Here, here! I've done that before, and Monticello and Colonial Williamsburg were simply fascinating. I highly recommend the two if you're into history like I am.

Hi Ashley,
I live in Kill Devil Hills. A couple of things to keep in mind-if you are traveling to the Duck-Pine Island-Corolla area, realize that traffic can be a nightmare! I wouldn't attempt going up that way on a rainy day since it is a 2 lane road and EVERYONE who is staying up there will be on the road.

You can travel south and see some great sites:
Jockey's Ridge is an incredibly tall sand dune. Go early morning or late evening to enjoy the view and have the sand not too hot. Avoid on windy days. Kitty Hawk Kites is across the street from Jockey's Ridge and it is a fun place for the kids.
On Roanoke Island you can visit the Aquarium, the Elizabeth II (a reproduction of the ship the colonists sailed over on) and catch the play "The Lost Colony." Hurricane Mo's is a terrific but a little pricey restaurant in Pirate's Cove Marina. You can eat and enjoy the sunset over the sound.
Stop by and say hi at our store if you like fishing-Fishin Fever Bait & Tackle. We love to meet new people!
