There's a place in Northeast Florida by the name of Spruce Creek, and of the 5,000 residents who live there, pretty much every single one of them owns an airplane. It's kind of their thing.

There are 700 hangars in Spruce Creek, and many of the town's residents are pilots who spend their free time at the local flying clubs, taking advantage of the town's airstrip. Frank Sinatra and John Travolta are just a few of the celebrities who have lived at Spruce Creek, though Travolta was asked to leave because his Boeing 707 caused too much noise for the local community.

Spruce Creek is one of 600 "fly-in communities" in the US, which exist thanks to an abundance of post-WWII military air strips. Today many of them are located in Texas, Arizona, Washington, and Florida, where aviation nuts flock to ogle amazing planes and geek-out with their fellow air obsessed fanatics.

If you're not loaded enough to buy a plane, that's all right, get out there and explore the Museum of Flight, the Frontier Flight Museum, or the Wright Brothers National Monument, where you can get your aviation kicks without ever leaving the ground.
