several sights you have not visited or would love to
revisit. Plan on two nights at the historic GETTSBURG
HOTEL (1797) on Lincoln Square, centrally located for the
guided tour of the battlefields, museum and Cyclorama.
Diner at the FARNSWORTH HOUSE (1810)-one of the most
recognized inns in America—will invite us to capture a
deeper sense of the three-day battle through the eyes of
Matthew Brady and his photographs.
A short two hour drive
from Gettysburg takes us to WASHIGTON, DC and a visit to
the NATIONAL SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION—one of
the ten largest churches in the world. Included with the
visit will be a guided tour of the ST. JOHN PAUL SHRINE
After checking in at
our MARIOTT HOTEL for our three day stay we will dine at
the iconic UNION STATION before beginning our evening with
a guided ILLUMINATED TOUR OF WASHINGTON’S MONUMENTS. The
next morning begins with a visit to ARLINGTON CEMETERY and
the Kennedy gravesites, the TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN and the
CHANGING OF THE GUARD. Afternoon offers a short ride to
ANNAPOLIS and guided tour of the NAVAL ACADEMY followed by
dinner on the ANNAPOLIS WATERFRONT.
Our final day in our
nation’s capital invites us to visit the SMITHSONIAN as
well as some more recently opened SPY, BIBLE and NEWS
MUSEUMS. The day concludes with dinner at the historic
GADSBY TAVERN (1785) located in OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA and
visited by no less than the first six Presidents of the
Leaving Washington the

PA and a short visit to the FLICHT 93 MEMORIAL and time
for prayer and remembrance of 9/11/01. Later we check into
Pittsburgh’s SHERATON STATION SQUARE our home for the
night. After a short rest we go to dinner at the CHURCH
BREW WORKS, a repurposed 1902 church replete with original
fixtures, windows and pews.
Our final day is filled
with seeing Pittsburgh from the vantage point of the
century old DUQUESNE INCLINE and cruising the convergence
of the Ohio, Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers aboard the
GATEWAY CLIPPER. A stop for lunch and boutique shopping at
Pittsburgh’s STATION SQUARE gives us respite before
beginning our drive home. The time spent together on our
return to Dearborn allows time to share stories and
anecdotes of a most memorable AMERICAN AUTUMN.
