The National Museum of the United States Air Force on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, near Dayton, Ohio, is the oldest and largest air force museum in the world.

It’s not exactly convenient to a major population center, but it’s well worth the trip from Dayton. Among the highlights of the museum, which is housed in large domed hangars, are several of presidential jets used by presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, as well as Bockscar, the B-29 bomber that dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki at the end of World War II (the Enola Gay, which dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, is at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, outside Washington DC).

Travel Insurance For Your Trip to United States

I never travel without travel insurance, and I've run into several situations where I've had to make claims. I consider it essential.

But shopping for travel insurance can be a pain and confusing. Thankfully, there are some travel insurance comparison sites that show you a wide range of plans, make it easy to compare coverage, and can save you money at the same time. And the coverage can be much better tailored to your specific needs than the checkbox offering at travel booking sites or through your credit card.

These are some good places to shop for travel insurance for your next trip to United States :

Hopefully, you won't need it, but if something goes wrong, you'll sure be glad you have it!
