Somerset Things to Do

  • Kings Covered Bridge

    We stopped to check out this bridge on our trip to Gettysburg Pa. It was a nice bridge .. there were several in the area and a nice piece of history. This bridge was built in the 1800's and repaired in 1905.

  • Fire and Ice festival

    This weekend event is always held the second weekend in January around the centre square in Somerset. With the often freezing temps there are ice sculptures along the city streets with wood fires to warm up as you take in the beauty of it all. Feeling a bit peckish well no probs, venders are on hand with local food and drink to satisfy those pangs.

    It has been a while since I've been to this event. There are crafts people doing period work showing how it used to be done. Sort of pioneering days stuff. It is rich in heritage and history of northern Appalachia which does differ a bit from the souther blend. It's good for a day trip as well as a weekend. There are many other places to visit in...

Somerset Restaurants

  • Downhome-style Buffet Fills You Up

    This chain restaurant is fairly standard in layout and decor. The wait-staff were friendly and welcoming. This is a great place to take kids, but there's something for everyone. Expect the standard buffet-fare with a downhome flavor. Plenty of soup, salad, veggies, and desserts, as well as fresh-baked loaves of bread. Warning: If you're on ANY KIND...

    Memorial to Flight 93 Heroes

    by SpiritualTrekker Updated Feb 7, 2006

    Few even know that there is a Temporary Memorial to the heroes of Flight 93, who took action against the terrorist-hijackers on 9/11. About 15 miles north-east of Somerset, you will find this memorial site, which is a designated National Memorial through the National Park Service. Over the next 10 years, the chosen design will be built and officially opened to the public. Right now, it is a fairly remote location (directions available through their website, or by asking for a copy when you exit the PA Turnpike) on private property. The day I visited was rainy and cold, yet there were people coming and going, as well as a volunteer on-duty to answer questions and collect donations. It is a very moving site, not to be missed if you're ever anywhere near Pittsburgh or Altoona and have about an hour to make this memorable journey!

    Flags, markers and a cross memorialize the heroes Base of cross with gifts and mementos Markers representing the heroes of Flight 93 One of many stone markers placed around the site Planned (winning) design for new memorial park
