There's only one runway at Marlboro Airport, which facilitates approximately 37 flights each day. That single airstrip's legacy, however, surpasses that of many international airports. The airport dates all the way back to 1922, making it the oldest continuously operating commercial field in the state. The excitement didn't really start until 1946, though, when some of the airport's pilots became instructors and began training a new generation of pilots.

That flight school would become Don's Flying Service, commemorating former airport manager Don LaCouture Sr. Today, its FAA-certified instructors still help new pilots earn their wings. The airport's small size lets the instructors give students ample personal attention, as well as allows them to take on the roles of mentors during private ground and flight training sessions.

In 1938, "The Long Island Expressway"?a vicious hurricane?plowed through John Hoenig's property in Thompson, Connecticut. His farm was destroyed, but when he decided to rebuild, he didn't rebuild the farm. Instead, he began clearing his land for the area's first 5/8-mile, high-banked racetrack. As soon as it opened, it was heralded as "the Indianapolis of the East." It was a destination for racecar drivers across the country.

In the more than 70 years since then, the track has blossomed into Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Today, it's one of the country's oldest tracks, besides that one high-banked crop circle from 1910. It plays host to three iconic racing events, including the World Series of Speedway Racing, and its modernized 5/8-mile oval now shares its space with a 1.7-mile road course. Even more exciting, neither track is just for pros. Civilians can try out the speedster lifestyle during driving school, or as part of the Driver's Club, which offers 30 days of members-only access to the track each year.
