Birthday in Dothan

My son is always crazy about airplanes. He read about the US Army Aviation Museum in Dothan and kept on saying that he would love to visit the museum one day. Last weekend I decided to surprise him since it was his birthday. We took a flight to Dothan by Delta Air. The flight attendants were polite, the seats were comfortable, and there was great inflight entertainment. When we arrived at US Army Aviation Museum, he was so excited.

It had artifacts of George Washington Carver and other African-American inventors. Adventureland was a favorite for the kids. It had go-carts, a golf course, and games. We also visited the Antique Attic; it had a large collection of reasonably priced old antiques. We got a few pieces for our home.
