From the mysterious disappearance of Roanoke settlers to the Wright brothers' first flight, the Outer Banks are historically important yes, but they are also postcard pretty with enough beach to share between summer visitors.
The Mint Museums are comprised of the Mint Museum of Art and the Mint Museum of Crafts + Design, and though housed at separate locations together they form Charlotte's largest art-oriented exhibit space. Developed as North Carolina's first art museum in the former United States Mint, the Mint Museum of Art showcases a permanent collection of art from the 18th century to the present, with more contemporary works on display in the new expansion space. Opened in 1999, the Mint Museum of Craft + Design explores a range of mediums, from fiber and glass to metals and wood with contributions from both emerging artists and established talent.
