Owner description: The memorial site dedicated to those who lost their lives on United Airlines Flight 93, September 11, 2001.

Went to the Flight 93 Memorial on a chilly, but clear day - a little reminiscent of the actual 9/11 - The park is beautiful, but plain-stated. The stones with the names, especially of the people whose stories I knew, did bring tears to my eyes - however, as time goes by, I tihnk future generations would be better illuminated through either multimedia or even plain=text inscribed in stone to tell or give synopsis to the individual lives - particularly the stories of Ong, Beamer, and Bingham.

The grove is in its initial stages, too - that might help bring it to perfection, even without the individual's stories.

We went just before the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and that was a very moving time and experience. I loved reading the individual stories of those heroes we lost that horrific day.

Remember where you were during this horrific time? (I know I will never forget) This is a place to pay respect for the fallen and heroes! As previous mention this is still in the process of completion, but what they have so far is wonderful & in the same token sad. It game me a new perspective on the magnitude of the situation and I have the utmost respect for the people, families and friends that had to endure through 9/11. May God Bless You All!

On our way to Cape Cod decided to take a detour. Was is worth it? YES! Anyone close needs to go. The people on flight 93 were true heros! God Bless the families. The open air of the memorial is perfect.

The memorial is well worth a visit even while it is in progress. The Wall of Names has been completed with the names of all of the passengers and crew of Flight 93, and the impact location is marked with a boulder. The visitors center is not yet completed, but there are chemical toilets at the site (clean with hand sanitizer), and the NPS staff are friendly and willing to answer questions. The memorial is simple but meaningful. The Wall of Names was built along the flight path of the plane as it headed for the impact zone. There are niches along the walkway for people to leave tributes to the people on board the plane; it was very touching to see some of the items. If you have the opportunity to visit, don't pass it by because the memorial is not yet finished; it is very powerful in its current state and it may be several more years before it is completed.
