Pittsburgh is surprisingly a fun city to see as a tourist. It’s hilly and bridge-y and filled with good art. The natives, also known as Yinzers, are down to earth, sports fanatics, and like french fries in their sandwiches.
where to drink: Fathead’s
Fatheads is the place to grab a great beer (or a few of them). They have 42 continually rotating taps and the food is tasty too.
where to sightsee: Gateway Clipper Cruise
The Allegheny and the Monongahela Rivers meet and form the Ohio River, creating the golden triangle that makes up downtown. Sit back and enjoy a laid back historical tour from the water.
where to art: The Mattress Factory & The Warhol Museum
The Mattress Factory is a contemporary museum featuring room-sized exhibits. The Warhol honors Andy, originally from Pittsburgh, and other artists.
where to eat: Sienna Mercato
Now this joint is cool. It’s a three story restaurant with different specialties on each floor. (1st is meatballs, 2nd is pizza, and 3rd is a beer garden)
where to sport: PNC for a Pirates game on firework night
Everyone loves explosions of fire in the sky and America’s favorite pastime! And PNC is a great park with good beer and food– give Rivertowne Brewing a try.
