A COUNTRY WINE TASTING AT GLADES PIKE WINERY
Visitors step back in time when visiting this award-winning winery that is housed in a barn built in 1868. Glades Pike Winery is a quiet unhurried place where visitors are encouraged to leisurely sample the wide variety of wines produced here and tour the winery at their own pace. The staff will explain the wine-making process and answer any questions you may have. This Country Wine Tasting outing will be held outside under a tent, where you can sample wines, have some bread, cheese, and fruit. A light boxed lunch will be served on the bus en route to the winery. This is surely the way to relax after a long morning at the conference.

PITTSBURGH TREASURES TOUR
The first jewel of this tour of many treasures is a visit to Phipps Conservatory. The conservatory was a gift to the residents of Pittsburgh from Henry Phipps and is now a National Historic Landmark. The two and one-half acres of lush plantings and foliage are encased within this great glass house built in 1893. Paths meander through a Japanese Garden, a Cloister Garden, tropical settings, the Orchid Room, and an English country garden. This botanical trip around the world is the perfect beginning to a day replete with unforgettable legacies.
Andrew Carnegie's gift to the people of Pittsburgh, The Carnegie, houses four cultural centers under one roof. The Museum of Art is highly regarded for its permanent collection ranging from the old masters to the contemporaries, with a fine representation of the Impressionists. Hillman Hall of Minerals and Gems, Dinosaur Hall, and the Hall of Architecture are also among the wealth of treasures awaiting you at The Carnegie.
Lunch will be at Duranti's Restaurant in Oakland. Following lunch, our stop will be the Senator John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center in the Strip District. This museum is a treasure house of historical materials, from family photographs and personal belongings to industrial artifacts and corporate archives. From the early day of our nation to the technological revolution of today, no other place in the world can match the rich brocade of people and history that is Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. The building that houses the museum is a 160,000 square-foot renovated ice warehouse that was built in 1898 by the Chautauqua Lake Ice Company.
Our tour concludes atop Mt. Washington where the spectacular view of the whole Pittsburgh scene unfolds, a view that prompted Frank Lloyd Wright to call this the world's most beautiful setting for a city. You may descend the mountain via the Duquesne Incline, a veritable museum on wheels.
