Since I first moved to Pittsburgh in 2016, I didn't think I'd end up liking it. I am from a tiny town near the coast of NC, so Pittsburgh was vastly different than anything I'd experienced before. However, now that it's time to say goodbye I find myself taking a look down memory lane and reminiscing on all the time I've spent here. Besides being the city where I built my family, Pittsburgh has some pretty unique attractions that I'll definitely miss. Here is a small portion of the things I'll miss most about Da' Burgh.
It’s undeniable that a city surrounded by bridges and water has some of the best views. This view is just a few minutes walk from the Mount Washington location, and with the weather getting warmer I've been taking strolls through the Mount just enjoying this view while I have it.
From pickle pops to pickle beer you can get all things pickle related at this weekend long festival in the summer. I would be lying if I said this wasn't the first thing that came to mind while making this list. Picklesburgh was the first fest I ever went to in the city and it left a mark on my heart forever.
We have enjoyed exploring the many parks and playgrounds the city has to offer. From the more well-known and loved like Blue Slide playground to random city parks, Pittsburgh doesn't hold back on its love of nature.
Unique Museums and Places to Visit
A collective outdoor museum from the heart of Randy Gilson is the top of my favorite places in PGH. Randy himself is a ray of sunshine in the often gloomy city and his museum is the happiest place around.
The Mattress Factory is a contemporary art museum on the North Side. It’s an immersive and super fun exhibit. The Mattress Factory is like nothing I had seen before, and I feel lucky to have been able to visit.
