"Air Force Base before Hurricane Andrew" Homestead by grandmaR

Homestead Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 106 photos

Mostly my visits to Homestead have been to go to the commissary or exchange on the AFB. The base was started at the beginning of WWII, and was a real presence in the area until1992, when Hurricane Andrew roared ashore here. The base was ground zero for the powerful, category 5 storm) which virtually destroyed the base. It is now a Air Reserve Base.

My son also went to the races there.
