The Pittsburgh Staycation is Born

About four 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).   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 (Mt. Washington, to be exact); 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 a 6-10 hour drive; then, we return to town the following Saturday (often in the wee hours Sunday morning), spend the next day readjusting to life, doing mounds of laundry and preparing to get right back to work on Monday.  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.

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 often visiting places like  The Children’s Museum,  soaking up the sun at Sandcastle‘s Tad Pool, and
