n September 11, 2001, four commercial airliners were hijacked in a planned attack against the United States. Two airliners were flown into the World Trade Center Twin Towers and a third aircraft into the Pentagon. A fourth aircraft, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed into an open field in the Laurel Highlands near the small town of Shanksville, after the passengers and crew stormed the cockpit to derail the plane from its intended target, Washington, D.C. Established by President George W. Bush in September 2002, the Flight 93 National Memorial is a serene place of remembrance and honor. Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the Visitor Center, which houses a chronological display of the day’s events with artifacts from the crash, flight paths and information about the flight and its passengers. Near the

Memorial Plaza stands The Wall of Names, a white marble wall positioned on the flight path and engraved with each hero’s name. But the memorial isn’t complete yet. The final phase of the memorial, the Tower of Voices, will be unveiled in September 2018. At 93 feet tall, the tower will act as a living memorial, representing the eternal voices of the 40 passengers and crew members, containing 40 uniquely pitched wind chimes that will vary in sizes of 10, 8 and 6 feet. Visitors to the memorial will be able to see the Tower of Voices from Route 30 upon arrival. Whether your visit serves as a pilgrimage, a patriotic rite of passage or a historical and educational experience, one thing is for certain, the Flight 93 National Memorial is incredibly thought-provoking and emotionally powerful. The memorial is open from sunrise to sunset year-round, including all holidays.


SPEND THE DAY Visit Pennsylvania’s largest state park, Ohiopyle, which features 80 miles of hiking and biking trails, a 30-foot waterfall and some of the best whitewater rafting in the eastern United States.

he Palace Theatre, located in downtown Greensburg, opened in 1926 during the peak of vaudeville as the Manos Theatre. Fast forward 92 years, and there are still many remnants of the original theatre’s French renaissance-style structure in place. The goldfish pond of mosaic tile and murals are still present, but the most remarkable feature is the golden marble ticket booth.

SummerSounds is a series of free outdoor concerts in downtown Greensburg’s beautiful St. Clair Park. The music varies from rock to R&B to country.

SAINT VINCENT SUMMER THEATRE will be celebrating its 50th season in 2018! Not only has Summer Theatre put on a wide range of popular productions, but the program also gives college students the opportunity to work with theatre professionals.

he Great Allegheny Passage is celebrating 40 years in 2018! What started as just a small bike trail between two charming Laurel Highlands towns has grown into a phenomenon that has beckoned bikers and hikers from all over the world.

Along the way, explore charming trail towns with rich histories, friendly residents and helpful visitor centers. Put your kick stand down, eat a great meal, shop, enjoy community events and attractions or call it a day at a nearby quaint bed and breakfast or hostel.

The fourth longest rail-trail in the U.S., which once felt the heavy rumble of freight trains, the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) stretches 150 miles from Pittsburgh, through the Laurel Highlands and finally to Cumberland, Md. There, the GAP connects with the C&O Canal Towpath, extending all the way to the Georgetown district of Washington, D.C., for a total length of 334.5 miles.

A trip on the GAP doesn’t come without a view. You will see beautiful waterfalls, stunning gorges, windmills dotting the hillside and native wildlife. Keep your eye out for bald eagles, osprey and red-tailed hawks, they have been spotted from the trail!

The GAP offers easy rides and walks for hikers, bikers, birdwatchers, couples and families with baby strollers. Gear up for a long-haul adventure or pick a section and bike from town to town for shorter family-friendly trips.

Don’t forget your camera; there are plenty of photo ops along the trail. Take a selfie at the Eastern Continental Divide, the Pinkerton High Bridge and Low Bridge or the 101-foot-high Salisbury Viaduct.


7 TIPS WHEN HIKING & BIKING IN THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS, DON’T FORGET

CELL PHONE coverage is often limited in parks, so always bring a paper map WEAR comfortable, sturdy shoes PACK plenty of water and snacks Hiking and biking is more fun with A FRIEND STAY ON THE TRAIL TAKE ONLY PHOTOS, leave only footprints. Keep the Laurel Highlands beautiful! Speaking of photos, use #LAURELHIGHLANDS when posting to social media. We love seeing your adventures!

The Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail is a 70-mile backpacking and hiking trail, stretching from Ohiopyle State Park to the Conemaugh Gorge near Johnstown. On your journey, you will see beautiful wildflowers, large rock formations and maybe even a white-tailed deer. You can start from anywhere, and regardless of where you start, you will find an overnight area every 8 to 10 miles, where you can rest and recharge among the towering trees with fresh water and shelter. Where there is a shelter, there is a connector trail, marked with blue blazes, that leads to and from a parking area. Pick a weekend and try to tackle as many miles as you can.

SPRING

• Once the snow melts, try something new like an exhilarating zip lining or rock wall climbing experience at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. • The Laurel Highlands has miles and miles of pristine trout streams. The rivers and lakes are stocked in the spring, so check out the Laurel Highlands Trout Trail for incredible fishing opportunities. • This spring, attend the Pennsylvania Maple Festival in Meyersdale, aka Maple City, USA. Learn how to tap a tree and boil the sap into syrup and then stock up on maple products to enjoy at home!

FALL

• The Laurel Highlands is home to three of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural creations. Fall’s vibrant foliage serves as a stunning backdrop, making it the perfect time to visit. • Take a leaf-peeping drive around the Laurel Highlands and find 10 historic covered bridges surrounded by red, orange and yellow leaves. • History comes to life at Fort Ligonier Days, a weekend-long festival in Ligonier. Watch amazing reenactments at the Fort, catch the community parade and browse hundreds of craft booths. WINTER

SUMMER

• There are more than 700 miles of hiking and biking trails in the Laurel Highlands. Soak up the sun, but not too much of it, and take a walk in one of the state parks. • Summer in the Laurel Highlands is as fun as it is hot. Cool off at Ohiopyle State Park with natural waterslides, waterfalls and whitewater rafting. • Watch the Pittsburgh Steelers get ready for the upcoming season at training camp practices at Saint Vincent College.

• Take the family for a weekend getaway to Seven Springs Mountain Resort and experience the region’s largest snow tubing park or take a magical ride on a horse-drawn sleigh! • Rent a cabin or chalet, indulge in a spa treatment then relax by the fireplace and watch the snow fall from inside. • Celebrate the holiday season in the Laurel Highlands at Overly’s Country Christmas, a Christmas village with a marvelous light display that has been growing since 1956.

Your guide will teach you the basics of how they control the sled while instructing the dogs with voice signals. Because the Laurel Highlands is a four season destination, you can go for a Jamaican Dog Sledding adventure in the summer, too.

If you like unexplainable, weird attractions, the Laurel Highlands will not disappoint. The Kecksburg UFO incident is probably the most popular of the region.

88

On Dec. 9, 1965, Kecksburg residents reported that a fireball streaked through the sky and then an object showed up in the nearby woods. Conspiracy theories are still being thrown around today as to what really happened. The local newspapers reported on it, a documentary called “Invasion on Chestnut Ridge� was recently released and eyewitnesses still swear by what they saw that night. Today, the Laurel Highlands celebrates its paranormal past with events like an annual UFO Festival, obviously held in Kecksburg, with guest speakers and plenty of costumes. Was it aliens, a meteor or something else entirely? We may never know.
