New York City Trip - December 2018
Our latest adventure in the Big Apple included three fabulous shows - My Fair Lady and Anastasia on Broadway, and the Rockettes Christmas Show at Radio City! Additional highlights: dinner at the legendary theatre district restaurant, Carmine's; a guided tour of New York City; and plenty of free time for Christmas shopping at what was once known as the World's Largest Department Store - Macy's in Herold Square!
Heinz History Center: Destination Moon - November 2018
SURE members enjoyed a day trip to the Heinz History Center which included an informative 90-minute guided tour of Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission, a commemoration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the day Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the Moon. Our group learned how Pittsburgh innovators and companies, including Westinghouse, used their “We Can Do It!” spirit to play a crucial role in the Apollo 11 mission, and discover how the region’s brightest minds continue to impact the space program today. The exhibit on loan from the Smithsonian also featured an immersive “launchpad” entrance, the iconic audio from mission control, and interactives like a lunar lander video game and virtual 3-D tour of Columbia’s interior.

We kicked off summer in style with our excursion into Delaware. Our travels focused on exploring the Nation's First State and its Riches, Wines, Museums, Racing, and History. This unique 4 day, 3 night trip allowed us to experience High Tea at the Historic Hotel DuPont, stroll the beautiful beaches of Rehoboth, explore the State Police and the Military Aircraft Museums, savor a Winery tasting, navigate the Dover International Speedway - aka the Monster Mile, and the revel in the DuPont's lovely Winterthur House Museum and Gardens. Enjoy these photos from the trip!
