Flight takes many forms on the Outer Banks, from the thousands of migratory birds that travel along these barrier islands to and from their winter destinations, to aviation pioneers like the Wright Brothers who launched the world's first airplane off the sand dunes of Kill Devil Hills. Visitors can also experience the Outer Banks' inherent love of all things aerial by taking flight themselves with a day of Hang Gliding.
Once a small card shop at the Outer Banks Mall, in 2012 Hallmark moved two stores to the south and more than tripled in size. Now 3,400-square feet, the store offers a lot more than greeting cards. Of course, there’s a large selection of cards, Hallmark’s calling card, so to speak. In fact, the selection of the high quality cards this company is known for is better than ever. But there are also gift books and kids’ story books, toys, puzzles --- including one that features our own Jockey’s Ridge --- wrapping paper and bows, picture frames, decorative plaques, candles and stationary. Outer Banks memorabilia and calendars can also be found here. If you’re looking for baby or wedding gifts, you’ll find lots to choose from at this store. Personalized imprinting and invitations are also available to order.
