For decades, Kill Devil Hills was a hidden gem, inhabited mostly by lifesaving employees and fishing family locals, until the Wright Brothers put it on the map in 1903 with the world’s first engine-powered flight. Not only did this famous “first flight” change the history of aviation forever, but it positioned Kill Devil Hills as a sought-after coastal destination for decades to come. Today, the monument at the Wright Brothers Memorial can be seen for miles around, welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors every year to this accredited Outer Banks town.

Nestled nicely between Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills is a collection of vacation homes along both the ocean and the sound, with a large population of year-round locals mixed in, allowing for an authentic Outer Banks experience for the out-of-town vacationer.
