Forget about blowing all that cash on a trip to the shore or a condo in Miami. Pittsburgh was voted a top Staycation destination and with the way this summer is turning out, there’s no question about it.
Thinking about a trip to L.A.? If you don’t like the playful judgement or cougars here in the ‘Burgh, then you better not try to make friends in Hollywood. The stars are coming here anyway–Jake Gyllenhaal is shooting a boxing movie here this month. His dinner meeting with Rachel McAdams this week at Meat & Potatoes shows our dining here in Pittsburgh is hip enough for the stars. If reality TV is more your thing, this city’s got that too! Freedom Farms filmed their reality show at the Bloomfield Saturday Market this weekend.
Three Rivers Arts Festival is underway. Don’t miss the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra‘s performance on Monday the 9th, it’s gonna be awesome! Oh, and by the way, if it rains, you’ll get to see the FREE performance inside Heinz Hall! Sandcastle will be open full time starting June 7th, and there’s always Kennywood and Seven Springs if you’re looking for a thrill.
