  • This Kitty Hawk Kites location is enormous! It has a very wide selection of not just kites, but all kinds of gear, accessories, and gifts all in the theme of some popular aspect of the Outer Banks. There is a fantastic floor of just aviation themed merchandise for sale, too. If you are looking for a one-stop-shop for gifts or anything like that and are in the area, I highly recommend. 👍
  • Great place!! I stopped in just to see how high the kites was and to laugh at the price. And I was wrong. Yes some can be over $100 but they are really big. The other ones have really good prices. There also a lot of other stuff shirts, toys, yard flags, gnomes, puzzles and I lot more. If you are driving by I would say stop in they have something for everyone. The 3 photos I added are just a few of the higher ones there are a lot that are way way cheaper and they are good size also.
