Outer Banks, North Carolina

In 1908, the Wright brothers sent their aircraft soaring down the giant sand dunes at Kill Devil Hill just a few miles south of Kitty Hawk. Today, students can walk the expansive beachfront and discover tales of pirates, the Lost Colony of 1587, and even the famed Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
