700 Arch St, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
Take advantage of the beautiful city of Pittsburgh and explore places like The National Aviary, The Frick Environmental Center, or play outside at Salamander Park.
Without an official team member in Pittsburgh yet, we have had a couple of road-tripping ambassadors tour the city. We are lucky that some happyly friends are Pittsburgh locals and shared their go-to list (thank you, Jackie & Liz)! Our visiting ambassadors were thrilled to hit the ground running and their feedback has been consistently enthusiastic!
In addition to absolutely loving the city and the surrounding area, our traveling ambassadors describe it as feeling very Covid-safe. The city is a beautiful place to visit and a family could easily spend a week taking it all in during any season. Pittsburgh is a great option all year round with ample hiking trails, swimming spots, and smaller hill skiing options for the winter too!
The National Aviary is a great place to start. It is America’s only independent indoor nonprofit zoo dedicated to birds and it is open with enhanced safety measures in place. The Frick Environmental Center is free and open to the public featuring indoor and outdoor classrooms, education programs, wide nature trails, and a beautiful garden, as is the nearby Mellon Park, which also boasts lovely gardens perfect for a picnic. Or take a ride on the Monogahela Incline.
The Children’s Museum is closed, but the Carnegie Science Center is open with strict safety measures, and is also a huge hit with kids of all ages! If you aren’t comfortable with indoor adventures, not to worry! There is so much to explore in Pittsburgh that you could have days of outdoor fun, such as hiking Trillium Trail followed by a picnic and playtime at the Salamandar Park playground. Beechwood Farms Nature Preserve and Hartwood Acres are also closeby for adventures ideal for any season!
