Flight 93 Memorial & Fallingwater
1 night/2 days – Oct. 24-25, 2016
$276 per person double occupancy
Dear Way To Go Tours,
I promised myself to return to the Flight 93 Memorial when Stage 4, the last stage of the memorial construction was completed. When I was first at the sight, there was a single billboard, the size of a single section of a school blackboard, for posting remembrances of the victims. Today, there is a new 6 mile road back into the area from the nearest major highway and Stage 4 was dedicated last September. It is time to return! “A common field one day….a field of honor forever!” We pay our respects!
