Christmas is one of the most anticipated holidays in Pittsburgh, and for good reason. Christmas in the Steel City is not a one-day event, it’s a celebration that starts well before December and ends well past the actual Christmas day; its and entire season of celebration. Our Pittsburgh Airport Service has therefore come up with a list of exciting events and activities scheduled to go down in Pittsburgh this festive season.
Before we proceed to the actual events, however, we would like to recommend employing the services of our Pittsburgh Events Service for all your transportation needs for the duration of the holiday season. Christmas is meant to be a time for family, a time to finally spend quality time and reconnect with those we love; this is a beautiful time of year. Unfortunately, since everyone is out and about trying to make the most of the holiday, traffic (both human and vehicle) tends to be significantly heavier than usual. You may therefore find yourself spending a huge chunk of your time navigating traffic in harsh weather conditions and trying to find parking spaces at every location you stop by.
Let our professionally trained chauffeurs take the wheel this season and simply focus on enjoying a luxurious, hassle-free ride to any destination of your choosing, revel in our luxury amenities, and truly focus all your energy and attention on your loved ones. Happy Holidays!!
The following are a few exciting events and activities scheduled for the Steel City this holiday season.
Visit the Cathedral of Learning
Since this is the Christmas season, and you are pretty familiar with your own holiday, why don’t you switch it up and learn about holidays in other cultures around the world. Head over to the Nationality Rooms at the Cathedral of Learning located along Fifth Avenue, open every day between 9am and 4pm. The museum has 29 rooms, each artistically decorated to depict a particular country’s traditions. The museum, however, still maintains light Christmas decorations including a Christmas tree, but it is still a great opportunity to intimately learn about other cultures without having to fly there. Log onto their website and schedule your visit for a guided tour in order to better understanding each culture.
Peoples Gas Holiday Market
This will be the 7th annual event of its kind and has been ongoing since the 16th of November; the event will only come to a close on the 23rd of December. Visit the Downtown Market Square and get firsthand experience of a European village, inspired by German Christkindlmarkts (Christmas Market). Here you will find vendors with unique items from all around the world. You will also have the opportunity to visit Santa’s House and have a Kodak moment with him for your holiday post card. There will also be numerous food vendors and chic restaurants in the vicinity in case you feel famished.
