from the heat with thick cloth. For dessert, Fernando and I shared what is called fried ice cream. I don't quite...

    The Wright Memorial Bridge crosses the Pamlico Sound from Harbinger to Kitty Hawk. There is a hump in the middle to allow for taller ships. Obviously, it was named for Kitty Hawk's most famous residents, Orville and Wilbur Wright who invented the first airplane (despite similar claims by Santos Dumont down in Brazil). As we were coming from the north, the sharp left turn onto the bridge meant we were almost there (either to the Sykes cottage in Kill Devil Hills or the flat in Duck).

  • It can save the day

    Imagine coming to the beach totally unprepared...no towel, no bathingsuit, no sun block, etc. Wings will save the day. It did for Fernando his first night here. See, he packed everything he needed for the beach. The only trouble was, Delta Airlines lost his luggage. It was in transit, but still not in his hands that first night. On the way back to...

Kitty Hawk Warnings and Dangers

  • Beware the cactus

    As I looked out over the field, I wondered where the cactus where hiding. Expecting huge prickly pear cactus pads, I was suprised when I actually spotted this ferocios plant!

  • Hurricanes and Noreasters

    If you look at a map, the whole of North Carolina's Outer Banks poke out prominently in the Atlantic Ocean. That makes them a prime target for hurricanes. In the northern Atlantic Ocean, hurricane season runs from 1 June through to 30 November. When you visit the Outer Banks, you will see prominently displayed Hurricane Evacuation Route signs...

Kitty Hawk Sports & Outdoors

    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

    Equipment: Golf clubs are available for rent

    Favorite thing: I am encouraged to learn the National Park system has started using renewable fuels.

    Fondest memory: 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!
