A Weekend in Pittsburgh

by Kimberly Krol

Jul 7, 2019

Last weekend my fiancé and I took a road trip to commemorate the start of summer. We opted to check out the other side of our state and visit Pittsburgh. For city center accommodations in the heart of it all, I recommend Fairmont Pittsburgh.

To start our Pittsburgh experience, we had lunch at Primanti Brothers, famous for topping sandwiches with coleslaw and French fries. Afterward, we grabbed pastries from another Pittsburgh staple, Prantl’s Bakery.

That afternoon, we strolled the Andy Warhol Museum before watching the Pirates take on the San Diego Padres at PNC Park. The night capped off with a spectacular fireworks display.

We didn’t forget relaxation! We started Saturday with massages at Fairmont Pittsburgh’s spa before a late breakfast and a 1 p.m. boat tour of Pittsburgh’s three rivers with Gateway Clippers.

Post-boat tour, we made our way to the Heinz History Center to learn a bit more about the city. After dinner at fl.2, we strolled Market Square’s night market.

Naturally, before heading out on Sunday, we had to sample the brunch menu at fl.2. Sadly, the weekend was over too quickly, but we both agreed we’d like to return to Pittsburgh again!

Incheon Airport Constantly Strives to Keep Up with the Changing Times

Incheon Airport, the largest airport in South Korea, opened in 2001, serving as a hub for Asiana Airlines, Air Seoul, Air Incheon and more. As the primary airport for Seoul Capital Area, it works hard to keep its spot as the main hub in the region. Going beyond aesthetic value, Incheon Airport is revolutionizing airports, challenging boundaries and pushing technological limits.

The Perfect Fit

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States. InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG) goes above and beyond to create opportunities for this segment with its IHG® Business Edge program, voted Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program in Global Traveler’s 2019 GT Tested Reader Survey awards.

Creating a Wellness Environment in the Workplace

Creating a wellness environment in the workplace is a terrific idea, and many companies acknowledge the benefits of providing health and wellness programs to employees. However, the concept is anything but new. More than a century ago, Johnson & Johnson offered its New Jersey-based employees access to an on-site health center and a fitness center with a swimming pool and basketball court. In the 1970s, the company followed with the launch of Live for Life, an on-site wellness program with “access to behavior modification tools and education on topics like nutrition, stress management and more.”
