Pittsburgh Vacations

Cement walls rise up, encircling you in the long, stout gray tube of the Fort Pitt Tunnel. There’s light at the end of it, light that draws steadily nearer as you accelerate slightly. The tunnel abruptly opens, revealing the towering skyscrapers and swift-moving life of a busy metropolis. It’s rather like being reborn, or emerging from darkness into a world filled with light. Congratulations, traveler: You purchased a vacation package in Pittsburgh, PA and you’ve finally arrived.

Of course, the Fort Pitt Tunnel isn’t the only way to get into the city, though it may be among the most memorable. It also provides a striking introduction to this Pennsylvanian gem, and a visual image that will stick with you long after your getaway has ended. So ready your camera and your sense of wonder—Travelocity’s vacations in Pittsburgh will require both.

Pittsburgh Vacations

The name “Pittsburgh” is entwined with that of Carnegie, and for good reason. The famed industrialist and later philanthropist established the Carnegie Steel Company right here in Pittsburgh, earning it the nickname of “Steel City.” Carnegie later sold his firm, and used the proceeds from its sale to form museums and performance venues across the Eastern Seaboard. Among these jewels are the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, four establishments that you absolutely must explore upon arriving in the city. Take in artistic genius at the Andy Warhol Museum, then broaden your creative horizons at the Carnegie Museum of Art. There’s also the Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Science Center just waiting for you to set foot in them.

Yes, this is a city of steel and cement, but tucked amid the magnificent skyscrapers and thoroughfares are gardens and quiet green spaces that are perfect for a day of reflection. One such space is the Phipps Conservatory, a sprawling sanctuary in Schenley Park. Since its founding at the end of the 19th century, its rooms and gardens have provided both education and places of great beauty for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.

Book Vacation Packages in Pittsburgh

A large city like Pittsburgh has any number of accommodations in which to take up residence, but we’ve curated some favorites we’d like to suggest:

  • Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown: Enjoy a city adventure from the heart of the downtown area. The 3 Rivers Restaurant and Lounge serves up delicious fare after a day spent prowling “Steel City,” and the indoor pool and hot tub allow you to energize or unwind no matter what type of weather is on outside.
  • Omni William Penn Hotel: Relax in a variety of rooms, each uniquely tailored to evoke both comfort and luxury. Rest up in well-appointed accommodations ranging from single rooms to sprawling suites, and enjoy your meals in one of the many restaurants located inside.
  • DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown: A delicious meal at Chef Anthony Zallo’s Bigelow Grille will set an excellent tone for the rest of your day. Should you want to take some air after a day of adventuring, wander over to nearby Mellon Green or Crosstown Park.
  • Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square: Perched right on the riverfront, the Sheraton is the perfect home base for your Steel City exploration. Let the city lights blink on around you as you relax in the Club Lounge, or get your heart rate up at the fitness center.
