It can be hard to jump into a new location without understanding the local customs and history. Pittsburgh, with its layers of seemingly impenetrable culture, is hardly an exception. But do not fret: Our occasional web series "New to the 'Burgh" is here to provide a handy guide for newcomers adapting to life in the Steel City.

President's Day Weekend Getaways

President’s Day weekend is upon us which means a three-day weekend for some. If you plan to get out of town, contributor Elaine Labalme who tweets about food and travel under the twitter handle New Girl In Town, is here with a few travel suggestions.

Elaine tells us about one of her favorite Pennsylvania getaways: The Nature Inn at Bald Eagle

“It’s right in the middle of Bald Eagle State Park on a beautiful lake. This is a twenty room inn. It's a sustainable property. It’s going to be a bit on the chilly side, but this place is just so snug and so cozy. The property is a play of wood and glass, lots of cozy seating areas, you can great games, read a book, [and] they do an amazing gourmet breakfast."

While you are there don't miss out on The Great Backyard Bird Count
