Kill Devil Hills Real Estate Listings
If there is a population center on the Outer Banks, it’s in the town of Kill Devil Hills. It is both the most centrally located of the major towns and the most largely populated. Kill Devil Hill’s home options vary dramatically from oceanfront vacation rental estates to year round home, condo and townhouse options. The beaches vary in size, but all have soft sand and offer numerous public beach accesses with parking. The Albemarle Sound is located to the west and is a haven for water recreation, including fishing, canoeing, kayaking, boating and stand up paddle boards. The name, Kill Devil Hills, is distinctive and wrapped in mystery; no one is sure of its source. What is known is that Kill Devil Hills is the birthplace of aviation, and the town’s Wright Brothers Monument celebrates the genius, tenacity and creativity of these two great American inventors. Those who enjoy long hikes and cycling can explore Nags Head Woods, a 1,100 acre maritime forest with hiking trails that has its entrance on Ocean Acres Drive in Kill Devil Hills. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate seeing the Outer Banks Daredevils, a summer league baseball team that plays games at First Flight High School on Veteran’s Drive throughout the summer season.
