Dear Diary, Despite schools being back in session, your family can continue to celebrate summer. The season doesn’t official end until September 22nd, so there is still time to get in a last-minute road trip before the leaves and temperatures start to fall. You don’t have to drive as far as Ocean City or Virginia Beach either. There are plenty of fun, seasonal trips right around the corner! Here are a four family road trips that are located less than four hours from Pittsburgh. 1. Washington, DC: The nation’s capital is filled with fun, educational activities for the entire family. Plus, there are tons of free things to do if you’re balancing your back-to-school budget. Your family can check out attractions, like the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Have a blast at the Air and Space Museum. Go wild at the National Zoo. Or just take a stroll through the National Mall. 2. Baltimore, Maryland: Baltimore is a great aqua adventure for families! The city’s inner harbor is home to a Civil War-era warship, the USS Constellation, and the National Aquarium, where you can make a splash with hundreds of marine life animals like dolphins, sharks and alligators. Check out the other two trips that lead to family fun here. Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
