kitty hawk kites = let’s go fly a kite!

A toy store for all ages, any of the Kitty Hawk Kites stores on the Outer Banks are amazing places to visit. We found this piece by Kip Tabb on the Carolina Designs blog and thought it did a great job of capturing the feeling and history of the Outer Banks icon.

“Forty years later and Kitty Hawk Kites is still going strong!

If there is such a thing as a homegrown retail chain on the Outer Banks, it would have to be Kitty Hawk Kites. From their first location in Nags Head across from Jockey’s Ridge State Park, the company has expanded with stores from Ocracoke to Corolla. Actually, they’ve expanded beyond that with stores in Virginia Beach and Florida.”

“Teaching the world to fly” is the Kitty Hawk Kites saying. Read the rest of the story on the Carolina Designs website .
