Oregon: McMinnville – Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum

Located near to the small Oregon town of McMinnville is the excellent Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. I discovered this place a few years back and have been fortunate to visit on a couple of occasions. It is one of those places that really exceeded my expectations – I had not expected to find such and excellent collection of aircraft and space vessels in a relatively remote place (it is a good hour or so from Portland, Oregon).

Washington: Seattle, Tukwila – The Museum of Flight

Ever since I can remember I have loved airplanes, which is a little bizarre considering how much I dislike flying (although this phobia has not stopped me traveling!). Even in my career I have spent a lot of time working with and within the aerospace industry. So, it is not surprising that I am drawn to visit every single aerospace museum that I come in close proximity to.So, coming to Seattle, home of Boeing, I could not resist checking out the Museum of Flight.

South Dakota: Rapid City – South Dakota Air and Space Museum

I still get excited when I get the chance to visit a new museum dedicated to air and space, so when I discovered on our journey through South Dakota the South Dakota Air & Space Museum at Ellsworth Airforce Base I jumped at the chance to visit.Like many such aerospace museums there was plenty of interesting aircraft on display. There are over 30 vintage military aircraft ranging from World War II bombers to the modern-day B-1.

Florida: Central Florida – Kennedy Space Center

I am a bit too young to clearly remember the first moon landing but I do have memories of the excitement of watching the space shuttle launches and wishing I have been their in person. So, when we got the chance to visit the Kennedy Space Center I jumped at the opportunity. Sadly, there were no launches planned but it still was exciting to be visiting the site of these amazing demonstrations of man’s imagination and desire to explore.

About The Hoblets

We love to travel both near and far, for us it is all about the experience. You will not find us lying on a beach in Bali, we’re more likely to be found wrapped up in warm clothing walking into a bracing along a beach in Oregon, or exploring the back streets of a new city.
