  • No one else was at the Huffman Prairie Flying Field when we were there. The area is where Wilbur and Orville Wright spent about 2 years working on their flying machine. Very historical.  more »

  • 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.
  • Must see part of our history.

Modern hotels with both executive suites and standard rooms are conveniently located downtown. Just outside this area are family-owned bed and breakfasts, which have fewer rooms but an abundance of character. Both locations offer easy access to sites in the downtown area.
