Kitty Hawk, NC

As you cross the Wright Brothers Memorial Bridge, you are welcomed to the Outer Banks by the scenic town of Kitty Hawk. This small community is known for being the site of Orville and Wilbur Wrights’ famous first flight in 1903 and has since transformed into an inviting Outer Banks vacation destination. Kitty Hawk has a conveniently central location between Southern Shores and Kill Devil Hills, which makes exploring the northern and southern beaches easy.

Thanks to its low dune line, Kitty Hawk offers some of the best ocean views on the OBX. In fact, many of our oceanside, as well as our oceanfront, Outer Banks vacation rentals in Kitty Hawk feature breathtaking views of the ocean over the dunes.

 

Kitty Hawk Attractions

Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve

Between Highway 158 and the Currituck Sound sits Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve with over 1,800 acres of maritime forest. Lesser-known than other Outer Banks parks like Jockey’s Ridge, Kitty Hawk Reserve is a secluded area offering quiet solitude from the bustling summer beaches. The reserve is open year round and the off seasons (fall, winter, and early spring) are ideal for exploring the reserve in cooler temperatures and without the added task of fending off mosquitos. Thanks to the reserve’s unique combination of forest, swamp, and sound habitats, there are boundless opportunities for outdoor activities. Kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and wildlife watching are all welcome in the park, as are dogs.

Ocean Views

Kitty Hawk is unique from the other Outer Banks’ towns in that it offers some of the best ocean views thanks to its low dune line. Most oceanside, as well as oceanfront, Outer Banks vacation rentals in Kitty Hawk offer views of the water. The multitude of public beach accesses, several with accompanying parking lots, are another fantastic feature of Kitty Hawk’s beaches.

Golfing

The Outer Banks’ is home to several golf courses, one of which is located in Kitty Hawk. Sea Scape Golf Links is located just a block back from the oceanfront and features dramatic changes in elevation. Sea Scape is open year round and is a fun way to enjoy the Outer Banks’ scenery from the green.

Dining

Kitty Hawk has a variety of dining options with something for everyone’s palettes. Try the tacos at Bad Bean Baja Grill or the namesake soup at Rundown Cafe on Beach Road. Trio is a popular wine, beer, and cheese bar with live music throughout the year. Since Kitty Hawk is wedged between Southern Shores and Kill Devil Hills, it’s just a quick ride from even more dining options for you and your family.
