Observe the stunning pale pink and white cherry blossoms that symbolize the arrival of spring in our nation's capital with a leisurely luncheon cruise, followed by a narrated monument tour with time both on and off of our motorcoach.
Our travels take us over the mountains and through the valleys to both Williamsport and Wellsboro, PA for two leisurely excursions full of beauty and history, one by water on the Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat and the other by horse-drawn covered wagon into the PA Grand Canyon's Upper Gorge.
Arrive in Jersey City, NJ at Liberty State Park to begin a look back at our country's heritage and history.

Hop the ferry again to visit the Statue of Liberty which has symbolized freedom and democracy for more than 125 years. Stand on the threshold of where more than 25 million people entered the new world as immigrants.
Arrive at the Flight 93 National Memorial including both the Memorial Plaza with the Wall of Names of the Heroes of Flight 93 and the Visitor Center, dedicated on September 10, 2015.
