Discover the ‘Burgh Activities

rebecca - Thursday, March 16, 2017

Living in Pittsburgh has its perks – especially when it comes to planning out things to do in your free time. There’s never a dull moment or a lack of activities when you have three sports teams to follow (more if you count college sports!), three rivers for spring and summer boat rides or kayaking (okay we know there’s still snow on the ground, but we can hope!), and a cultural district with new plays and musicals erupting weekly.

Why You Should Love Where You Live

Park View Apartments, City View Apartments and Carson Street Commons are located in extremely walkable areas and within range of Pittsburgh’s public transportation system. As one of the first cities to have self-driving Ubers, Pittsburgh’s rideshare community also can help you get to the places you need to be. So, what’s going on in March? Check out some of our picks!

Cultural and Sporting Events Near Your Apartments

Pittsburgh’s David L. Lawrence Convention Center hosts a range of conventions. This weekend is the last weekend to enjoy the Home and Garden Show boasting “10 acres with everything for your home!” Get inspired to decorate your apartment.

If you’re sick of winter, check out the Spring Flower Show at Phipps Conservancy. Experience “colorful sights and whimsical delights” at the Enchanted-Forest themed show opening this Saturday, March 18th.  Find a favorite flower? Stop by a nursery or a garden center to pick up an arrangement to brighten up your apartment!

Looking for a free cultural event? Drive out to Boyce Park this weekend, located in Monroeville and Plum, to the Maple Sugar Festival. Learn pioneer, Native-American, and modern methods of maple sugaring. There will be demonstrations and sampling!

Flamingo Fest at the National Aviary is a perfect event for you and your family. Learn Flamingo moves and interact with these colorful birds this weekend, March 18-19th. Even better – Park View residents have less than a five-minute walk

Speaking of birds, don’t forget to keep up with the Pittsburgh Penguins! Follow their schedule and see when games will be played at PPG Paints Arena or away.

Thinking of prepping for your next big race and being sporty on your own? Learn about virtual 5K races where you chose the course and time and report finishing time to the Race Entry team.
