Visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial
Visit the site of the world's first flight with a trip to the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Located on the beaches of Kill Devil Hills in the North Carolina Coast, the memorial honors the site where the Wright Brothers conducted their first glider experiments.
Head to the visitors' center and see on display full-scale reproductions of the Wrights' gliders, including the 1902 glider, 1903 flying machine, and the brothers' first wind tunnel.
Outside, guests can stand on the spot where the brothers made their first flights and climb Big Kill Devil Hill for views of the ocean and view the 60 foot granite monument at the top.
