The Oldest Airfield

Tucked away in the Washington suburbs is the town of College Park, home of the University of Maryland. It's also the site of the oldest airfield still in use. Right here, in Washington's backyard, the Wright Brothers conducted some of their most important work.

College Park has a Metro Stop on the Green Line, and is served by the East-West Highway. It's located just inside the Washington Beltway, just a few miles outside the DC boundary.
