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 along with private aircraft.

On our way to Andersonville we stopped here for a quick peek and history lesson. Small monument but interesting read. My son who is 7 actually thought the story of Lindberg was quite interesting. As we sat at the monument I pulled up info and pictures on my phone. Made for a great hour. Worth the side trip if you're... More

On our way to Andersonville we decided to go after a virtual geocache at the local air field which is exactly where this monument is located. Pretty neat place to see.

The site has some interest just from its association with Lindberg but it is just a small airport with the monument of Lindberg on the lawn outside. There is a plaque to read about his learning to solo fly at that spot. If you are right in the area it is worth stopping to see but I would not drive... More

Another piece of hidden history. Not many people know much about Charles Lindbergh before his 1927 solo flight from Long Island to Paris in 1927. Son of a broken home. Attended a dozen schools from coast to coast as a child. College dropout. He had long been interested in aviation, started flying with others in April of 1922, and to... More

For those interested in flight, they may want to take the short drive to see the monument and read the plaque. For others, don't waste time.

I was here on business and being a pilot it was cool to see this! Also the airport itself has a large amount of crop dusters sitting on the ramp. A lot of cool airplanes to look at!

Although there is not much to do in Americus, visiting the Charles Lindbergh Monument is interesting. Make sure you go during operating hours or everything is closed.
