Family Travel with Colleen Kelly – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Pittsburgh offers so much for families on vacation! Colleen, her daughters and niece start their adventure with a bird’s eye view of the city from the Duquesne Incline, where they play a fun bingo game identifying attractions all around the city. They explore a hometown favorite, Sr. John Heinz History Center, and also learn about the historic Omni William Penn Hotel. One of the culinary delicacies Pittsburgh is known for is pierogis! So Colleen and the girls get a pierogi-making lesson at Pierogi Plus, which is of course followed by a delicious tasting!

Hands-on learning is always a hit with kids! Families enjoy the many activities offered at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. One of the girls’ favorite activities is a meet and greet with flamingos at The National Aviary. They also take a class in glass firing at the Pittsburgh Glass Center and make one of-a-kind souvenirs. All in all, Colleen and the kids have a wonderful vacation experience in Pittsburgh!

It’s time to hit the road on a camping adventure! Colleen Kelly, her daughters and niece set off for their first ever RV trip to Pennsylvania. They set up camp at three different campgrounds, each offering unique amenities. Starting in Lancaster, they make their way past horses and buggies and stay at Spring Gulch RV Campground. While there, they make tie dyed shirts and explore the site, relaxing and enjoying ice cream treats. Their visit to Gettysburg Farm RV Campground offers hands-on activities with the farm animals. The girls especially love feeding the goats and making new friends with the other children at the campground.

Their visit to Hershey RV and Camping Resort comes complete with the sweet smell of chocolate lingering in the air as they drive into town!
