Often Referred to as The Heart of The Outer Banks
This week we dive into the town of Kitty Hawk! The town is a picturesque haven with many things to do, from golfing on the sound, to relaxing on the beach after a long day. With more shopping spots than its neighboring towns you can find classic cafes alongside big brand stores. The variety makes Kitty Hawk the perfect blend of classic and new leaving a little something for everyone!
