 I mentioned this last weekend and I visited it on Sunday.  It  is near Washington Dulles International Airport is the companion facility to the Museum on the National Mall.  If you like planes this is your place.  With a Space Shuttle (not one that has flown into space—they get one of those next year), a Concorde, the Enola Gay that dropped the atomic bomb and an SR-71 spyplane it has some significant planes.

Mark your Calendar and Register now for the BikeAbout

The Columbia Association’s (CA) 11th annual BikeAbout and Town Center walking tour will be held on Saturday, September 3 at the Downtown Columbia Lakefront.  Participants in the BikeAbout may begin the ride anytime between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. The walking tour will begin at 10:30 a.m.  The event was originally scheduled in May but was cancelled due to inclement weather.
This year’s BikeAbout route will take riders through Town Center, Wilde Lake, Harper’s Choice and Hickory Ridge, highlighting history in Harper’s Choice and the Middle Patuxent Valley and traversing some of the most picturesque pathways in Hobbit’s Glen and Clary’s Forest. Walkers will follow a route to Oakland Mills; explore a historic cemetery and outdoor sculpture; as well as take in the art and architecture in Town Center.
BikeAbout, organized by CA’s Columbia Archives and Open Space Division is a popular event drawing several hundred bicyclists annually. The route takes advantage of Columbia’s extensive pathways while uncovering the area’s historic and natural beauty. Signage and guides at key stops make this not only a bike ride but also a tour that helps area residents discover the history of where they live.
Pre-registration for BikeAbout is encouraged. Registration forms are available here; CA headquarters, located at 10221 Wincopin Circle; and Columbia Archives, located at 10227 Wincopin Circle. If you registered for the May  BikeAbout there is no need to fill out a new registration form.  Please send us an email to let us know if you'll be attending in September.
