If you are FLYING into the Pittsburgh airport, it is 2 hours to our first stop (perhaps stay at a hotel closer to Cleveland on Thursday night). We can help coordinate carpooling. This is a “drive yourself” tour with a presentation at each site. A map and detailed itinerary will be sent prior to the event. The tour will allow enough time to check into your hotel and attend the Friday evening concert at the C-RS Cultural Center.
