Things to Do in Pittsburgh: Kennywood Park

It’s that time of year again! We are heading out to Pittsburgh for vacation. If you have followed me for any amount of time, you know that we visit the other side of the state several times a year. We started heading out every summer when Ethan was just an infant! And we have continued the tradition ever since. It’s a great time for the kids to visit with their great-grandparents. I want them to cherish every moment with them!

Of course, we plan a TON of fun things for us to do during out week out there. And this year is no different. As soon as we told Ethan we were going to visit and Granny and Poppa soon, he started talking about one thing.

He has been going on and on about riding the Jackrabbit and has asked us to measure him almost every day to see if he’s 48 inches yet so he can ride even more rides. Good news! He is!

His other favorites?

The Pittsburg* Plunge! Last year, I totally forgot to bring a change of clothes for everyone but I will not be making that mistake this time.

There has also been talks between him and his dad about riding the Phantom’s Revenge. I don’t know how I feel about that one so I’m gonna have to make sure I don’t watch!

What can I say? He’s my dare devil and loves his roller coasters. Ben and I? You’ll find us at the Olde Kennywood Railroad. That’s more our speed!

About Kennywood

Kennywood is one of the oldest and most beloved amusement parks in America. Founded in 1898, it has thrilled and delighted both young and young-at-heart visitors for more than 110 years. From the early days of the carousel, through the development of the first roller coasters, to the technological advancements in today’s steel looping coasters, Kennywood has always been the park that puts a smile on everyone’s face. Designated a National Historic Landmark since 1987, you’ll find “Lost Kennywood,” a replica of turn-of-the-century architecture that houses some of the park’s most popular rides, as well as attractions that go from mild to wild throughout the park. Refuel at more than a dozen dining areas offering tasty treats that can’t be found at any other amusement park anywhere. Kennywood is a unique experience and remains one of “America’s Finest Traditional Amusement Parks.” In fact, it’s what memories are made of!
