COLUMBUS — Ohio has a famed history of aviation, but we didn’t stop amongst the clouds – Ohioans shot for the stars and landed on the moon! Celebrate that historic 1969 moon landing on July 20, National Moon Day, by exploring the birthplace of aviation and legendary moonwalker Neil Armstrong in the heart of it all.
“Ohio’s history of aviation and space exploration goes all the way back to the beginning,” said Lydia Mihalik, director of the Ohio Department of Development, which oversees TourismOhio. “These sites are important pieces in American history, and we should all be so proud that they have been preserved in our great state. One Moon Day trip to a museum or heritage site could be what inspires Ohio’s next generation of explorers.”
No matter which part of the state you’re visiting, you can have an out-of-this-world experience exploring Ohio’s space and aviation history.
