Our first stop will be at The State Museum of Pennsylvania where you will see a giant chick, hike among the bear, porcupine, elk, deer and other creatures of Mammal Hall, follow Pennsylvania's Native Americans throughout time or march into the Civil War era and see remnants of its greatest battle plus much more. After lunch on your own, we will depart for a solemn visit and remember a day that will forever be emblazoned in the memories of Americans forever. We will pay tribute to the forty ordinary people who became America's heroes at the Flight 93 Memorial.

After breakfast, we will depart for Kentuck Knob. Designed on a hexagonal module, this home is a small, one story Usonian house. Usonian, meaning affordable for the average American, was a signature design of Frank Lloyd Wright. We will enjoy lunch and a tour at Tara ~A Country Inn, themed after the movie "Gone with the Wind". This afternoon we will meet up with a local guide to tour the Amish country in Western Pennsylvania. Our lodging this evening will be in Mercer, PA and dinner will be on your own near the hotel.
