Load up the RV and get the entire family ready, because it’s time for your next family vacation! Living in America means that you have everything from busy interstates to slow backroads; popular tourist destinations to hidden unknown gems; and enough history to help you view the country in an entirely new way.
Families that are looking for the perfect destination for their next RV trip should be sure to consider western Pennsylvania. Along with Pittsburgh as the main city, western Pennsylvania offers tons of sites to see, history to learn, and roads to explore. In fact, here are some of our favorite places that surely need to be on your list for visiting.
Point State Park
Located on 36 acres in downtown Pittsburgh, Point State Park is one of the most unique landmarks in all of America. This land was originally intended for eminent domain, and now the park that has been designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most historic in all of the state. The park is also home to two of the oldest remaining structures in the state: Fort Duquesne and Fort Pitt. If you are looking to show your family a deep part of American history while RVing through Pittsburgh, make your first stop at Point State Park.
While the name may be a bit misleading, Mount Washington also ranks among the top places to visit in western Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Though not technically a mountain, this area in Pittsburgh consists of a neighborhood, as well as a steep hill that overlooks Pittsburgh’s skyline – which just so happened to be ranked as the second-best skyline in America! This area of Pittsburgh is full of historic value, making it the perfect destination for your next road trip. And with plenty of moderate slopes on the hill up Mount Washington, it’ll be the perfect test for your RV’s power and capabilities.
Andy Warhol Museum
Those that love modern art will surely need to stop by the Andy Warhol Museum while in Pittsburgh. Warhol is known as one of the greatest modern artists of our generation and many of his historic works are on display here. You can also learn about Warhol’s unique childhood, as he was raised right here in Pittsburgh. Due to the fact that so many people visit the Warhol Museum each year, it also has parking that is specific to RV and motor homes. That means you won’t be driving around the city looking for the ideal parking space, but instead you can enjoy your time looking at pop art exhibits with your family.
Take In A Game
No matter what time of year you visit, there will always be great sporting events taking place in Pittsburgh. During the winter, head over to Heinz Field to watch the Steelers in action. Or if baseball is more your thing, the Pirates can be watched at PNC Park. Pittsburgh has a variety of different professional and semi-professional sports leagues and teams, making it easy for you to take in a game no matter what time of year it is.
If you are RVing through the eastern United States, then Pittsburgh certainly has to be on your list. As you can see from the choices here, there are plenty of things to choose from that the entire family will enjoy. And when you are behind the wheel, you’ll get to see more than you ever imagined before.
