I am looking for a Saturday to kill in Pittsburgh in late february or march and I was wondering, Pittsburgh-natives, what are some activities I can do as a teenager to enjoy myself in the Pittsburgh area. Are there any cool traditions that go on in Pittsburgh during March? Thanks
The most important thing to do is try to AVOID the smog & pollution. It is unbelievable how much crap is spewed into the air here, it is so dense that it travels all the way to the Eastern States and kills and destroys much of their forests and habitat. Acid rain has been a problem there for years but now it is known that most all freshwater fish from natural streams in the Northeast USA are polluted from mercury, so much so that kids and women shouldn’t eat any of it and it is suggested that healthy adult males avoid it as well.
YES, it comes from the plants in the Pittsburgh area pumping their putrid black smoke into our atmosphere.
Additionally, Pittsburgh drinking water supplies have been contaminated with benzene, toluene, vinyl chloride and 22 other chemicals reportedly leached from Dow Chemical plants here. Pittsburg is a TOXIC HOTSPOT! Just type ‘Pittsburg pollution’ or similar in your browser and see what crops up, it truly is amazing.
Good luck and try to stay healthy
