For our out-of-town guests, we've put together a list of fun things to do in the Steel City.
Andy Warhol Museum
See famous works by Pittsburgh native, Andy Warhol.
Tour Pittsburgh by land and sea.
Widely recognized as one of architect Frank Lloyd Wright's crowning achievments, Fallingwater is located in Bear Run, Pennsylvania. It's a bit of a drive from Pittsburgh, but if you have a free afternoon, a visit is well worth the time it takes to get there. Tour guides lead you through the house while giving historical background and information about the design and the designer.
Kennywood is the quintessential American theme park. A recognized Historic Landmark, it has both old-time charm and exciting newer roller-coasters.
Mt. Washington Inclines
Once upon a time, dozens of cable cars ran up and down Mt. Washington. Factory workers lived up on the top of the mountain, and took the inclines down to the city for work. Today there are only two inclines remaining, and most people just take them to admire the spectacular view from the top.
If you're staying in Pittsburgh for more than just the weekend, our major league baseball team has home games on July 14-16 vs. Washington, July 17-19 vs. Colorado, and July 28-30 vs. San Francisco. They play at PNC Park, which is right on the Allegheny River, just across the Roberto Clemente Bridge from downtown. The skyline view provides an amazing backdrop for the game, and if you're lucky there'll be fireworks over the river.
