Kitty Hawk 

Most Americans first learn about Kitty Hawk in elementary school when studying man’s first flight. Wilbur and Orville Wright might have been the first people to choose Kitty Hawk for its weather but they certainly were not the last.  Prior to becoming a vacationer’s destination, Kitty Hawk was a sleepy fishing village where the majority of residents lived along the sound.  Many of these historical properties up to 150 years old still stand on the sound side of town along the shorelines and canals.

Today the older smaller ocean front beach cottages along Kitty Hawk’s ocean front are the norm in this area. The gaps between these cottages are reminders of storms like the Halloween Storm and Hurricane Isabel when some of these cottages were lost to the sea. These gaps now allow peeks of the Atlantic while driving down NC 12. Erosion to the Atlantic has been a part of Kitty Hawk's history. Here's more information on erosion on the Outer Banks.  Kitty Hawk beaches are desired by many because they are the closest beaches to northern metropolitan areas.   Public beach accesses are common throughout the town and allow both day trippers and vacationers easy access to the ocean.

Kitty Hawk has many subdivisions with just about every type of property available on the Outer Banks. There is Kitty Hawk Beach subdivision which encompasses much of the land east of US 158.  Most lots here are fifty feet wide and can accomodate at least a modest beach home.  Some of the deeper lots can accomodate five or six bedroom homes with pools. Just to the west of the bypass is Seascape Golf Course. Many homes here have both golf course views and ocean views.  Over the dune that runs the length of the town is old Kitty Hawk as well as many subdivisions in the Kitty Hawk Maritime Forest. Kitty Hawk Woods is probalby the most well known subdivision in this area. On the sound in Kitty Hawk is Kitty Hawk Landing.  This subdivision has many canals and soundfront lots.  Sunsets from these sound front lots are over the Albemarle Sound for a large portion of the year. 

Future site of new town park.

People typically don’t realize how much land there is west of US 158 in Kitty Hawk.  There are literally thousands of acres of marsh lands and maritime forest in Kitty Hawk.  Much of this land is protected as coastal wetlands or is owned by the state or a conservation group. However there are still acres and acres that still can be developed and will be over time. The majority of Kitty Hawk residents call the sound side home. Permanent residents enjoy the shade trees and the protection from cold winter winds in this area.

Today’s Kitty Hawk also offers the modern services Americans count on. Despite its small town feel, it is one of the busiest areas of the beach with numerous national chains including Home Depot, Wal-Mart and Hilton.  Kitty Hawk also has a medical center and a cardiac care center and is second only to Nags Head for its health facilities.

Kitty Hawk is an outdoorsman’s paradise. It is blessed with miles of canals available for kayakers to discover and boaters to use to get to the sound.  It also has its own Maritime Forest Preservation area and a few public parks.   These parks enhance the number of Kitty Hawk activities for both visitors and locals.

Property in Kitty Hawk is as different as the ocean is from the sound.  There is everything from mansions hidden away on the water to small two bedroom condominium projects sprinkled throughout the town.  A favorite of many locals are the homes along the Seascape Golf Course.  Here an owner can get both golf course and ocean views at reasonable prices.

The rental season here runs mainly from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  Every year Kitty Hawk sees more off season weeks rented by fishermen, golfers and empty nesters. Also, weekends in the off season can be very busy in Kitty Hawk with visitors who live within a three or four hour drive.

Kitty Hawk has a bright future ahead as this small town grows and develops into one of the nicer beach towns along the east coast.
