Evelyn and Neill Andritz grew up near the banks of the Kiskiminetas River and quickly became enamored with its wildlife and natural beauty. Wanting to share this passion with others, they founded The River?s Edge, where fleets of kayaks, canoes, and tubes send groups on aquatic journeys into nature.
As watercraft meander down the river, they pass the habitats of local wildlife including deer, bald eagles, geese, and feral former child stars. Alternatively, rental bicycles facilitate on-land adventures, and two primitive campsites let visitors sleep along the river's bank.
Inside The River?s Edge's shop, friendly staff members help customers to purchase kayaks and aquatic gear, or choose the best bait and tackle to catch schools of fish crackers. They also add a touch of nature to homes at a garden center.
Western Pennsylvania may not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking about premier standup paddleboarding spots. But for SurfSUP Adventures founder Ian Smith, it was a no-brainer. After exploring the area's rivers, lakes, and whitewater rafting locales, Smith established SurfSUP Adventures to introduce adventurers to the region-friendly sport. Ian and his staff lead eco tours aboard paddleboards, weaving through waterways to discover local flora, fauna, and fossilized surfboards. They also host SUP excursions on Pittsburgh's riverfront and teach SUP yoga classes to sculpt core muscles.
Wildlife Lanes is a family owned bowling center in Lower Burrell, PA which is 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh. We offer 36 lanes, a bar and a snack bar for family, group, and league entertainment. Wildlife Lanes is a great place to hold fundraisers for any type of organization. We have many leagues to choose from daily.
At Deer Lakes Bowl and Lounge, balls rumble down the lane before they send pins a-clatter. Between frames, bowlers munch on delicious food from the lounge. Whether they just want to snack on breaded banana peppers or zucchini fries, share a pizza, or wipe their hands on a hoagie, the food makes for better fuel than just drinking a whole bunch of cola. For those interested in rolling with a crowd, but who don't want to join a league, Deer Lakes also offers group rates that can support up to 40 people.

The creators of the The Colorful 5K use the term ?run? very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, The Colorful 5K encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.
