Whether you are a sports fan or you love to try new places to eat, Pittsburgh is the perfect place for a weekend getaway! Catch a pens game at PPG Paints Arena or take a trip down to the Strip District and dine at one of the many restaurants.  Pittsburgh has so much to do and history to see! While you’re here, try visiting the Andy Warhol Museum and then head to lunch at Smallman Galley, the first food hall in Pittsburgh! 


Seven Springs

If you are a thrill seeker you might want to check out Seven Springs for a weekend Ski Trip! Located only an hour from the city in Somerset, Seven Springs is the perfect place to explore, relax and get away for a few days.  If you enjoy skiing, the mountain features over 33 trails and terrain parks for you to enjoy. If you would rather relax indoors, the Trillium Spa is the perfect place to unwind for the day.  


Visit Chicago

Winter is a great time to check out Chicago – sure, it’s cold, but attractions are less crowded and hotel rates come way down.  Chicago Restaurant Week runs Jan. 27 through Feb. 9, with terrific deals at some of the city’s top establishments. Or visit during Chicago Theatre Week, Feb. 9-19, with bargains on dozens of live shows.
