While staying at the Comfort Inn on the Ocean in Kill Devil Hills, you will be close to the fun and thrilling activities.
First, the Comfort Inn on the Ocean is one of the few Outer Banks oceanfront hotels that have LIVE entertainment on site. During the summer months, you will find Gutbusters Comedy Club putting on shows every Wednesday and Thursday starting at 8 pm. They have performers who have been on HBO and entertained the troops overseas. While the front desk does not sell the tickets, they can direct you on what to do.
Outer Banks History
The Outer Banks is also filled with a lot of history. Close to the Comfort Inn on the Ocean, is the Wright Brothers Monument to Flight. It’s open daily and includes a museum and monuments to celebrate Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first airplane flight. Continuing with history, The Lost Colony play happens May-August. This outdoor theatre production is just a short drive from our Kill Devil Hills Oceanfront hotel and will take you through the happenings of the first explorers from John Smith’s first voyage to the birth of Virginia Dare, the first English child born in The Americas. This production is definitely something to experience, but bring the bug spray! The mosquitos can be fierce.
Families of all ages will enjoy the options for putt-putt. There are several courses to choose from, but the staff like Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf and Mutiny Bay. Professor Hacker’s is located about 4 miles from Comfort Inn on the Ocean and Mutiny Bay is closer to our other beautiful hotel
Comfort Inn South Oceanfront . Both have fun courses and options to play the different courses depending on when you go.
Attractions in the OBX
A fairly new attraction to the Outer Banks is the H2OBX Water Park . This park opened in the summer of 2017 and has quickly become a family favorite in the Outer Banks. Located about 3 miles from the Wright Memorial Bridge, H2OBX makes for a great day trip from the Outer Banks hotels. The water park boasts over 30 attractions throughout the park. Attractions are designed to appeal to everyone from thrill-seekers to wee little ones just dipping their toes in the water.
Rainy day fun can be found on Roanoke Island in Manteo. This is the location of the NC Aquarium. There you will see otters, alligators, and of course fish. There is a sea turtle rehabilitation center on-site and a touch tank with stingrays. In the shark room, you will be up close and personal with them as you watch them swim through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Fun opportunities all around for kids big and small. Bring the camera!
