For Christmas & Winter break, I decided to visit my sister and booked a flight to Pittsburgh, USA. Pittsburgh is definitely not the biggest city in the US, however, it’s very calm, and if you’re there visiting family for winter holidays, it’s quite cosy and a lot of fun. 🙂
As I said previously, I travelled to Pittsburgh, so I can spend Christmas and some of the winter break with my sister. It was such a long trip, because in December, there are no direct flights from Europe, so I had two layovers and had to change three airplanes. OMG. It was exhausting. BUT I MADE IT! And the journey as a whole was actually so much fun, especially when travelling alone, and having the ability to be more independent.
What to do in Pittsburgh, PA?
There is a lot of things to do in Pittsburgh, however I only spent a week there, and I couldn’t possibly to everything. Here are some of the places you might consider going to if you’re ever in Pittsburgh:
Mount Washington (Pittsburgh)
If you wish to take some amazing, pro photos, then you need to go up to Mount Washington. It is a hill, and you get to it by crossing the bridge over Monongahela River from Downtown. It doesn’t take long to get there, and the view is amazing. I went up there on an extremely cloudy day, so my photos look very dark, grey and gloomy. If you’re here on a sunny day, or in the summertime, your photos will probably be much much better. 😀
Ross Park Mall
This is a veeeery big shopping centre, a bit outside Pittsburgh. It has a Macy’s store, a Nordstrom and many shops including Bath & Body Works, Banana Republic, American Eagle, etc.
Gaucho Parilla Argentina
Yes we are in the US, not Argentina itself, but the food here is AMAZING. Still had leftovers of it at home because the portions are huge, but it tastes so so good.
This is the most exciting and urban-like place to visit during Christmas. There is an ice-skating rink, a very tall Christmas Tree and many different food stands where you can get a hot drink and some pastries. I would definitely recommend visiting, as it puts you in a real christmassy mood, especially in the evening when you’re surrounded by Christmas lights.
Well, this is all about my week in Pittsburgh, PA! I hope you enjoyed reading the post, make sure to give it a like, and comment if you have any questions, or would like to add information about Pittsburgh which I haven’t mentioned!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you all the best in the New Year. Let’s go, 2019!
