Fun Events in Pittsburgh this Summer!

Summer in Pittsburgh is all about the outdoors. Pittsburgh’s summers are just beautiful with temps in the 80s and there is actually SUN (told you it is not always partly cloudy)! Of course, we experience the “dog days of summer” just like the rest of the U.S.A., but there is always a breeze, especially along the Three Rivers.  Pittsburgh and her surrounding neighborhoods provide great outdoor activities for the young and old.  Fun summertime things to do in Pittsburgh include many festivals, special holiday events, sporting events, live music and concerts, dog parks and of course cruising the Three Rivers aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet!

It is the opportunity to carry on a legacy that began over 60 years ago. I never planned on following in the footsteps of my great-grandfather or father.  However, as I got older, I realized what a unique opportunity it was to work at the Gateway Clipper. The fleet boat…
