Day 1 • Johnstown, PA: We travel this morning to the Pennsylvania town known as Flood City, beginning our adventure at the Johnstown Flood Museum. Learn all about "The Great Flood" of 1889 and what’s been done since to protect the city and its residents. At the Frank & Sylvia Pasquerilla Heritage Discovery Center, learn about immigration and the steel industry’s impact on the area. One tactic to deal with the Great Flood was to construct the Johnstown Inclined Plane. The world’s steepest vehicular inclined plane is capable of carrying vehicles and passengers up or down a 70 percent grade slope in 90 seconds. (L, D)

 

Day 2 • Home: This morning, hop aboard an Amtrak train for a ride through Gallitzin Tunnel and around the famous horseshoe curve. We visit Boyers Candy Outlet and the Railroaders Memorial Museum in Altoona. We will also view the curve from the visitor center in this town that was once one of the most important rail facilities in the United States. Arrive home tonight from our trip into America’s rich past and present. (B)
