The U.S. Steel Tower (the city's tallest), Schenley Park (a 456-acre green space), and any of the Carnegie Museums are worth a visit. Pittsburgh is a sports town, so take advantage by attending a Steelers football game at Heinz Field (fall and winter), a Pirates baseball game at PNC Park (April through September), or Penguins hockey game at Consol Energy Center (winter and spring). Live music venues in the Cultural District are always outstanding, while trolley tours or river cruises offer a unique city intimacy. Shoppers should head to Oakland or the South Side, which has many hip shops, restaurants and bars. When searching for Pittsburgh hotels, be sure to consider what you'll do while in town.
Festivals and Events
The Three Rivers Art Festival in June always attracts a large crowd, as does the Pittsburgh Folk Festival in May and the Three Rivers Regatta on the Fourth of July. Want to feel like you're over in Italy? Come during August to celebrate Little Italy Days. No matter when you come, Steel City will be hosting some sort of event.
