Kitty Hawk is a town in Dare County, North Carolina, and is a part of what is known as North Carolina's Outer Banks. Visiting Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and Stand-Up Paddleboarding will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse and Somerset Place State Historic Site. Venture out of the city with trips to Fishing Charters & Tours (in Nags Head) and Edenton (Historic Edenton State Historic Site, Cupola House, & more). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Redeemer By the Sea Catholic Church, appreciate the history behind The Monument to a Century of Flight, get in on the family fun at Full Throttle Speedway, and stroll around Sandy Run Park.
