Fun mother daughter activities in Pittsburgh

I have a conference in September and my daughter wants to come with me. My conference is on Friday so we will have the rest of the weekend to go and explore. What are some teen friendly activities in Pittsburgh that a 13 year old will enjoy?

    Hi, Liv! Your daughter will love Pittsburgh! The Carnegie Museum of Natural History in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh (http://www.carnegiemnh.org/) has one of the best dinosaur collections in the country! And, if your daughter is a budding artist, attached to the CMNH is the Carnegie Museum of Art. And on the North Shore, you'll find the Carnegie Science Center (http://www.carnegiesciencecenter.org/) which has tons of activities for kids of all ages, as well as a huge IMAX theater showing nature films. Don't forget to visit Phipps Conservatory (http://phipps.conservatory.org/) which is also in Oakland, within walking distance of the Carnegie. Then, visit the National Aviary at Pittsburgh (http://www.aviary.org/), which is a real treat! About an hour southeast of Pittsburgh, you'll be able to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, Fallingwater (http://fallingwater.org/) and not too far from Fallingwater, you'll find another Wright house, Kentuck Knob (http://kentuckknob.com/). Both of these houses are close to Ohiopyle State Park (http://www.laurelhighlands.org/outdoors/ohiopyle/), which is gorgeous. I've just mentioned a few highlights. I hope you and your daughter will enjoy Pittsburgh! Here is a link to a photographer who takes many pictures of Pittsburgh: http://davedicello.com/places/pittsburgh/ Enjoy!

    Try the Duquesne Incline, the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, and the National Aviary.

    The baseball stadium, PNC Park, is one of the most beautiful in the country. You might want to catch a Pirates' game if your teen 13-year-old is into sports.

    Primanti Brothers is the iconic Pittsburgh sandwich shop that you have to visit.

    I agree with all of the previously mentioned ideas and I think you both would like the "Just Ducky Tours" which is a land/amphibious craft that does a small tour of the city then a short ride in the river. Also check out the guided Segway tours of the city. Both of them can be found in the Station Square area!

    My daughter enjoys the Strip District which is 2 parallel blocks of food, little boutiques, artisans and galleries, and before you go watch the movie "a wedding for Bella" filmed there, then visit The Enrico Biscotti Co. the site of the film. Cool!
