We're curious... 🤔 What do you love about living in Washington County, PA? 

We think Jaqueline and Carlos Cabral, the family behind 𝐕𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐱 𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐨𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞𝐬, answered this question perfectly: “𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙤 𝙢𝙪𝙘𝙝 [𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙮] 𝙤𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙨, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 [𝙞𝙩] 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡𝙨 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙡𝙞𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙗𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙘𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚. 𝙒𝙚 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙬𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙨𝙤 𝙘𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙡𝙤𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙛𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙠𝙨 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙘𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙢𝙤𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙣, 𝙪𝙧𝙗𝙖𝙣 𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙨, 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙚𝙨, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙚𝙨. 𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙗𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙡𝙞𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜.”

Some of their favorite local spots include (in addition to all of the local parks) Franco’s Trattoria, Benichopsticks Restaurant, Nagoya Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, and Fired Up Pottery Studio in McMurray!
