The Weleski family has been helping families adjust to their new homes for four generations. Over the years, we’ve worked with many families moving long-distance to the Pittsburgh area. Below are the top attractions that our team enjoys sharing with new members of the community:
Wild Animals. Your brood is likely to simply go ape at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. It’s big—sprawling over 77 acres—and features about 4000 species of animals in their natural habitats. In September 2016, for the second time, Parents Magazine ranked this the fourth best zoo for kids in the country. Hours vary by season, so check out the website to plan a visit to this awesome attraction.
Interactive Museums. People love Pittsburgh, but kids especially love Pittsburgh for the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. It’s an interactive wonderland and imagination igniter for kids of all ages—including you, Dad! It’s located on the north side of the city in the Allegheny Center neighborhood, and it’s open every day from 10 am to 5 pm.
Amazing Views. The Duquesne Incline is an engineering marvel that takes you up the side of Mt. Washington. When you reach the observation deck, you’ll see a fabulous panorama of the city and its three rivers. Is it the most beautiful view in America? You decide. The ride operates from early morning to after midnight every day. You’ll find it on the southern bank near the three-river confluence.
Water Adventures. With three rivers, Pittsburgh is famous for river fun. Which includes enchanting river boat cruises. The view of the city from the river is unforgettable. Choose from several kid-themed packages—the pirate voyage dinner cruise is a favorite. Embark on your family river adventure at Historic Station Square, on the southern shore of the Monongahela River.
Pittsburgh Tours. Just Ducky Tours gives you an exciting excursion over land and water. You’ll enjoy a fully narrated tour through the city in a WWII amphibious vehicle. Your adventure starts at Station Square with departures every 90 minutes from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm, April through November.
