Pittsburgh has the pleasure of experiencing four distinct seasons. Here are some hints at what you can expect.
North Side, South Side and all around town. You'll point you in all the right directions to find the hot spots for you. Like dinner on top of a mountain. A walk though Silver Clouds at the Warhol Museum. Or the dazzle of Broadway in the heart of the Cultural District. First stop, Take the Tour. You'll get a feel for Pittsburgh's Five O'Clock World.
Grand spaces, cutting edge capabilities, convenient locations, comfortable surroundings. Our regional destinations make for great retreats, getaways and meetings in countryside settings. Start in downtown, the heart of Pittsburgh. Or added convenience, hotels are listed by average commute times from downtown. Less than 10 minutes or between 10 and 20 minutes or between 20 and 30 minutes. What do you want to do today? Chances are, you can do it in Pittsburgh. Art abounds, culture's around every corner and history is right at home here. Take time to explore and see and do more. The great outdoors, Broadway shows, world-class coasters, picture perfect museums…pack your camera and your walking shoes.
Hungry? Morning noon and night, Pittsburgh satisfies. What's your pleasure—family style, Asian, Continental, Mexican, Italian? Take your pick. In Pittsburgh, your choices are as varied as our rich ethnic culture. From pierogies and polenta to paella and paté, you'll discover the flavors of old-world cooking to the novelties of nouveau cuisine.
Begin your evening with dinner at one of downtown Pittsburgh's outstanding restaurants, then head to the Cultural District to enjoy a variety of live performances. Pittsburgh's Strip District offers restaurants, bars and nightclubs to suit every taste. Enjoy the day's most popular hits at The Boardwalk Down by the River or visit the clubs along Smallman Street and Penn Avenue for everything from industrial rock to disco to jazz. Across the river from downtown, dance floors beckon at Station Square. An eclectic mix of music, atmosphere and food can be had along East Carson Street, where local rock, acoustic and blues bands perform nightly at the neighborhood's intimate clubs and bars. End your night with a steaming cup of java at one of the South Side's cozy coffee houses.
Not just a great town for spectators, Pittsburgh's close to the great outdoors, and great for camping, hiking, biking, rafting, golfing, and, with three rivers, boating.
