    Go here: VFR Raster Charts
    and download the sectional for your area.
    Find your house and look at the "airports" near you.

    Actually, here is a better site. It works with your home computer or a mobile device. It provides you with not only sectionals, but also a lot of other useful information.
    VFRMAP - Digital Aeronautical Charts
    if the airports near you have the magenta circle around them, they are "real" airports. I live within the circle for my local airport and fly all the time on my property. It's not a problem unless you are very close.
