Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25
We will spend the day on Saturday at the United States Air Force Museum, the oldest and largest collection of military planes in the world. Located on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, this truly is a sight to see! After our museum time has ended, we will return to the park for free time. On Sunday, we will head over to King’s Island Amusement Park in Mason, Ohio. This park features roller coasters and also a water park, so there is something for everyone. We will spend the day here, returning to the park for supper and overnight.
Monday May 26
We will get up and have a good breakfast, after which we will break camp and head back to Bristol. We should arrive back in Bristol by suppertime, but we will call with updates once we are enroute.
