Day trips and weekend getaways around Pittsburgh

One of the coolest things about Pittsburgh is that it’s close to all sorts of destinations for day trips and weekend getaways. Here are four destinations to enjoy for a day—or longer.

  1. Ohiopyle State Park is located southwest of the city and features stunning landscapes, miles of hiking and biking trails, rock climbing areas, and some of the best whitewater rafting around. You can go for a day to have a picnic and check out the natural water slides, or you can camp out for a weekend in a cabin or a yurt.

    Spending a lazy day pool side is just one way to enjoy summer. Residents of Alvern Gardens Apartments can enjoy their summer poolside for a $10 season pass.
  2. Thrill seekers might want to make a day trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, but with so many rides and attractions, you might want to stay for a whole weekend. Especially worth the weekend stay: the new Dinos After Dark runs Friday and Saturday nights until August 16th.
  3. Many readers might be familiar with Seven Springs Mountain Resort as a great destination for skiing and snowboarding, but it’s got  plenty going on in the summer, too. The Rib and Wing Festival is coming up next weekend on July 25th, the Mud in the Dark obstacle course run is taking place on August 16th, and on August 23rd there’s a wine festival. If biking, horseback riding, golfing, shooting, ziplining, and other outdoor adventures aren’t your thing, you can always spend your day at the spa or poolside.
  4. Anyone looking for a more educational trip might consider visiting Washington, D.C. Our nation’s capital has plenty of museums and monuments to check out, and a weekend there is a great way to dust off the cobwebs before sending kids back to school.

Before you can plan a trip, you need a home base to come back to. If you’re looking for a new home, contact Prudential Realty Company for our availability at a number of locations throughout the Pittsburgh area.
