Wright Brothers National Memorial (includes a museum, a really cool set of statues depicting the first flight, and a memorial/lighthouse--the hike to the memorial is really steep but there's a great view of the ocean. There's also a small airfield nearby and if you're lucky, you may see an aircraft make its landing. Be sure to take a paper airplane with you and fly it so you can say you flew a plane where the Wright Bros. flew!)
