Best Things to See and Do in Pittsburgh, PA

by zuriga

I'll be going to a wedding in Pittsburgh next month. Any tips for the things I shouldn't miss seeing. I won't have a lot of time (and did grow up in PA), but I've never been to Pittsburgh.

If you don't do anything else, take one of the inclines up the hill and walk in the area overlooking the rivers and where they meet. I have not posted these pictures but here's a web site: http://incline.pghfree.net/

A fun activity with a great view.

Some other things

by PR-7

I'll agree that the most uniquely enjoyable part of Pittsburgh is the views of the city from atop the bluffs just across the river. Some other things I've liked, depending on your tastes:

1) Carnegie Institute (art and natural history museum)
2) Point Park (history and views)
3) National Aviary
4) Cathedral of Learning, Univ of Pittsburgh
5) Frick Museum of Art (not terribly much there, but it IS free)
6) Zoo

I'm not a fan of Andy Warhol, so I can't comment on his museum here -- but it's probably the largest collection of his work anywhere.

In addition to some of the ideas already mentioned, I always enjoy strolling through the market area of the Strip District, and I like the unique shops and restaurants on the South Side. Some of the best things about Pittsburgh are the diverse neighborhoods located all around downtown.

Oh yeah, if you like baseball, go see a Pirates game at one of the best stadiums in baseball, and if you are there around the 4th of July the Three Rivers Regatta is pretty good.

To add to those great suggestions above, I also recommend doing a Ducky tour of Pittsburgh. You go around the city in a vehicle that can travel on land and on the rivers while learning really neat facts and some of the history of the city. We recommended it to our guests that came for our wedding, and they really enjoyed it. They especially liked the humor and personality of the tour guides. http://www.justduckytours.com/

Definitely take the Incline up to the top of Mount Washington for one of the great city views in the USA. If you have a rental car, go over to the Oakland section of the city, where you have some good sightseeing. Visit the Cathedral of Learning (the most unique university building in the US), Phipps Conservatory (beautiful indoor gardens), and the Carnegie museums (combined art and natural history museums, with the best dinosaur collection in the US as well as some pretty good art). Feel free to visit our Pittsburgh pages for further details and info.

Thanks everyone... sounds like I'll be busy. That Ducky Tour sounds very interesting!

Travel Tips for Pittsburgh

Union Station (AKA Penn Station)

by Ewingjr98

Built from 1898 to 1903, Pittsburgh's Union Station connected the Pennsylvania Railroad to several regional lines such as the Pennsylvania and Steubenville Railroad, the Pennsylvania and Charleston Railroad, the Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroad, Western Pennsylvania Railroad, and the Allegheny Valley Railroad.

This is the fourth Union Station constructed in Pittsburgh. The first, built in 1854, was located at the intersection of Grant St and 7th Avenue, just a block from the present site. The second Union Station was located along Liberty Avenue at the site of the present station; built in 1865, it was destroyed by the riots of 1877. The third Union Station was constructed on the same site, but only lasted until the present structure was built from 1898 to 1903. In 1912, the station was renamed Penn Station to match names of the other stations on the Pennsylvania Railroad.

The present Union/Penn Station consists of a great rotunda with four arched pillars in front of the station; this was the passenger waiting area. The station itself is topped with a tall building that was originally a hotel. The brownish-red exterior is actually terra cotta.

In the 1980s the station was restored, with the old hotel becoming an exclusive apartment building. The railroad station is still in use by Amtrak trains and regional buses.

You can't buy beer with the hamburger meat

by Pounder73

Buying beer and alcohol can be a little tricky in PA. Outside of bars and restaurants, you have limited options where you purchase your drink of choice. For the strong stuff that puts hair on your palms, or was it somewhere else?, you need to buy it at State Stores. This is also where you procure your wine.

For your beer, you have to buy it at distributors, and only in cases. Luckily, it is usually set up like a drive through; dive up, pop the trunk, pay and leave. You can buy six packs from bars, but at very inflated prices.

You can’t buy any alcohol in grocery stores or 7/11’s (and maybe not on Sundays either)

An Extreme Sports Club is founded in Pittsburgh

by jwander

The D4DR Club is a social club like no other.

Geared at those individuals that are willing to go on vacation to that far flung, war torn country or the guy who is wiling to risk his life by bungee jumping inside a cave....

They come from all walks of life. Men and women of all denominations and races, their common denominator is an elongated D4DR gene.

The D4DR is a gene at the end of chromosome 11. We all have it, but when it is mutant or elongated, it causes that person to seekout high stimulation via adventure travel or extreme sports.

For the first time, we have managed to bring together a unique niche within our society, filling a vacuum which laid dormant for years.

Just weeks after our site was launched it had already seen an amazing response. Over 2500 visitors and 100 email requests came in soon after its launch.

Why do people join the club? Some join to have a forum where they can interact with others like them, others want to take advantage of the club benefits and some want to advance the research on the D4DR gene.

According to a 1999 Time Magazine article, people living today do not encounter danger on a daily basis as they did centuries ago. This has caused people to search out and take risks on their own to satisfy this urge.

Either way, the club has definitely tapped into something which many of us could just not put our finger on previously.

As the site's home page states, "if you've got the D4DR gene, no need to do genetic testing, you probably know it!"

Not just another restaurant tip!

by HotRodEtte

My mom's family is from a little suburban town called Coraopolis, about 20 or so miles west of Pittsburgh. Many Italian immigrants settled in this area, including my grandparents. On 5th Avenue, there's a little family owned restaurant called LoBello's--an Italian place of course! My cousin used to work here before he became a grown man; as a matter of fact his parents still live next door to the restaurant. If you're ever in the area, why not check LoBello's out? It's small so you may have to wait, and their hours are a little "odd," but the food is to die for!
