Pittsburgh at Christmas, Redux

Jump to last reply

Each Christmas my gift to my nieces and nephews (and their parents) is an experience rather than stuff. We've been in Cape May, the Poconos, Philadelphia, and the Outer Banks, but this year we're somewhat repeating what we did three years ago and spending some time in Pittsburgh, December 26 to 29th. (It's easy for most of them to get to--they live in Hollidaysburg--and the older kids can work it around their schedules a bit better than a week in the OBX or Poconos.)

Last time (chronicled here: http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/unwrapping-pittsburgh-a-little-christmassy-journey.cfm ) we stayed at the lovely Omni William Penn Hotel in the city and went to the Duquesne Incline, Heinz History Museum, and the Cathedral of Learning Christmas rooms as our "main events." This time we're staying at the Hyatt Place that calls itself airport, but is actually right by the Robinson Mall. (Indoor pool, free breakfast, and free parking: all Good Things with a family this size.)

So for visiting places, I was thinking of perhaps the Aviary? We have a quite mixed group, 17 kids from 1 to 24, and I might be able to get group rates (there are 22 of us altogether.)
I also was looking at the Children's Museum, but wasn't sure what age group that really appealed to. (The older ones, of course, can go off on their own at that point, but we do have a the 1-14 range left then.) I'd like to get to the Ft. Pitt blockhouse, but don't know if that is feasible in the winter.

I'd love to hear your suggestions and opinions!
