If you are looking for something that is fun for the whole family look no further than the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.  The zoo is home to over 400 animals; including 22 threatened or endangered species.

Museums

Pittsburgh is home to many museums.  The Carnegie Museums, Children’s Museum, The Andy Warhol Museum, and the Heinz History Center are all great places to visit when you need to get out of the house, but want to stay out of the heat.

Concerts

With quite a few concert venues in and around the city, Pittsburgh is able to host a variety of concerts.  We get artists ranging from local performers to Top 40 artists to classics.  There is bound to be something for everyone!
