Wright Route FAQs

What is the Wright Route?

 

Over the past several months, the National Aviation Heritage AreaOuter Banks Forever and the First Flight Society have worked closely with the National Park Service at Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park and Wright Brothers National Memorial to unite the Wright brothers’ stories from Dayton, Ohio, to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, through virtual and in-person learning experiences.  

The “Wright Route” looks to provide the public with a fuller picture of the brothers’ lives and work, promote collaboration and dispel myths about a rivalry between the two national aviation parks. Many of the activities included as part of the “Wright Route” are inspired by Orville and Wilbur themselves, like biking, boating, camping, fishing, hiking, photography and more. 

Wright Route is not associated with, sponsored or maintained by a travel agency or a tourism bureau. It is a free online resource for educational purposes.
