Just north of Pittsburgh sits a historic Gothic-Tudor mansion. The former dwelling now welcomes visitors from spring through fall. The mansion's ground, 639 acres of verdant greenery and buildings, has been turned into a county park that hosts equestrian events, charity polo matches, outdoor concerts and dinner theater. Tours are available of the house and the formal garden. Hartwood is best known for an extensive holiday light display every Christmas. Admission is USD5 for adults, USD3 for children 6-12 and USD1 for children under age 5.
This is a unique tour that includes the basement and the attic rooms. It is only held on father's day. Be sure to specifically ask for this tour at the time of your reservation as they also have the regular tours running that day.
Hartwood's great. In the winter, people flock to Hartwood Acres to see the Christmas lights. In the summer, there are free concerts. It's really cool that you're completely in the middle of nature, just 15 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
Hartwood Acres is several acres that is a wonderland of Christmas lights. It is enough to keep the kids entertained. You stay in your vehicle and drive through several miles of animated Christmas themed decorations. Some of these things are HUGE (when I say huge some displays are over 30 feet high). The deciduous trees are lighted and we were amazed and wondered how some of it was done. There are well over 2 million lights used. The money is used for the Salvation Army's project bundle up which buys cold weather clothing for kids and seniors that need it.
