3 Pittsburgh Activities and Events That Can’t Be Missed
Pittsburgh’s weather may be a bit iffy in the winter, but summer heading into fall is sublime! These warm months of the year are the ideal times to check out some fun new activities and events that are happening throughout Pittsburgh. From whiling away your day down the river on a Tiki Bar to visiting Southside Works for a unique shopping and dining experience, Pittsburgh truly has something fun and exciting for every taste.
Tiki Bar on the River
What’s better than a swim-up bar? A Tiki bar boat, of course! This option for floating fun is available on all three of Pittsburgh’s rivers, bringing a little taste of Florida up north. Visitors will need to bring their own Mai Tais and snacks, but the relaxing experience is impossible to replicate. Each Tiki hut is suitable for up to 6 guests or can be linked together for larger parties. CruisinTikis.com has all the details for this fun and out-of-the-box two-hour cruise down one of Pittsburgh’s rivers. Who wouldn’t love the opportunity to wave at their friends from the comfort of a floating Tiki bar?
Promoted as a 52-acre block party, Station Square is an entertainment hub with shopping, dining, and adventure galore. You’ll find a pleasing mix of free events in Bessemer Court such as the Waltzing Waters Liquid Fireworks Show and a wide range of drinks to fuel your relaxing happy hour at the Grand Concourse. Formerly the central station for the P&LE Railroad, this complex includes more than a mile of options to keep your day (and night!) hopping.
From apparel and pet products to electronics and cooking supplies, SouthSide Works is a retail complex plus a whole lot of fun! The stunning setting in the heart of Pittsburgh features nearly a dozen restaurants plus live events and entertainment, a massive 10-screen digital theater, trails for walking and biking along Riverfront Park and more. The summer entertainment series in the town square will satisfy a range of tastes including jazz, big band, oldies and the blues. Each Friday throughout the summer, you’ll find a different live event for your viewing pleasure.
Sunning in your Tiki-inspired boat and shopping at SouthSide Works can work up a powerful appetite! When you’ve finished your daily excursions, head on down to V3 Pizza, where you’ll find the ultimate pizza experience. Creating your own flatbread pizza not only provides you with a delicious dish you’re sure to love but a fun time that you’ll want to share with friends and family.
