    Nice quiet area to go and relax, learn a little history on the birth of human flight and possibly watch a plane take off/land. Only downside is if you have younger kids they will need activities for outside.

    Love this place! It's a little hard to find but calling ahead and asking a Ranger for directions is very helpful. Nice place to eat your lunch (there are 6 picnic tables), see history (5 burial mounds, Wright Memorial and Visitor Center), and nature!

    A wonderful tribute to the Wright Bros and Paul Laurence Dunbar. Much to see and much to learn.

    There are plenty of interactive displays, including a difficult to master flight simulator. There is a plethora of information on the Wright's and early flight.
