Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Visit the Warhawk Air Museum

For a Father’s Day outing the guys are sure to enjoy, look no further than the Nampa Municipal Airport. Take Dad for a Saturday brunch at The Tower Grill Breakfast and Burgers, 105 Municipal Drive. Patio seating is available where you can sit and watch planes take off on the adjacent runway. After you have eaten some delicious diner food, head next door to the Warhawk Museum, 201 Municipal Drive, and stay the afternoon until the museum closes.

The Warhawk Air Museum is filled with an impressive collection of aircraft, automobiles, uniforms, firearms and paraphernalia from World War I, World War II, the Homefront, the Cold War, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Veterans are on hand to answer questions about the planes and choppers they flew or to simply shoot the breeze. Songs such as The Andrews Sisters’ "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" float from old-time upright radios and lend atmosphere to the brightly lit hangars. The museum is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Allow at least an hour to walk through the collection; enthusiasts will need two hours.

A visit to Nampa’s Municipal Airport area is a great Father’s Day outing Dads will remember for years to come.
