Spring officially starts today at 12:57PM.
Lousy Smarch is almost over. It’s been a long winter.
Ten (Mostly Pittsburgh) Things I’m Going to Do Before It’s Cold Again
Every single year I say I’m going. I think this is the year!
Two words: Zipline safari!
Carnegie Science Center 21+ Night
There is a city of Pittsburgh swimming pool right behind my library, CLP- South Side! I’m also a fan of the county wave pools, the Dormont Pool, and Sandcastle. Plus, there is a secret river spot I take a dip in a few times a year.
Did you know there is a farm in Baldwin? Did you know that it’s run by a librarian? I have no idea how that could be more awesome. Oh wait! Add a farm tour and multi-course dinner prepared by a local chef. Awesome-er.
Not that I don’t love riding to places like Connellsville and Boston on the Great Allegheny Passage, but it’s time to mix it up. Starting in Carnegie, this trail travels almost 30 miles to Weirton, West Virginia. Impress your friends, tell them you rode your bike to another state.
Bands, craft beer, boats. Sold.
Some other plans include going to the movies on Flagstaff Hill, exploring Frick and Schenley Parks on my bike and going kayaking on the Allegheny River. We’re going to need a longer summer.
What special Pittsburgh (or non-Pittsburgh) activity is a “must” for you? Because I’m game for anything!

Visiting Lake Erie for my Great Lakes’ fix!
Thanks for the stroll down memory lane, particularly with the mention of the city pools. I remember using my pool pass “dog tag” to get into some of the pools. The one on the South Side — isn’t that an indoor pool?
My favorite Pittsburgh summertime activity is strolling up and down Murray and Forbes Avenues in the evening after the hot summer sun has sunk low in the sky…. Memories!
Butler-Freeport Trail and Montour Trails are nice. I hope to increase my bike ‘stamina’ this year…Todd Sanctuary for some hiking time…and all the FREE music concerts–Hartwood, Three Rivers, Frick, Mt. Lebanon, YEP…we’re so lucky that most are still free!
I guess I missed my chance to do anything before it got cold again. Down to the 20s this weekend…
I’m so excited for Spring! And then for Summer!
Spring is freedom! :=)
