Travelers to Dayton, Ohio, can take flight with the many aeronautical attractions located here. The city is proud of its aviation background, and visitors can take to the sky without ever leaving the ground at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, which has more than 400 air and space vehicles on display. The National Aviation Hall of Fame pays tribute to pioneers from the Wright brothers to Amelia Earhart to Neil Armstrong. The Wright brothers are also a draw for another Dayton attraction, as their original 1905 Flyer III can be viewed at Carillon Historical Park.

Flights to Dayton land at Dayton International Airport, which is within a 90-minute flight for more than half the U.S. population.
