Kill Devil Hills, a town in Dare County, North Carolina, may sound like something out of an action movie. In reality, it’s a pleasant little getaway in the Outer Banks of the state, with plenty of action-packed activities for you and your pup to enjoy together, from the eleven dog-friendly restaurants to the surrounding beaches where your dog can have a splashing good time in the salty sea water.
While in Kill Devil Hills proper, you should definitely check out the Wright Brothers National Memorial, a key location in our nation’s history. While your dog must remain leashed, and can’t enter any of the actual buildings, don’t let that discourage you from visiting this national treasure! Bring a kite, or even a yummy picnic filled with treats for you and your pup, and take in the location where the nation’s first successful flights took place. You can visit the start and finish locations of the first flight and enjoy the beautiful memorial itself. Your dog may not understand the history behind it, but you’re sure to have a good time, and your precious pup pal will be excited to spend a day with their favorite person!
