Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina: Coastal Town Famous for Legendary Shipwrecks and Wright Brothers Memorial
Kill Devil Hills is located near the northern end of the Outer Banks, a resort region comprising a long string of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. Popular legend says the city got its name during the colonial era, when locals scavenged shipwrecks for rum so potent it could “kill the devil,” and then buried the bottles in the giant sand dunes. Today, this storied coastline—and specifically Kill Devil Hills—is most famous for being the site of Orville and Wilbur Wright’s first controlled, powered airplane flight in 1903. At the Wright Brothers National Memorial, you can visit the brothers’ reconstructed living quarters, see a replica of their plane, and stand on the spot where it made four takeoffs and landings.
The nearly 200-mile seashore is dotted with other small communities, including Corolla, where wild horses run free on the beaches. About 6 miles south of Kill Devil Hills in the beautiful town of Nags Head, visitors can climb the largest natural sand dune on the East Coast at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. In addition to offering spectacular views of the coast, the ridge is a popular spot for hang-gliding and kite flying.
