Kids Day at Kitty Hawk Kites

Now that the weather is finally reminding us that winter is just a bad memory, thoughts of summer time and summer vacation are not far behind. The Outer Banks is widely acknowledged to be one of the finest, if not the finest, family resort around and there is so much for kids to do in the summer, that it can be overwhelming.

To help with that, here at Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates, we have compiled a short list of some of our favorite things to do with children. By no means is this complete-just a starting point.

1. Beach

It’s the whole reason people have been coming to the Outer Banks for almost 200 years. There is a whole world to be explored-the surf, the sand, ghost crabs . . . the list is endless.

2. Children at Play

Located in Bucaneers Walk in Kitty Hawk, the Outer Banks Children at Play offers a so much for pre-schoolers to do that it can’t be completely described. A fantastic resource on a rainy day. Open all year.

3. Kitty Hawk Kites Kids Day-Wednesday

Face painting, kite making, yoyo contests, the Kitty Hawk Kites Kids Day at their Jockey’s Ridge Store in Nags Head is the original Outer Banks all kids, all day event.

4. Duck Town Park-Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 10 a.m.-11 a.m.

Mid week throughout the summer, the Duck Town Park is all about kid’s activities. A children’s reading hour, children’s theatre, a magician. A great way to start the day, and done early enough so there is still beach time.
