Description

Mr. Roger's neighborhood, the Ferris Wheel, the Big Mac, television and radio. What do they all have in common? They were all created in the city built of steel and coal...and pop culture--Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Famous for its sports teams and its wide range of museums, sports, art, and history enthusiasts will not be disappointed in a visit to Pittsburgh. It's a great place to bring the whole family, especially if you're vacationing on a budget, as some of the most interesting things to do and see are free. Even the architecture is famous in Pittsburgh--with Frank Loyd Wright's Fallingwater within just a short drive. Pittsburgh rests just off the shores of the Ohio River and the casinos, live music, and dancing help the city truly come to life after the sun goes down.

We love to go to Pittsburgh to watch the Steelers play. You have to take a Fairy over. Nice ride on the river and nice drinks and snacks on the way. Great sandwichs they make out of staek and coleslaw with fries on top. Everyone loves them...

Lots of culture and activities for everyone. Park the car your here...because you'll get lost driving around and around.

Pittsburgh is one of my favorite cities. Not only is it affordable and easy to access, it has a host of interesting activities spread across the city. While the peace, quiet and nature leave a bit to be desired, the architecture is arresting and the night life varied. In 2002 I was able to go to a Patti Smith show just a couple of blocks from my hotel and later on we enjoyed a jazz show at a nearby bar (can't remember the name!). Also, you seriously have not lived until you've tasted the famous Primanti Brothers ham sandwich topped with french fries and coleslaw!
