This post is brought to you by VisitPITTSBURGH! Thanks for hosting our activities while in Pittsburgh!
Our last stop on our Pittsburgh trip was the zoo. We saved it for last because we knew we would be heading out of town. The zoo was fairly easy to find. One thing I really appreciated about the Pittsburgh Zoo is that it felt like it was in the wilderness. There was a lot of walking, which we didn’t mind. Here are some of the highlights of our trip.
I would be lying if I said the animals are not a special part of the zoo. I felt like the Pittsburgh Zoo was awesome in the fact that the animals have such huge habitats. I just loved walking around with my family and taking in the awesomeness of the beauty of the animals and the plants.
I don’t care where we are, my family has to indulge in some food. We decided to eat at one of the restaurants. My family had pizza and my husband and I had BBQ chicken over fries. It was an amazing meal and the price was not too bad for being at a tourist attraction in a big city.
A nice bonus in the heart of the Pittsburgh Zoo is the Aquarium. I loved that our tickets covered both areas. The aquarium was well put together and my kids loved seeing all of the different animals of the sea.
Something I really appreciated as a mom was the fact that the zoo is very interactive. The kids get to learn along the way. I can guarantee that there is no room to be bored at the Pittsburgh Zoo, you’re busy learning along the way!
If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you need to check out the Pittsburgh Zoo. It is a great place to spend time as a family and learn about animals. I have been to several zoos over the years, but this was one of our favorites. The animals are beautiful and the mission of the zoo to help the animals is awesome.
PS- While you are in Pittsburgh, make sure you check out the The Duquesne Incline.
Take a step back in time on a century-old cable car and see the best views of downtown Pittsburgh while riding one of the few remaining inclines in the country. Opened on May 20, 1877, the Duquesne Incline was rescued and restored by a group of local residents in 1963 and still delights residents and visitors with its original, elegant, wooden cable cars. Now you can visit the interior of the incline and watch the machinery while it operates. The Duquesne Incline’s upper station houses a museum of Pittsburgh history, including photos and a storehouse of information on inclines from around the world. Unusual Pittsburgh souvenirs, maps and photos can be found at the gift shop.
