Kitty Hawk Shopping

Shopping in Kitty Hawk is an experience, not just something to do on a rainy day. Everyone can find something special with the choices of locally owned and interesting shops in town. Whether you’re looking for homemade dog biscuits, local artwork, funky clothing and accessories, beach souvenirs or fishing tackle, you can find it all within Kitty Hawk. Note that, as you enter the Outer Banks from the north over the bridge from Currituck, all the shops on the right-hand side of the road (the side with the Home Depot) are in Kitty Hawk, while those on the left are in Southern Shores. We cover those shops in the Duck/Southern Shores book and tabloid or online at www.duckncguide.com.

Remember that locals call Croatan Highway -- aka U.S. Highway 158 -- The Bypass, and they refer to  Virginia Dare Trail -- aka N.C. Highway 12 -- as the Beach Road. Those simple names are just easier to remember!
