Taking Flight With the Wright Brothers in Nags Head, North Carolina
The first time you gently crash into the soft, dry sands of Jockey's Ridge you'll understand why the Wright brothers chose this area for their famous first flight. The folks at Kitty Hawk Kites enable modern-day flights of fancy with low altitude hang gliding lessons for beginners. So don your helmet, hoist your wings, and sprint down the dunes into the salty Atlantic breeze. When you feel air between your toes instead of sand, it means you're flying. The sprawling sands and expansive coastal views of the eastern United States' tallest natural dune make this a beautiful place to commune with the spirit of flight.
