Imagine a place where the Atlantic Ocean waves crawl onto the soft, sandy shore for as far as the eye can see. A sea salt mist cools your skin and the glowing sun warms your back. Family-friendly attractions, historic landmarks, and unique shops dot the town just beyond the sand. Where are you? You’re on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a 200-mile stretch of coastal paradise that caters to families in search of fun.

And what better place to stay and play than Sea Ranch Resort in Kill Devil Hills? An Outer Banks family destination since 1963, this oceanfront oasis has perfected the craft of family fun. With a prime location in the heart of Kill Devil Hills, this resort puts you just a stone’s throw from all the local attractions while also providing a variety of amenities to keep you entertained onsite.  

The excitement begins just outside your door, where sun, sand, and the sea await. Relax with a tanning session on the powdery beach while the little ones construct sand castles. Experience all the Atlantic Ocean has to offer with a wealth of water sports. Explore the waters while kiteboarding, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and more. Get hooked on a variety of fishing options including pier, surf, and charter expeditions. 

Just minutes from the Wright Memorial Bridge, you’re right in the middle of the action. Fly on by the Wright Brothers Memorial, which pays homage to the fathers of flight with interesting exhibits and a replica of the brothers’ first flying machine. Explore the sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge, hike the Nags Head Woods trails, or observe sharks, rays, turtles, and more in the state’s largest saltwater tank at the North Carolina Aquarium. 

The activities continue onsite, where you’ll have everything you need for unforgettable family fun. Make a splash in the enclosed heated pool, get your heart pumping in the fitness center, and keep the family entertained with onsite organized activities like magic shows, drum circles, beach yoga, and water pilates. After you’ve work up an appetite, sample some coastal cuisine on the oceanfront deck of the onsite Beachside Bistro restaurant. 

Once you’re ready to drift away, your spacious guestroom awaits. Choose from oceanfront guestrooms and condo-style suites, both of which showcase breathtaking ocean views from their private balconies. Catch a family flick on the flat-screen television, surf the web with Wi-Fi access, and spend some time with the ones you love.
