Next week, the kids will be off school and I’ll be off work. There’s no vacation planned, but a Pittsburgh Staycation is in the works. So, if you’re like me and procrastinating your Christmas to-do list, read through our ideas of things to do and see in our great city and play your own staycation this year. Bonus? If you still need a gift, these are great options to jot down in a card with a “hey, we’re going next week” message. You’re so welcome.

Pittsburgh Mills SkyTrail – Pittsburgh Mills Mall, Tarentum, PA

With two adventure ropes courses (going as high as 32′) and a 69′ foot zip line, you’re sure to have a fun time with the family. There is even a course for ‘lil ones under 48 inches tall. Hours are 10am – 9pm Monday to Saturday and 11am – 6pm on Sunday (but call ahead for holiday hours). Prices are $7-$14.

Questburgh Escape Room – 30 South 6th Street, Pittsburgh, PA

Definitely on our list is one of Pittsburgh’s newest attractions, an escape room! This one is appropriate for kids as young as five years old and is a great opportunity for families to problem solve their way out of the room. There are puzzles to solve and lost treasures to find. I know I’m ready to flex my logic skills and escape!

Levity Murray Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA

Levity is a great place to experience true relaxation. I got to review them last year and have been so in love ever since. Time in an isolation float tank sounds pretty awesome after the stress of the holidays. Check out their website to schedule your float.

Harlem Globetrotters – PPG Paints Arena, December 26 only

The Harlem Globetrotters World Tour comes to town on December 25. US Family Guide is providing my readers with 25% off tickets with promo code FUNFAM.

Pittsburgh Zoo  – One Wild Place, Pittsburgh, PA

We’ve had annual memberships for years, and I swear the best times to visit the zoo are in the winter months. There are less people and the animals are more likely to be up and moving. Bundle up, pause time, and take in one of our favorites.


As we add to our list of must do’s, I’ll be adding them here. Enjoy our city and share your adventures with us using #LILBURGHERS on social media. Happy traveling!
