Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
The layout of the Pittsburgh Zoo in general is great for families. Everything is stroller accessible and easy to navigate. Right off the bat, your family will feel like you are out exploring the African savannah and not in the center of Pittsburgh. Get up close and personal in the Elephant House or spend hours with the monkeys in the center of the Rainforest. The Polar Bear exhibit is usually number one on the list of attractions at the Pittsburgh Zoo. Families can either view the bears from atop the water or below the surface in an underwater viewing area. The entire zoo visit could be as short as two hours or as long as five hours depending on how long your family wants to spend.
