Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pittsburgh has more rain than many other American cities, so bring an umbrella and a waterproof raincoat or windbreaker. Also, bring warm clothing in the winter, because it does get cold.
Photo Equipment: Bring a camera. The Pittsburgh are is prettier than most people who have never been there think it would be.
Miscellaneous: If you are driving, buy a good, detailed map of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area. The terrain is very hilly and the roads have lots and lots of curves, so it is very easy to get turned around and lost. Also, because of the many hills, it is hard to follow distant visual landmarks to get to where you want to go. The road system is definitely not a grid like it is in many American cities.
