Steeped in history, and offering a blend of beach community, low dunes and stretches of trees and vegetation, Kitty Hawk, NC has become a popular vacation destination on the Outer Banks, with its clean, un-crowded, family friendly beaches, and easy access to restaurants and numerous shops and stores.
Located on the Northern end of the central beaches of the Outer Banks, Kitty Hawk was chosen by the famous Wright Brothers for its steady breezes and soft dunes to make their 1903 historic first flight in a wooden frame, two-propeller plane. That famous flight, marking the birth of aviation, is now commemorated in a popular tourist attraction - the Wright Brothers Memorial located in the neighboring Kill Devil Hills. And, in the heart of Kitty Hawk, NC you’ll find an 1877 acre North Carolina wildlife park, the Kitty Hawk Woods, home to white tail deer, gray fox, muskrat, river otters, reptiles, native birds, and rare plants.
Most of all, you can enjoy a week of easy living in any one of a number of well appointed homes located along miles of beach community, enjoying colorful sunrises and sunsets from your deck and watching dolphins frolicking in the gentle, glistening surf.
