A bonus stop for families with older kids would be to discover and tour the city with a nod to Andrew Carnegie, one of the Pittsburgh pioneers in the late 19th century. Although Carnegie was born in Scotland, he emigrated to Pittsburgh with his family at the age of 12. There, he made his fortune and left his mark on Pittsburgh by giving away a tremendous chunk of his wealth to help locals enjoy art, science, music, and literature.
All told, Carnegie’s philanthropic efforts totaled around $350 million (roughly $5.5 billion in today’s money) after he built, and eventually sold, Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Steel Company.
