    Great walk

    On our "dogs vacation" we went while in Kitty Hawk. Nice walk but very hot.

    Nice park & museum

    great place but lots of burrs in the grass, stick to the paved and gravel areas. Can see some of the museum from outside, dogs can’t go in. Nice long walk, my dog and I enjoyed it.

    Good exercise

    We had a great time. We got plenty of exercise. We knew our dog was not allowed in the museum, so we took turns going in. It was not a big deal. We were able to see everything. but watch out for the sand spurs!!! Stay on the path!!!

    The Reason For Our Visit

    I planned this short getaway because I’ve always wanted to see where controlled flight began. Beautiful park and plenty of walking for my girl Pippa. Unfortunately it was to chilly to walk up the hill or the path. No pets inside either so bummed about not seeing the museum. Fun though!

    Great place for a walk

    Our energetic 2 year old golden retriever was tuckered out after walking up Big Kill Devil Hill to visit the monument! Look out for sand burs- we got one out of her paw when she wondered into the grass. The grounds are leashed (6 ft) dog friendly, but no dogs allowed in the visitor center.

    LeBeaux’s Visit to Wright Brother’s Museum

    We enjoyed our family visit to this national park. LeBeaux was able to go with us around the grounds and up to the memorial. We took turns going into the museum since he couldn’t go in there. There was a watering station at the base of the memorial that was very handy.
