You can’t fly to the moon to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the July 1969 Moon landing, but Ohio has created a very cool alternative: an aviation and space-themed road trip through the home state of the Wright Brothers and astronaut Neil Armstrong.

(While the whole route can be covered in 11 hours, we suggest you don’t try to do it all in one day.)
