It annually draws more than 20,000 people to McKeesport's historic Renziehausen Park, which is home to many other attractions, including an extensive walking/fitness trail, a heritage museum and Pennsylvania's second-largest rose garden.
McKeesport's International Village is about 20 minutes driving time from Pittsburgh and less than one hour from most of Western Pennsylvania, easily reached via U.S. Route 30, Pennsylvania Route 48, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-376 (the Parkway East).
