Kill Devil Hills Travel Guide: 90 reviews and 181 photos

Kill Devil Hills, it gets under your skin.

This place is ALL ABOUT THE BEACH, OK? Celebrations of Flight, the brothers Wright got busy here, and Shopping, Eating, Fishing, Boating...
If you love the beach, kites, tanning, hanggliding, eating seafood, family togetherness....this is your kinda town!!

There is no such thing as a bad day!

Well, unless there is a hurricane, even a rainy day spent playing games, shopping, museums, or at the North Carolina Aqurium will be a great time for you and yours!
This is a very typical view from most ocean front beach houses in Kill Devil Hills. Get the Ocean Front accomadations, there is no kinda public parking, beach access. The easiest way to enjoy a trip here, is to stay right on the beach. Most people split a beautiful house, which really brings the cost down. You can find houses with 4 Master bedrooms, all ocean view, and split a $2,500.00 house 4 ways, which is really the way to go! These houses are made for big groups, and sharing is caring (or something like that).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Ocean, sweet beaches, not built up.
  • Cons:October-April is too COLD to enjoy the ocean!
  • In a nutshell:Best place for a Family Reunion on the East Coast!

    Looks like the perfect holiday spot - miles of white sand and those rollers that just keep coming. Love these places - leyle

    I certainly agree about fishing. I wonder if they bother to bait the hook.

    You make it look so fun!. I've been there only once, briefly, but plan to take Karen to the outer banks ASAP.

    Do you guys always stay up in Kill Devil Hills? We tend to go south to Hatteras Island...I like your page--the damage from Isabel was pretty substantial, I was down there last weekend.
