Make your hamburger, and eat it too, at Bayardstown
Summertime means two things: sunburns, and barbecues. If you find yourself with a crisped outer layer on your skin but not on your food, get down to Bayardstown for a piece of your very own backyard hangout spot. This BYO-everything social club is the perfect spot for those who want to impress their date with their grilling skills, but don't have the backyard to get the job done. And if you're not a BBQ master yet, just sit back with a cold one and enjoy some food truck fare.
Of course, we all love Kennywood, and will undoubtedly drag ourselves out there for a day of overpriced nausea followed by heatstroke. But this year, consider venturing a bit further outside of the city to Waldameer Water World. Not only does Waldameer have a slew of theme park attractions, it also has a water park. Because being soaked with water on that first date is much better than being soaked with sweat. And nothing says romance like going down a waterslide on a two-person inner tube.
