Fall flavors in Pittsburgh

The moment everyone in Pittsburgh has waited for is finally here – Fall! The Steelers are back on the field, the leaves are beginning to fall and children are back in school. The fall season brings with it many fun seasonal treats and activities to enjoy and Pittsburgh has them all. Whether you’re looking for a date night or a fun night out with the whole family, head to the city for a variety of fall-themed events.

Fall flavors: One of the best things about fall is hot apple cider and pumpkin-spiced everything! Take an evening to find the best apple-flavored cider, visit several breweries to find your favorite pumpkin beer or Oktoberfest, or find the best pumpkin pie in the city. Once you find your favorite beverage or pie, you now have a go-to spot to take your friends all season long.

Costume head start: Do you want to get a jump on creating the perfect Halloween costume? Head to the thrift store Friday night for an evening that’s bound to be full of laughter! With ample time to prepare you can find all the pieces, you need to create that one-of-a-kind costume that’ll be sure to win every costume contest. If you’re using this as a date night, pick out each other’s clothes and then wear them out to dinner!

Hiking: There’s nothing like enjoying a free fall activity! Take a few hours to look at all the leaves that are changing by going on a walk or a hike around the city. From Frick Park to the riverfront trail, there are plenty of beautiful options to enjoy the scenery and breathe that fresh fall air.

Cinema: If you love getting scared around fall, you’ll love all the Halloween and other spooky things the city has to offer. Catch all the scary films you want at the Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville during the month of October. You also don’t want to miss Pittsburgh’s 10 Annual Zombieball at Mr. Smalls in Millvale on October 7.
