iFLY is where the dream of flight becomes a reality. Become a part of something bigger
than yourself. You’ll fall in love with the sensation & the freedom that comes with floating on
air and when you do, there’s a new & exciting sport of indoor bodyflight to become involved
in. The iFLY experience, from check-in to check out, lasts roughly 1.5 – 2 hours and is
equivalent to 1.5 skydives.

Boulevard Brewery Tour Enjoy a private, guided walking tour of their
expansive facility and after the tour head to
the Beer Hall Tasting Room for samples of
their broad selections.

National WWI Museum and Memorial Steeped in history, the National WWI Museum and Memorial is America’s only museum dedicated to sharing the stories of the Great War through the eyes of those who lived it. Interactive displays, thought-provoking films, and eyewitness testimonies help guide visitors through one of the largest collections of WWI artifacts in the world. From the first
shots fired in 1914 to the last attempts at peace in 1919, this award-winning museum offers a global perspective of “The War to End All Wars,” and includes firsthand accounts from the battlefield and home front alike. Visit the National WWI Museum and Memorial and learn why the First World War wasn't the last.
