Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff of summer, and with most of us able to enjoy a long, three-day weekend, it’s also a perfect time for a quick getaway. Fortunately, there are many destinations within driving distance that are perfect for a two- or three-night stay in an RV, from state parks to amusement parks to the parking lot of your favorite baseball team.
Because Memorial Day is meant to celebrate the men and women who have died in the service of the United States Armed Forces, we offer a special Memorial Day package designed around a visit to the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and National Museum of the Air Force Base near Dayton, OH, about a three-hour drive from NBRV.
Wright-Patterson is the largest U.S. Air Force base employing over 27,000 military, civilian, and contract workers. The base’s history dates all the way back to the early 20th century when its namesake, Wilbur and Orville Wright, used the land on which the base now sits for experimental test flights in the dawn of powered, human flight.
On the site of Wright-Patterson sits the National Museum of the Air Force, which is the world’s largest and oldest military aviation museum. The museum features over 360 aircraft and missiles on display, yet charges no admission for visitors to come and explore its history.
Active and retired military personnel are able to camp with their RV at the Bass Lake FamCamp, which is located on the base itself directly adjacent to an airfield. Visitors, meanwhile, can camp just a few miles down the road at Enon Beach, which offers fishing, swimming and full hook-up sites.
The Memorial Day package is all-inclusive and covers roundtrip mileage, rental nights and generator use for this specific event. The package also includes early pick-up times and late drop-offs, permission for additional drivers, post-cleaning (interior, exterior and holding tanks), as well as final fuel and propane refills.
Estimated pricing begins at $1,150 for up to five nights and varies depending on distance, party size and options. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 440-282-5600 for an estimate.
