Super Staycations Around Pittsburgh Heather Hopson July 4, 2016 Mom, Pittsburgh & Philly Dear Diary, In the past week, my daughter graduated from preschool; my nephew graduated from middle school; and my cousin graduated from high school. The ceremonies were marked with celebrations. We celebrated their accomplishments, the end of the school year and the start of summer. Now, we’re mapping out how we’ll spend the time off. Last year, I registered my daughter in summer camp. But this year, I decided to take time off from work and hang out in Pittsburgh. I’ll save big bucks on gas by staying in town. And can splurge on cotton candy, corn dogs and ice cream trucks! We’ll have several weekends to embark on local adventures, which aren’t too far to get to by car. Here are some of the fun adventures we’ll embark on. Day One: Imagination Adventure All summer long, kids can explore Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. The new exhibit is based on the popular PBS Kids television series and guides kids through activities about care and creativity. The museum also boosts a water room, art studio and climbing wall. Day Two: Courageous Adventure Take a day trip to Idlewild and Soak Zone in Ligionier! This is the perfect park for little kids. They can take a ride on a roller coaster that’s just their speed, walk through storybook forest or make a splash at the water park. Click here for activity ideas for the entire week!
