Kill Devil Hills. Brutal.
Have you ever been to or seen pictures of Kill Devil Hills? No it isn't an awesome band, it is a beach community that looks like the film Jaws is going to happen there every morning. I know it was just a movie, but I'm still not about to go looking for vacation rentals in the area.
With Shark Week having just ended, the relevance for shark attacks and people snacks feels appropriate. Kill Devil Hills not only looks like a scary town, but they weren't exactly trying to make the town sound pleasant when they named it. Are you serious, forefathers? Even if the name means you want to kill the devil, that still makes it sound like he lives in your town--and has a pet shark. But really, putting the words "kill" and "devil" into any kind of title is going to be unsettling.
There are plenty of vacation rentals ready in this town, so don't be afraid to check it out for yourself. However, if you are too afraid to visit, don't even worry about it. Just stay home and watch five horror movies at once--it will probably be pretty similar to the trip you would have taken to Kill Devil Hills.
