Did you know that the NC Outer Banks have over 100 miles of shoreline? These beautiful barrier islands stretch more than 175 miles, from Corolla in the north to Cape Lookout in the south. And almost 60 percent of that area consists of a public beach.
A Perfect Day in Kitty Hawk in the NC Outer Banks
You may associate Kitty Hawk with the Wright Brothers’ famous First Flight (although that actually took place in nearby Kill Devil Hills).
But there’s much more to this quaint Outer Banks town than its role in aviation history. With its pristine beach, wooded coastal reserve, children’s museum, and waterfront restaurants, Kitty Hawk provides plenty of opportunities for memorable family fun.

Spend a Fun-Filled Day at Kitty Hawk in the NC Outer Banks
When you hear the words “Kitty Hawk,” what comes to mind?
If you’re like most of us, you probably think of the Wright Brothers, the world-famous flight pioneers who flew the first powered airplane just a few miles away at a site now called Kill Devil Hills.
Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve: A Wildlife Wonderland
Longing to connect with nature? Visit Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve in the NC Outer Banks. Bordered by US 158 to the east and Currituck Sound to the west, it’s a tranquil hidden oasis covering some 1,824 acres of unspoiled natural beauty.
Kitty Hawk Sunrise: Memory Monday June 19, 2017.
There’s a saying that says “red sky at night = sailor’s delight. red sky in the morning = sailor’s warning.” Well you can tell by this snapshot provided to us by Donald Morris of Watervliet, New York that a storm was on the way if that saying holds true.
Indeed the saying did hold true as one day after this photo was taken a nor’easter came in and the weather did go south the very next day.
Donald and his family stayed with Outer Banks Blue in the vacation rental property “Sea Spray” in Kitty Hawk. In fact this picture was taken from the deck of Sea Spray. Pretty good view huh?
Well the weather looks nothing like that this week. The waves are calm, the wind is calm and the temperatures are hot this week on the Outer Banks. If you are already here you know it will be a great week. If you are coming later in the summer we look forward to seeing you then and having some great weather for you too!
All the best from the beach!
Calmer Days on the OBX: Memory Monday October 6, 2015.
You have no doubt heard about the rough weather we’ve experienced on the Outer Banks over the last couple of weeks. Heavy rains and angry surf have made for bad beach weather.
This week’s Memory Monday Photo submission reminds us of calmer and sunnier days as Emily Burns of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania who stayed with Outer Banks Blue in August.
This picture is of a great sunrise over the OBX (boy are we looking forward to seeing the sun again).
Thanks Emily. We look forward to having you back and enjoying our beaches soon!
All the best from the beach!
Sunsets and Beach Scenes: Memory Monday July 20, 2015.
This week’s Memory Monday brings us two submissions (we’ve had a lot of submissions recently)…one from the beach, and one from the soundside.
Thanks to the Fitzgerald, Walton, Wade, Gunter, and Breeden families of Amherst,Virginia who stayed with Outer Banks Blue in the property “Stacked Deck” in Kitty Hawk who provided us this memorable group shot at the lifeguard stand near their house. They report that they could see the sunrise every morning from the front deck of their house
Memorial Day 2015!: Memory Monday May 25, 2015.
Happy Memorial Day from the Outer Banks! It is a gorgeous day here on the Outer Banks….a great day to enjoy the beach, or maybe enjoy a private pool in the back yard of your vacation rental!
This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Tammy Rolsing of Budd Lake, New Jersey who stayed with Outer Banks Blue Realty Services in the vacation rental property “Pelican’s Perch” in Corolla.
Who wouldn’t want to relax in the pool on a day like today?!
Thanks Tammy for your photo memory. We look forward to serving you all again soon!
Speaking of Memorial day and the unofficial beginning of Summer we want to take a moment here at Everything Outer Banks and send a heart-felt Thank You to all of the veterans out there today and a special thanks to the families of those brave people who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
As our sign in front of our office says it so appropriately today…
All the Best from the beach!
