The airport used to be named after Lindbergh, but was changed to honor Carter. In addition to the state is a historical marker explaining Lindbergh's brief visit to South Georgia. He already knew how to fly and journeyed to Americus to buy a plane. He...More

Americus and Andersonville are full of historic sites, this being among them. For visitors who are interested in the history of flight it's a must.

It's a part of Georgia history! It's a monument that you should see. Bring the family. Just absorb the memory of life in this small town. Charles Lindbergh made history again by completing the first solo airplane flight across the Atlantic Ocean.

Saw this on Tripadvisor and we were in the area so we thought we'd check it out. There's not much too it, but historical buffs, airplane enthusiasts, or photo lovers might enjoy it. It won't take much of your time if you decide to go....More

A short drive from Americus is the Lindbergh Monument. Rather underwhelming but if you are into aviation it is a pleasant stop on the way to somewhere else. It is located at the Jimmy Carter Airport, where you will see crop dusters working their jobs...More
