About five summers ago, my husband and I decided to take a week’s vacation from our jobs. Instead of driving for eight hours and spending over $1,500 for our usual beach vacation we decided to stay “home.” Not only did the thought of sitting in the car for that long make us cringe, but we were also doing work to our home and just didn’t have the extra money…(by the way, now that we have two little girls under the age of two, we can’t figure out why driving among the peace and quiet of two adults seemed like such a chore at the time…haha). This decision to stay local created, BY FAR, one of the most enjoyable weeks I have ever spent on “vacation” (a very close second to my honeymoon, spent in Montego Bay, Jamaica).
You see, Josh and I both grew up in Pittsburgh; but, I think that like many locals, we often failed to stop and smell the roses regarding the wonderful things that our city has to offer. We really wanted to spend the week as “tourists” and do all of the things that we thought someone who had never been to Pittsburgh might do. We visited Kennywood one night (very romantic), went on the Just Ducky Tour another afternoon, strolled through the Zoo the next day, enjoyed a delicious dinner at Silky’s Crow’s Nest (they have fabulous outdoor seating overlooking the Allegheny River Marina; you don’t even feel like you’re in Pittsburgh), and journeyed to Vanilla Pastry to handpick gourmet cupcakes. The entire experience was AMAZING! Think about it, when most of us East Coasters go on a week-long summer vacation we leave on a Friday or a Saturday and spend a good 1-2 days recovering from the 6-10 hour drive; then, we return to town the following Saturday (often in the wee hours of Sunday morning), spend the next day readjusting to life, unpacking, doing mounds of laundry, and preparing to get right back to work on Monday (at least, this was the case for us). Ever hear the phrase, “I need a vacation from my vacation”? That year, Josh and I cut these stressful parts of vacation out of the equation. We made a decision to relax that week, move at a slow pace, put household chores to the wayside, and treat ourselves just like we were on vacation…only we were in the comforts of our own home (as well as spending a lot less money and doing a lot less laundry). “Ironically,” we returned to work the following Monday rested, refreshed and happy (our bosses appreciated our staycation theme that year, too).
Fast forward three years and along came motherhood. At that point, an even newer “Pittsburgh world” opened up to me. All of the sudden, I was a stay-at-home mom who was often visiting places like The Children’s Museum, soaking up the sun at Sandcastle‘s Tad Pool, and exploring lots of neat things at the Carnegie Science Center. That’s when it dawned on me! Pittsburghers need a discount ticket package that includes a variety of the city’s most classic attractions at one low price! Not only was I fondly remembering my Pittsburgh staycation experience, but now as a mom, I was looking for a variety of things to do in one product; cue PittsburghPass!
Last summer, PittsburghPass was introduced to Pittsburghers–a product we’ve never had access to before! Geared toward families with young children, the PittsburghPass includes one admission to Kennywood, Sandcastle, the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, Carnegie Science Center, and The Children’s Museum–all for $83.99. This year, an additional PittsburghPass is being introduced (geared toward singles and couples)! The Singles & Couples Package includes one admission to Kennywood, Sandcastle, & the Zoo for $65.99! Basically, anybody looking for fun things to do in Pittsburgh at a discounted rate will enjoy a PittsburghPass.
Not only does PittsburghPass provide you access to Pittsburgh’s summer classics at a discounted rate, but perhaps it can provide you and your loved one(s) with memories that you never imagined you could make on a staycation in the comforts of your very own city. If you have not yet planned a summer vacation this season, or simply cannot afford one, I challenge you to take 3-5 days this summer and dedicate it to fun, adventure, and relaxation among the amenities that the Burgh has to offer. Whether you decide to make PittsburghPass apart of this adventure, or not, I can tell you from experience that your staycation will be a surprisingly wonderful and memorable time.
Children's Museum of Pittsburgh
This uber-fun interactive exhibit-room includes all things that drive, fly, and roll. Fun for kids of all ages; this room features a life-sized SmartforTwo car, a 37-foot roller vehicle test course, a build-your-own Matchbox car race course, giant seven-foot tall tires, climbing rope-net and slide, parachute launchers, a pulley-enabled ceiling ball course, and more! This is a fun one for children and adults alike!
Carnegie Science Center
Located in the Highmark SportsWorks exhibit, the new Ropes Challenge will test your bravery as you defy gravity while navigating this high-above-ground obstacle course. There's even a built-in zip-line feature. Learn about the science of climbing as well as the physiology and perception of fear and thrill. The best part about this exhibit feature is that adults and kids alike can experience this thrill--but you must be at least 48'' tall. Have littles? They can experience the fun, too; SkyTykes is designed for visitors under 48'' tall who want to adventure a little closer to the ground.
The National Aviary
Hang out with the National Aviary's 20 African Penguins. This $1.7 million exhibit allows guests to experience the sights, sounds (and smells!) of a real penguin colony in this 360-degree perspective exhibit. These penguins are active little guys and gals--catch them waddling, squabbling, and splashing around.
Kennywood Amusement Park
Kennywood has a ton of big-name coasters, but this one is a throw-back classic that you MUST ride! This classic John Miller coaster is the only single track, racing wooden coaster in the United States; it is designed with a reverse curve so riders begin on the right and finish on the left. So, pick either the green train or the red train and see who's coaster gets to the finish-line first on this 2,400 foot track! Riders must be at least 46" tall to ride this one. Have littles? Check out the Lil' Phantom coaster located in Kennywood's beloved Kiddie Land.
Sandcastle Water Park
We love this tube slide because you can ride with a partner! The Blue Tubaluba was Sandcastle’s first dual rider slide. On this 450-foot slide, riders experience the water thrills of misters, waterfalls, and total darkness before their splash-landing in a 4 foot deep pool. Riders must be 48" and a capable swimmer to slide.
