BBQ in Lexington - Lexington, NC

Fun cross country to visit any of the dozen BBQ places around Lexington. Friendly airport, no parking fees, courtesy cars available. They do ask that you throw a couple bucks worth of gas in the car while out, small favor to ask for use of the airport I think and was happy to fill it up for them. I highly recommend Backcountry BBQ. 5 minutes from the field and some of the best BBQ I have ever had. Loaded up and flew some back to RDU as well. This will definitely be a return trip for me. - Submitted by Dan Bishop

First Flight Airport - Kill Devil Hills, NC

Pay homage to the fathers of aviation. Coming into the field-you can't see it until you're right on it. Usually a crosswind, easy landing with deer all over (sometimes crossing the runway on landing), and plenty of tiedowns-bring your own rope if you're planning on stayin more than a few hours. There's only one tiedown with rope there. Free admittance into the park, AOPA just put up a new facility there for pilots-entry code is VFR sqwak code. It's a great place-only way to get to the beach is by bringing your own bikes. Dare County (MQI) is a 3 minute flight from FFA, and they have a crew car where you can go into town and get some grub. If you like seafood-go to stripers grille in-town-ask the FBO where it is(right next to McDonalds). - Submitted by cdmaker9

Howard's Pub on Ocracoke Island, NC - Ocracoke, NC

Join Airbatic Adventures on cross country to Ocracoke Island located in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The only way on or off the island is by boat or airplane. With a beautiful airport right off the beach, I'd choose airplane every time! Howard's Pub is a short 10-minute walk from the ramp and the food is definitely worth the walk in the hot Carolina sun! - Submitted by Matt Moore
