Ten “Must Do” Summer Family Activities

  • Biking – You can cycle the city or wooded trails. For some suggestions, visit our articles Pittsburgh on Two Wheels and The Great Allegheny Passage.
  • Swimming – Swimming is a great bonding experience. It doesn’t get any better than cooling off in a local pool. If lakes are more your style, you don’t have to venture too far to find one.Seasons_Summer
  • Golf – Though golf can be a frustrating game when the game is not going your way, the consolation is that it gets you out and exercising in idyllic settings. It is also a great inter-generational sport as youngsters can do it was well as seniors.
  • Visit an Amusement Park – Some places don’t have any amusement parks in their area. If you are in Pittsburgh, several great amusement parks are just a short drive away.
  • Enjoy a Free Concert – The city and county offer free concerts at various sites throughout the summer. In addition, many of the festivals in town have live musical entertainment.
  • Geocaching – An outing that combines fun as well as skill is a winning combination. You will also get some exercising while tracking down treasure.
