Mars Spaceship – Mars, Pennsylvania
Mars Spaceship – Mars, Pennsylvania

You don’t have to join NASA to get to find your way to Mars, you just have to head to Pennsylvania. The residents of a town called Mars embrace the celestial name with a tribute to the little green men that might reside there. A small park in the borough is home to a flying saucer and a marker that declares, in several languages, “May peace prevail on Earth.” What a hoot!

Land at friendly Lakehill Airport near Mars, PA and either ride or walk to the flying saucer! Makes for great photos with your crew or kids! The airport has a nice turf surface - you can get fuel at nearby Butler Airport.

BTW, Mama's Family Restaurant is right across the street from the Mars Flying Saucer, so be sure to stop in if you are hungry after the flight!
