Top 5 / August 11 - 16

Looking for something to do in Pittsburgh?
Here's my Top 5 list for the week of family-friendly venues that are open throughout the week!

Park of the Week: Dormont Playground - a great castle structure that has lots of fun features for kids!  It is also surrounded by beautiful grassy areas and sits around the corner from the great Dormont Pool. Best address to use is 1694 Dormont Ave., Pittsburgh, PA.
Sweet Treats: Klavon's Ice Cream Parlor is an authentic antique 1920's Ice Cream Parlor located in the Strip District.  A destination everyone should check out! Try delicious hand-dipped ice cream cones, old-fashioned sodas or find your favorite in their complete line of old-fashioned candy.
