  • Wonderful

    "My husband and I stayed here with our four year old daughter and black lab. The place was wonderful. Exactly what our family needed to enjoy the area. We hiked, biked, fished, and went to Idlewild. My daughter loved the bunk bed room. I highly recommend Winter Wonderland."

  • The perfect place for a weekend retreat!

    "The cottage was very clean and cozy. It was a short drive from Ohiopyle where there are so many wonderful activities. We enjoyed sitting by the campfire, grilling, and taking in the sights. It's a perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life."

Pittsburgh & Its Countryside Travel Tips

Visiting Pittsburgh, One of America’s Best Cities

Pittsburgh is regularly voted one of the best cities in the U.S. It was recently ranked 29th in the world’s best cities to live in. A vacation in Pittsburgh area condos will confirm that. It is easy to get to the area with its excellent International airport and two interstate highways, I-379 an I-579. There are also major roads throughout the city and surrounding area. The weather averages in the mid-80s Fahrenheit in summer, falling to the low-20s Fahrenheit in winter. It is the nation’s 13th largest city and largest inland port.

The area is a haven for those with a passion for snow. The skiing, snowmobiling, and variety of winter sports available keep visitors returning year on year but there is more to the area than just a winter wonderland.

There is More to Pittsburgh Than the Steelers

There is much to occupy visitors to the Pittsburgh area resorts around this charming city. Those looking to soak up some of the history of this area will want to see the Old Economy Village, a Christian communal society, dating from the 19th century. The Seldom Seen Mine gives visitors the opportunity to learn more about the working conditions of the local coal mines. One of the nation’s biggest tragedies in the 1800s was the flooding of Johnstown that wiped out an entire city. This is memorialized at the Johnstown Flood National Memorial. In memory of a more recent tragedy, the Memorial to those who died on flight 93 honors the crew and passengers who bought down the plane on September 11th, 2001. The memorial is maintained by local residents until a permanent memorial is built.

The Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Museum of Rural Life in Washington County is a National Historic Landmark. This 200-acre area includes a recreated 19th-century village. A section of US-40, the first federally funded road, runs past an array of historic sites like Fort Necessity, General Braddock’s Grave and includes some wonderful stagecoach stops. Fort Necessity commemorates the first battle in the career of one very famous American, George Washington. Visitors should not overlook a trip to Titusville to visit the first oil well in the U.S. The museum and park here include a full scale replica of the well, and the train tour gives a chance to learn more while seeing the sights. Kids will love the Trolley Museum and McConnell’s Mill State park provides great hiking in the gorge; it features a 1870s' style covered bridge as well as beautiful scenery, including waterfalls.

Pittsburgh for Outdoor Activites

The city of Pittsburgh is perfectly placed as a city vacation spot with plenty of outdoor action on your doorstep. Visitors should include a trip down the New River Gorge National River and visit the Allegheny National Forest with close to 520,000 acres of recreation land available for great activities and amazing scenery. While here, visit Allegheny Portage Railroad to find out how a canal boat can go over a mountain. Take time to see Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir, spanning the border between western Pennsylvania and New York. At the Lauren Caverns, visitors can tour the caves; try spelunking and rappelling at this 430-acre geological park. It’s Pennsylvania’s biggest cave!

Learn about the history of Railroaders at a museum in Altoona dedicated to the workers who helped shape America. At Altoona, visitors should also see the famous Horseshoe Curve, a marvel of engineering dating from 1854. For outdoor sports such as hiking, biking and whitewater rafting, visit Ohiopyle State Park.
