Known primarily for its steel-related heritage and 446 bridges, Pittsburgh sits at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, which meet to form the Ohio River.
Kids will enjoy Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium and Mill Creek Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Pittsburgh: Fallingwater (in Mill Run), Living Treasures Wild Animal Park (in New Castle) and Ohiopyle State Park (in Ohiopyle). Pack the 27th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Kennywood Park. There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, explore and take pictures at Heinz Field, see the interesting displays at Bicycle Heaven, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Aviary.

For maps, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Pittsburgh attractions planning website .

In December in Pittsburgh, expect temperatures between 42°F during the day and 30°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
