10 Ideas for Family Fun on Valentine’s Day Pittsburgh

If you’re lucky enough to slip away for an adults-only romantic, candlelit dinner for two on Valentines Day then ENJOY IT. However, if you’re like many of the other parents around the Pittsburgh area (us included), we’ll be traveling as a family unit. We’re thinking this can be just as fun and honestly, probably wouldn’t want it any other way. Need some ideas for family fun on Valentine’s Day in Pittsburgh? Check out our contenders.

1. Let’s Break the Ice

Ice Skating / Roller Skating

Spend the night skating around and sipping hot chocolate. Or, if the recent polar vortex stint has made you cold and bitter, move the activities indoor with roller skating.

2. I Love Hue

Paint Your Own Pottery

If you’ve never painted your own pottery, you have to try it. It’s wonderful for all ages (I first took my son when he was two years old). When you go you’ll be able to pick out the piece of pottery you’d like to paint, pick your colors to paint with and sit down at a table together to design away. Or, maybe it’s something you’d like to paint together!

See a Movie/Show

There are some great movies out in theaters right now. Might I suggest the LEGO Movie? Or if you’re looking for a more unique experience, how about a 40 foot dome theater? Or maybe try something a little more lively with an onstage production.
