ITINERARY:
6:00 AM Depart Sams Club Mechanicsburg

6:30 AM Depart Weis Markets L:inglestown RD

10:00 AM Arrive Battery Park—board ferry to Ellis Island. Ellis Island, now a 27.5- acre site located just minutes off the southern tip of Manhattan Island, New York, is likely to connect with more of the American population than any other spot in the country. It has been estimated that nearly half of all Americans today can trace their family history to at least one person who passed through the Port of New York at Ellis Island. Now, nearly a century since the peak years of immigration, Ellis Island is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the National Park Service. You will be able to make a stop at the Statue of Liberty as well. Enjoy lunch on your own at Ellis Island.

2:30 PM Return to Battery Park.

3:30 PM Enjoy a visit to the Amazing tribute, the 9/11 Memorial site and museum.
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.

5:30 PM Depart for home; Dinner stop in route home (on own)

10:00 PM Approximate return
