Drop a line in the water at Avalon Pier, a classic structure in Kill Devil Hills with a bait and tackle store, throwback arcade with games and pool tables, and a small cafe. For $1 admission, you can stroll to the end of the pier for a unique vantage point looking back on the shoreline, or purchase a daily or weekly fishing pass to try your hand at catching flounders, stripers, or whatever is biting (all depends on the day, the season, and your skill!). The pier was built in 1962 and has withstood its fair share of nor’easters and hurricanes. It remains a place where locals gather to fish and surf, and out of towners visit for a taste of nostalgic Outer Banks history.

When the Wright Brothers first arrived on the Outer Banks in 1900 from Dayton, OH, they initially stayed with Bill Tate, the assistant Post Master for the town (his wife was the Post Master). The house is no longer standing, although there is a marker indicating where it was located on Moor Shore Road. That section of town is often called Kitty Hawk Village and is the oldest settled part of the municipality. Wilbur and Orville Wright later moved their camp to the sand dune and saw a grassy area to the south; this was an area referred to as Kill Devil Hill because of the large dune there. At that time they were still in Kitty Hawk Township, which explains why Kitty Hawk is listed as the location of the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight.

The Wright Brothers Memorial in Kill Devil Hills is a beautiful space to explore the historical significance of their first flight on Dec 17, 1903. Explore the museum, climb the winding walkway up the hill to the monument, or climb on the life-size replica statue of their 1903 flyer at the base of the hill.

Looking for a more exciting souvenir than an OBX T-shirt? Stop by the Hang 12 Studios at Seagate North Shopping center in KDH.

Brad was a chef at Elizabeth’s Cafe in Duck before pursuing art full-time, and his creativity is apparent. He leads adult and kids classes throughout the summer, choosing different themes for each one, from mermaids to lighthouses to fishing piers. We’ve hosted a few Carolina Designs parties here, and they are loved by all!
