Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for flight instruction, Burlington Aviation helps aspiring aviators to take to the skies. The outfit rigorously cares for a fleet of six aircraft. Students can rent aircraft for logging aerial hours under the watchful eye of an experienced, professional flight instructor. Burlington Airport does not have a control tower, meaning students spend less time waiting on tower clearance to take off and land and more time trying to fly higher than a pet griffin.

The seasoned tour guides at the Conservators’ Center in Burlington, North Carolina have had their fair share of animal adventures. It is these that help them provide guests with once-in-a-lifetime experiences with exotic wildlife, with more than 30 lions, tigers, and leopards.

Tours bring customers unique experiences, such as eye-to-eye experiences with tigers, and an "oofing", the Center's description for the earth-shaking lion's roar when they call to one another. On every tour, guides will "oof" to the lions, who often respond. Visitors will also get to observe wolves romping through the woods, and the discovery of lesser-known species such as servals and binturongs.

Being true to their mission of wildlife education, conservation, and rescue, the nonprofit Conservators' Center houses animal residents who were in need of a new home. They all live comfortable lives in this haven for wild animals.

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

A member track of the American Speed Association (ASA), Ace Speedway has been entertaining admirers of amped-up autos since 1956. Updated and expanded as the racing sport sprouted, Ace Speedway now boasts a 4/10-mile oval track with 12-degree banking. Guests can wash away the work week with a sensory shower of speeding sights and rumbling sounds at the Friday–night racing series. Those who show up early will catch warm-ups and qualifying heats before taking in divisions such as Late Model, Grand American Modifieds, Mini Stock, and Souped-up Soccer Mom Vans. Flathead Fords, Southern Ground Pounders, and other exhibition classes sanctioned by ASA visit the track throughout the season, and a number of touring divisions, such as PASS All Stars, compete at Ace Speedway on occasion. To stop taste buds from complaining about missing the action, visitors can savor a hot dog with a 20-ounce drink.
