Burgh Perfect Staycation Step #6: Venture Out

Pittsburgh rocks. No doubt about it. There is more than enough to do here and we could have stayed busy without ever leaving the city during the staycation. However, we did venture beyond for exactly one day. One of our stops was Ohiopyle. While we didn't have nearly enough time to play there, we did manage to let Alexis hit yet another "beach." She loved it.

  1. You make me want to throw the boys in the truck tomorrow and GO THE HECK HOME. Sigh. Alas, BB has school.

    Beautiful pics!

  7. Ohiopyle is gorgeous, isn't it? That's one of the things I love about Pittsburgh, too: you got your museums and then you got your nature. You should trek up to Moraine State Park sometime -- less than an hour away, and very pretty. Good for a picnic!

    ciao,

  8. Ohiopyle rocks for picture taking when the leaves change, but you have to time it just right.

  19. My kids would be so jealous! We mean to get there again but you know how it is. We were there once w/the cousins and had a string of 6 kids trailing out into a current, floating down the river, anchored to Sam. They talk about that yet.

  27. I must admit that I have never, ever thought of Pittsburgh as a vacation destination, but reading about all the cool things you have done on your 'Staycation' has me thinking differently! Not only that, you have inspired me to really start looking for all of the little things that Denver has to offer!
