Pennsylvania Attractions

Fort Pitt Museum

Officially incorporated as a city in 1794, Pittsburgh is one of the largest and most diverse cities in Pennsylvania, and its history is just as broad and eclectic. Make your way in from Grove City or Bentleyville and explore the gem of western Pennsylvania.

Plan for a fun afternoon with the kids when you visit Hartwood Acres Park. Nearly 630 acres of pristine woodland set just north of downtown Pittsburgh, the Hartwood Acres Park was established in 1969, features the Tudor Mansion, and has 30 miles of trails perfect for a relaxing hike, or a thrilling mountain bike ride.

There are guided tours of the Tudor Mansion, built in 1929, stables of horses for those looking to trot around on horseback, and the Middle Road Concert Area, where you’ll find live performances throughout the year.

Head to the Fort Pitt Museum & Block House, where you and the kids will discover a little about the role western Pennsylvania played during some of the most historic and iconic U.S. moments – from the French & Indian War, to the American Revolution. Opened in 1969, Fort Pitt offers museum tours, where children 3 and under gain free admittance. Popular among history buffs and locals alike, many visitors travel from as far north as Saint Marys, and Dubois.

Don't miss another famed site, the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh. A 42-story, 1926 structure known as the World's Tallest Schoolhouse, "Cathy" is known for its architecture and the 29-stop Nationality Rooms Tour.

Continue your exploration of Pittsburgh’s historical sites when you tour the Andy Warhol Museum. Warhol, one of the most decorated and prized American artists, was born in Pittsburgh – the museum is an homage to the hometown hero, seeking to give guests a “creative interaction with the art and life of Andy Warhol.”

And if you'd like to see the whole city at once, hop on the historic Duquesne Incline on Mt. Washington.
