Nothing to do this summer?

If you think there is nothing to do in Pittsburgh you are wrong!

Yes, there are actually things you can do in our fair city.

The Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium have a few family fun things going on. If you have kids the zoo can be a remarkable place. We love it.

The first thing they have going on is the Facebook Fan Night.

It will take place Thursday, June 2 from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm


Members : $20

Non-members: $25

Children under 2: Free

Facebook Fan Night is back! This special behind-the-scenes event was so popular last year that they’re doing it again.
After closing for the day on Thursday, June 2, they’ll re-open their gates for Facebook Fan Night, which will let our social media followers have the Zoo to themselves for a few hours with special behind-the-scenes experiences.

Then in June is their Father’s Day Celebration.

It’s from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. They don’t have anything special listed but it’s a nice change of pace for dad and the kids.

They have more going on in July, which I’ll post closer to that date.

The 3 Rivers Art Festival from June 3-12 @ Point State Park.

There will be 10 days of 50 bands and 450 artists. It’ll be fun in the sun for all. – You can find a small list of the creative activities there. I may actually have to talk Greg into wanting to go.

There is Tot Time at the Children’s Museum which goes from 5/31 – 6/1

Children ages 18 months through 3 years and their caregivers can learn through hands-on activities, songs and stories based on Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory.

The theory argues that intelligence, particularly as it is traditionally defined, does not sufficiently encompass the wide variety of abilities humans display.
