Kill Devil Hills is a town on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (between Kitty Hawk and Nags Head) known as the site of the first powered flight. You've likely heard of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the adventurous brothers who are credited with piloting the first powered flight. On Dec. 17, 1903, the pair made history when they launched their plane from a large sand dune located in Kill Devil Hills, a spot that is now the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

Public beach access, the Avalon Fishing Pier and options to rent kayaks or surfboards make Kill Devil Hills great for daytime adventures. The area also has some of the best nightlife on the OBX. Kill Devil Hills has also been voted one of the Best Surf Towns in America by Surfer magazine. The unique position and location of our barrier islands allow swells to make it all the way to shore instead of breaking further out in the ocean. Favorable winds and offshore storm activity also contribute to the supreme conditions.
