Spend an evening at Kennywood
Sure, it’s tradition to spend all day at Kennywood amusement park, but if you go after 5pm, not only is it cheaper, but most people are probably leaving by then, which means fewer lines for roller coasters. Plus, evenings at Kennywood are magical thanks to all of the lights and the classic atmosphere. Other than the spring and summer, Kennywood also has special holiday events, with Fright Nights in the fall and Holiday Lights in November and December.
Settle the Mineo's vs. Aiello's pizza debate
They’re just a few doors down from each other, but people couldn’t be more divided on these two pizza places. It’s a rivalry that’s gone on for decades, and every Pittsburgher has an opinion on who's got the best pizza in town (including us). Weigh in on who comes out on top -- just don’t weigh yourself afterward.
Find function at Construction Junction
Construction Junction is a large warehouse filled with recycled materials and appliances at reduced prices. Recycling isn’t a glamorous activity, but this place is a wonder, with everything but the kitchen sink (oh wait -- they have that, too!), including doors, floors, hardware, glass, mirrors, and more. This place is a DIY enthusiast’s heaven, but even if you’re not the crafty type, Construction Junction is a sight to behold. Visitors will love the place too, but will undoubtedly be frustrated when they can’t fly home with that clawfoot tub in their overhead compartment.
