5 State Parks Near Pittsburgh That Promise A Ton Of Winter Fun

Wintertime’s the perfect time to get outdoors and explore. Sure, we might prefer being outdoors during the warmer summer months, but there’s so much we can’t do during the summer that’s so much fun in the winter. We’re quite fortunate, in fact, to live within driving distance of numerous state parks near Pittsburgh that offer a full menu of wintertime activities and fun.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
