There is nothing quite as romantic as taking a quiet stroll through the beautiful gardens at Phipps Conservatory.

A teamwork activity, such as Escape Room Pittsburgh, is a great way to become closer as a couple, and it's also a very fun activity to do with a group of couples. You can choose from Mad Scientist or Prison escape scenarios where you are "trapped" in a room and must work with clues to figure out how to escape. Don't worry, the game ends after an hour, even if you haven't figured out the escape, and you are sure to have fun getting to know each other better.
