Can you believe it? The holidays are almost upon us. If you’re wondering what to do with your family this year, we put together seven suggestions perfect for celebrating all things sparkly and magical this season.

1. Light Up Night

2. Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker

From December 1st through the 27th, enjoy one of Pittsburgh’s longstanding holiday traditions. See all your favorite iconic characters like the Sugar Plum Fairy, Rat King and more.

3. Phipps’ Conservatory’s Winter Flower Show & Light Garden: Holiday Magic

This year’s theme is “Holiday Magic!” and you’ll certainly feel like it stepping into Phipps’ winter wonderland. A new garden railroad will be on display as well as special lighting in the sunken garden. Don’t forget to bundle up the whole family, buy some hot chocolates and wander around outside at the light garden too.

4. Ice skating at PPG Place

Take everyone out for an afternoon of ice skating fun at PPG Place. Your older children will love the Instagram-worthy photos in front of the massive Christmas tree in the center of the rink.
