The Polamalu Family’s Top 10 Favorite Places in Pittsburgh

1 / Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

“On a cold day, the best way to escape the freeze is to pop into Phipps, get warm, and breathe in the fresh, beautiful, floral air.”

2 / Carnegie Museum of Natural History

“We have two boys, so dinosaurs and insects are always fun to explore.”

3 / Carnegie Science Center

“Every floor has something engaging for children and adults.”

4 / Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

“Our boys can paint, climb through mazes, and get wet — it’s a win all around.”

5 / Clifford’s Restaurant

“Our family loves going to Clifford’s Restaurant to get the best home-away-from-home meal and serene atmosphere. It’s family owned and incredibly charming. Chef Jesse prepares the most delicious meals using only the freshest ingredients from their farm.”

6 / Pittsburgh’s Movie Theaters

“We go to the movies a lot! There is a variety of great new cinemas that have opened in the last few years, and we like to try them all out.”

7 / Soergel Orchards

“They have great produce in their grocery store, especially during the fall, and the best pumpkins in the city!”

8 / Pittsburgh’s Parks

“Pittsburgh is the city of parks. Our boys love every one, from Schenley to Pine. All of the parks that we frequent are clean and full of great ways to burn some energy.”

9 / The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium

“We love the Pittsburgh Zoo!”

10 / Pirate, Penguin, and Steeler Games

“We love attending all of the sporting events in the city. There is no other city that has such great community support for its teams and that makes for an enjoyable family experience.”
