An anniversary in Pittsburgh may include pampering downtown, sky scraping views of the Golden Triangle and outdoor adventures in between. No matter if you and your honey are celebrating your first month together or rejoicing in years of togetherness, Pittsburgh is home to several romantic attractions to commemorate your joyous occasion.

Pure Romance Pampering

Book a day of pampering at Spa Jema in downtown Pittsburgh, where you can choose from a choice of six spa packages to surprise your mate. For pleasure by chocolate, select the Molten Chocolate Spice service, where the two of you can be wrapped in chocolate mocha mud followed by a chocolate mousse facial. Make a day of it with the Red Hot Detox package; it features wraps, body polishes, manicures and pedicures, and a full massage with facials. This is an ideal option if you just want to spend some time together releasing some tension and stress; you may then retreat back home for a night in with a good movie and wine.

Dinner Uptown

If you’re looking to spend your meal with your mate and want to make your anniversary gift a sight for sore eyes, blind fold your other half and escort her to a window view at the LeMont Restaurant, where the two of you can enjoy a gourmet meal while viewing Pittsburgh’s skyline. With a view like this, it’s an optimal time to present an anniversary ring or informally renew relationship vows. Enjoy a city tour after your dinner.

Urban Adventures

If you and your sweetheart prefer the great outdoors, lace up your shoes and enjoy an afternoon of outdoor pursuits. The two of you can enjoy an urban adventure together, enjoying a cycling adventure; stop for beignets or chomp on a few fresh fruits at the farmer’s market. Take a walking tour of downtown Pittsburgh, where you can view art and architecture.
