I had never heard of Kill Devil Hills until my second time to the Outer Banks. I thought everything between the sound and the sea was Nags Head. In the summer of 1976, we stayed in Kill Devil Hills at the Holiday Inn on the beach road round about MP 9. However, I have passed through, eaten and shopped there many times since then. From 1981-'84, we rented a cottage at M.P. 6 near Avalon Pier. The picture above was taken of my brother and me in July, 1981. I was pushing 12, my brother was 6 at that time. It was the day after a noreaster blew through (hence the rough seas- swimming was prohibited due to the undertow). What the photo doesn't show is the eroded beaches. It also can't accurately describe how cold the water had become either.
It is in the spirit of my original (1975) assumption that all warnings & dangers and packing list tips that apply to the whole of the Outer Banks be found on my Nags Head page.
- Pros:Nice beaches, a little less developped than Nags Head.
- Cons:The occasional Noreaster can spoil a holiday.
The second time out and part of the third, we stayed at the Clarion Inn (then the Holiday Inn). It was a nice enough... more travel advice
The week of 21-28 July, 1984 was the fourth year in a row we rented the cottage from Mr. Sykes a block from Avalon... more travel advice
