With the beautiful weather arriving, May is widely recognized as one of the best months to sell your home, and in our opinion, it’s one of the best times of the year to move to Pittsburgh! Check out just a few of the reasons our beautiful city will have you wanting to make your move ASAP.
If you’re the outdoorsy type, get ready to embrace what Pittsburgh has to offer. Allegheny County boasts nine county parks with over 12,000 acres just begging to be explored and hiked. From Round Hill Park’s farm with numerous animals, a wave pool at South Park, and an incredible estate tour at Hartwood Acres, there truly is something for everyone within these parks.
Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens
And don’t let weather stop you from enjoying nature in Pittsburgh; even on rainy days you can immerse yourself in all of Mother Nature’s splendor at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. With numerous themed rooms (Desert, Tropical Forest, and Orchid, just to name a few) and ever-changing seasonal shows, Phipps is a gem of Pittsburgh and a one of a kind experience.

Even though we’re considered a big city, one of the best ways to experience Pittsburgh is on a bike! Pittsburgh’s bike sharing program, Healthy Ride Bikes, allows you to explore on your own time and provides over 100 stations throughout the city to pick up and return. If a more structured bike tour is your speed, Bike the Burgh Tours provides a variety of options you’ll love. According to their website, whether you’re new to the area or have been around the Burgh for a while, you’ll learn incredible details about this historic city as you pedal through. Try the food and drink tour, which stops by numerous breweries, or the bridges in the Burgh tour if architecture is more your thing. Visit biketheburgh.com for more information.
Point State Park
Located downtown at the tip of what’s known as the Golden Triangle (where the three local rivers meet), Point State Park is the perfect summer gathering place. Relax by the 150 foot fountain, catch a concert or an art festival, or walk the riverview trails. This is the spot to be for that community feeling in the heart of a bustling city.
