About Kitty Hawk

 Known for Beauty and History  

 Kitty Hawk is a town located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is known for its beautiful beaches and rich history, particularly as the site of the Wright Brothers' first powered flight 

 Flight History 

 The Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur, made history on December 17, 1903, when they successfully flew their powered aircraft for the first time at Kill Devil Hills in Kitty Hawk. The Wright Brothers National Memorial commemorates this significant event and features a visitor center, a reconstructed hangar, and a granite monument marking the takeoff point. 

 Apart from its historical significance and natural beauty, Kitty Hawk has various attractions for visitors to enjoy. You can visit the Outer Banks Children at Play Museum, which offers interactive exhibits for kids, or explore the Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve, a protected area that showcases the diverse coastal ecosystems. There are also golf courses, mini-golf courses, shops, and restaurants in the area for entertainment and dining options. 

 Outer Banks Beaches 

  Kitty Hawk offers several stunning beaches along its coastline. The beaches here are known for their wide stretches of soft sand and picturesque dunes. The ocean waters are generally warm during the summer months, making it an ideal destination for swimming, sunbathing, and water sports. 

 Kitty Hawk is part of the Outer Banks, a chain of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. This area is renowned for its natural beauty and is a popular tourist destination. The Outer Banks offer a variety of activities, including fishing, boating, kayaking, and surfing. Visitors can also explore the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, which stretches over 70 miles and features lighthouses, nature trails, and beaches. 


 Despite Kitty Hawk’s flight history, the nearest airport is still an hour and a half away at Norfolk International Airport. The closest hospital, however, is much closer at Outer Banks Hospital, which is 20 minutes away.
