Kill Devil Hills is a colorfully-named town on the coast of North Carolina. It is part of the Outer Banks, and is best known for its association with the Wright Brothers' historic flights in the first airplane in 1903. The flights are usually associated with Kitty Hawk, but actually took place here. A national monument and museum marks the site.
As with much of the Outer Banks, two roads run north-south through Kill Devil Hills: Virginia Dare Trail (known as "Beach Road") and S. Croatan Hwy (Rt. 158)
There is a large monument to the Wright Brothers on a giant sand dune near the beach. It is, to say the least, difficult to miss.
You are at the beach. Have fun!
Duck Donuts. They are freshly made donuts made right before your eyes and you can get to choose your toppings. They are boxed by the dozen and handed to you warm.
