Broadway plays can cost an arm an a leg, especially if you’re planning on taking the entire family. While the traveling versions are more cost-effective, the cost can still rack up.

Thankfully, in line with the Hamilton Lottery on Broadway, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has just released word of a WICKED lottery. Giving a budget-friendly option, tickets are only $25 a piece. Here’s the scoop on affordable WICKED in Pittsburgh lottery tickets.

Dapper Day at Disney World is a fun opportunity to dress in your finest and stroll around the parks. Last year’s two-day event was received so well that every year is bound to get bigger and better than the last. Last year was also the first time my family and I had the pleasure of partaking in the merriment. So, what is Dapper Day, how can you take part in the park fun, and what does it cost? Here’s how to do Dapper Day at Disney World and what you can expect.

This is the second year we’ve had the pleasure of taste-testing Braddock’s Pittsburgh New Year’s Eve menu. From the start to decadent finish, the prix fixe menu was filled with creative culinary endeavors and classics. But what about the plating? Always a sucker for good plating, it didn’t disappoint, either. Here’s our take on five tasty courses that rang in 2018.

Even though I live near Pittsburgh, PA, my family and I still have Walt Disney World Annual Passes. And, while it may not make sense why we’d invest in the passes for twice a year visits, we find that the discounts definitely outweigh the costs. Is a 2018 Disney World Annual Pass worth it? Here’s this year’s discounts and perks to help you narrow down your decision.

I’ve written several times about how utterly amazing Omni Bedford Springs Resort is. I’ve talked about how it’s one of our fave places on this side of the country, how it’s perfect for both families and couples, and even how amazing the food is. But, we’ve never had a chance to celebrate our anniversary there – until now. It was an obvious choice for this time of year compliments of its traditional holiday decorations and decked out halls – literally. So, in honor of our 11th wedding anniversary, we hit the road to visit Bedford, PA. Here’s ways to have a traditional Christmas at Omni Bedford Springs Resort!

Finding an excuse to visit National Aviary is easy for me and my family. We look for excuses like, “it’s raining”, or “it’s a Tuesday”. Honestly, we don’t need an excuse to visit – the birds and other animals are all we need (did I mention they have TWO sloths?). But, when new animal encounter opportunities arise, it’s straight to Pittsburgh‘s North Shore we head! Earlier this week, we had the pleasure of hanging out with a nine-month old armadillo and it was cuteness overload. Here’s the scoop on the National Aviary Armadillo Encounter and why you should give it a go.

We’ve recently visited an Extended Stay America property in Orlando and, truthfully, I was surprised. I was surprised at its billion dollar upgrades to properties across the country. Surprised at the spacious rooms and comfy beds. And definitely surprised at the affordability of reserving a night or two. To sweeten the deal, ESA has a new deal for Santa and his reindeer. Here’s the scoop on the Extended Stay America pets stay free deal this holiday season.
