The Wright Brothers took some of their first successful flights here, and the National Park at Kill Devil Hills marks these historic events with a foot monument and markers throughout the park designating important flights and tests. Sea turtles make their nests in these parts of the Outer Banks so be on the lookout for these wonderful sea creatures. Get a free permit and go sand boarding or take some hang gliding lessons to experience this dune in a very unique way.
The beach at Nags Head is the biggest draw so expect to spend most of your time here relaxing on the shore. For more activities, visitors can take the bridge over to Roanoke Island where some of the first Europeans settled in America at the Lost Colony.

Or visit one of the other two lighthouses open for climbing at Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island.
