Kitty Hawk at Kill Devils Hills is a national treasure in North Carolina.
Walk along the path of the first flight by the Wrights Brothers at Kitty Hawk. The historic site commemorates the first flight with notations about the historic event. The track is mapped out and you can climb the hill to the launch spot. A visitor’s center will greet you to the National Historic site and a lifesize bronze sculpture will give you a glimpse of the size of their plane.
Kill Devil Hills also offers visitors plenty to do from local shows to beaches and is a great place to stay if you want to check out the northern Outer Banks that include Duck and Currituck.
Currituck is home to the northernmost lighthouse in the Carolinas and actually sits near the North Carolina and Virginia border. Pass through the Currituck Nature Preserve and you can cross into Virginia, but you can’t get too far.
Currituck is home to wild horses that roam the OBX beaches. The horses date their ancestry back to the Spanish trade when a ship sank off the coast. The horse made it to shore and have acclimated to the beaches and surrounding area’s. In fact, there are islands off the coast of the OBX where wild horses call home from similar wrecks long ago.
