When my family moved back to Pittsburgh after living in NYC for 5 years, finding family fun in Pittsburgh was at the top of our priority list.

We love biking, exploring new parks, couples adventures and creating experiences in science and art for our children. Upon our return, Kidsburgh.org was just getting it’s wings as the cities go-to online resource focusing on the people and ideas that make Pittsburgh a great place to raise kids.

Over the years, we’ve developed some family traditions around Pittsburgh family-friendly activities, like running with our kids in the Junior Great Race and visiting Trax Farm to pick apples. We’ve also used Kidsburgh.org to fill in all the gaps.

Whether we’re looking for afterschool programs for our homeschooled sons or searching for ways to perk up a rainy day, Kidsburgh.org has become our go-to online platform to find family fun in Pittsburgh.

Here are a few ways you can use Kidsburgh.org to have just as much fun as your kids are having. A good friend once told me that the adventure is not just reserved for your kids, it’s for you too.

Kidsburgh’s Guides to Pittsburgh

Fall is in full swing and I like to say this is Pittsburgh’s favorite time of the year. There are tons of activities happening. Kidsburgh.org creates these guides for every season. Check out the fall guide here.

Fall RADical Days

One of the reasons that Pittsburgh is a great place to raise kids is the abundance of free and low cost activities that are always happening. Low-income individuals can get low-cost admission to local museums and every fall our city offers RADical Days. From mid-September to mid-October there are all kinds of free activities happening around the city. From the Pittsburgh Symphony to the new Museum Lab and the Kelly Strayhorn Theater, the entire city opens up as an oasis for kids and parents to have free play, literally.

Find out what other parents & caregivers are doing with kids

Ever wondered what everybody else is doing with their kids? Let Kidsburgh.org fill in the blank. The site publishes a regular column called “My Favorite Thing To Do with Kids”. The articles give Pittsburgh parents and caregivers a chance to showcase the family fun they are having in these Pittsburgh streets. Check out Christin Thorpe of the Ozzie & Me Foundation’s favorite things here.

There’s tons more where that came from. This fall expect to hear more about the new exhibit, Mummies of the World, at the Carnegie Science Center, ways that diversity is creating more opportunities for entrepreneurs and even more guides to Pittsburgh.
