Visit Dayton, the birthplace of aviation, with a low-cost, nonstop Allegiant flight from PGD to DAY!

Start off at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, where there’s something for everyone! Enjoy interactive and educational exhibits of animals and fossils. Another local museum to check out is the SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park. This museum offers exploration and learning both indoors and out. The park’s mission is to protect, preserve and research the cultural remains of the SunWatch National Historic Landmark archaeological site. Furthermore, it serves as a visitor and educational center for archaeology, Native American culture and heritage stewardships as they relate to the site.

Then, be sure to stop by the Wright Cycle Company Complex, named after Orville and Wilbur Wright. They originally opened a bicycle and printing shop to help fund their aeronautical studies, which led to the development of the first aircraft in the world! The complex includes the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center and Aviation Trail Visitor Center and Museum. 

Not far from there, you’ll find the National Museum of the United States Air Force. This year, they are celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Department of the Air Force and will be hosting events and exhibits to honor and commemorate the Air Force. Be amazed by the more than 350 aerospace vehicles and missiles on display – many rare and one-of-a-kind. Exhibit galleries include a Missile Gallery, Space Gallery, and World War II Gallery to name a few.
