Opens mid-October.

Bar in a renovated bank. This lively bar occupies a former Wells Fargo bank. The owners kept the bulletproof teller windows and the main vault, where bartenders serve beer and Jagermeister shots on Saturday nights.

Buzz over town in a WWII-era biplane. Or, for an even more thrilling adventure, take wing yourself with a hang glider over Kitty Hawk’s powdery dunes (Kitty Hawk Kites offers three-hour lessons for $100).

Take part in hands-on science exhibits or catch a space show where the first NASA astronauts trained.

The gallery is owned by Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former senator John Edwards.
