Spend a week in Pittsburgh

Jodie from the adorable new online magazine for mamas, Sunshine Peach, sent us a week of fun times in her city of Pittsburgh, PA. We love the idea of enjoying tourist activities in your own city. Thanks, Jodie!

Monday – Ride the Incline and overlook the city
3 riversKick off your week by getting to know the city from a different perspective. Your little one will enjoy the ride on the Monongahela Incline from the Station Square shopping complex to the top of Mount Washington. This old cable car will slowly, slowly, slowly make its way up over the city while offering great views. Once you get to the top head to one of the observation decks or stroll along Grandview Avenue where you will be able to see Heinz Field, PNC Park, Downtown Pittsburgh and The Three Rivers Point (where they all meet). This is an excellent place for pictures.
