Can't say I have much to say about Dayton...but if you can get to the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, do it. Easily the most impressive aerospace museum in the country. Plan to spend as much time there as you can...it's enormous. And free.

I went to the invitational they hosted last year, campus was nice if a little bit spread out and confusing (but aren't they all...). They had underground tunnels to most of the buildings from the home building which was nice because it was very cold. Which was exciting because I saw it snow for the second time :D !
TREES!

If you do go to Nats, how long do you usually stay there for?
Same question goes for States, but this thread isn't about that...
