 Itinerary
Day 1  Depart for Pennsylvania
Excitement is high today as you depart Illinois for Pennsylvania and a three-game stand featuring your Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Day 2  Duquesne Incline, Gateway Clipper and Ball Game
This morning a local guide joins you for a guided tour of “Steel City,” Pittsburgh. At the Duquesne Incline take a ride on one of few remaining inclines in the country. Originally opened in 1877, the incline was restored in 1963 and offers visits to the interior to watch the working machinery. Take to the water with Gateway Clipper on their classic cruise which sails all three of Pittsburgh’s rivers, the Allegheny, Monongahela and the Ohio. See the city’s landmarks, buildings, bridges and lush gardens as the Captain shares historic stories about life in Steel City. A treat for all ages is Bicycle Heaven, the world’s largest bicycle museum with over 6,000 bicycles in their collection. See Pee Wee Herman’s bicycle from the movie as well as a “fleet” of rare “Bowden Spacelanders,” made of fiberglass. Tonight, settle into your reserved seats at beautiful PNC Park to see your Chicago Cubs take on the Pittsburgh Pirates, the first of three included games. (Breakfast and dinner)
Day 3  Trolley Museum, Cathedral of Learning and Another Ball Gam
Begin the day at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum which includes an orientation video, exhibits and even a ride on an antique trolley. Also see the collection of trolleys in the museum. At the University of Pittsburgh, you will tour the Nationality Rooms at the University’s Cathedral of Learning. These rooms were designed to represent the culture of various ethnic groups that settled in Allegheny County. Experience their ethnic identity and ancestral roots in rooms which are also used as University classrooms. You will also visit the Heinz Memorial Chapel, a nondenominational chapel given the H.J. Heinz family to the University of Pittsburgh. After dinner, return to PNC Park for another exciting ball game featuring your Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates. (Breakfast and dinner)
Day 4  Birds, Cars and Final Game with Fireworks
Begin the day at the National Aviary for their “Amazing Amazon Bird Show.” Located in Pittsburgh, this is the only independent indoor non-profit aviary in the United States. It is also the country's largest aviary, and the only one accorded honorary "National" status by the United States Congress. Enjoy an included lunch while an Aviary trainer introduces you to 3 different live bird species. At the Frick Car and Carriage Museum, see the collection of historic carriages and automobiles dating back to the turn of the 20th century.
