Things to Do in Pittsburgh with Teens & Tweens

The older your kids get the harder it is to find things to do in Pittsburgh with them.  They’re less likely to want to the visit the museum or science center.  In fact, if your kid is anything like my 14-year-old son, it’s hard enough just keeping their attention.  But, if you’re a mom like me who still enjoys spending time with her big kid this list is for you .  It turns out there a ton of things to do in Pittsburgh no matter what their age is.  From biking at the Wheel Mill to experimenting at the Citizens Science Lab or learning to crochet at the Homewood Library, the list of things to do in Pittsburgh is vast.  Here’s a list of Pittsburgh activities for teens and older children.

Free Ride is a bicycle recycling and education facility focused on teaching the do-it-yourself approach to bicycle repair and maintenance. There is that old saying “if you give a person a fish they will eat for one day but if you teach them how to fish they will eat for a lifetime.” That is our basic philosophy at Free Ride.

The Wheel Mill Red Lantern Bike Shop

The Red Lantern Bike Shop is operated by Brian Sink and it receives donated broken and unused bikes.  The bikes are then refurbished and redistributed back into the community.  The Bike shop is open Saturday mornings from 11-12:30.
