ravel was turned upside down in 2020. And while things may look a little different in 2021, visitors to the region can take comfort knowing that the Pittsburgh travel and hospitality communities have worked tirelessly to implement health and safety protocols that create an environment that helps residents and visitors safely and confidently enjoy this beautiful, welcoming destination.
Additionally, restaurants and bars have upped their health and safety standards, too, allowing foodies and craft beer and spirits enthusiasts to conveniently and safely enjoy Pittsburgh’s varied offerings. And, revamped health and safety protocols also have been implemented at Pittsburgh’s retail stores, entertainment venues and throughout the many local transportation companies, too.
Through collaboration with its tourism partners, VisitPITTSBURGH created the Pittsburgh Global Health (PGH) & Safety Commitment – a lifelong pledge from these communities to residents and visitors to exceed their highest expectations when it comes to their health and safety.
In fact, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center (DLCC), PPG Paints Arena and the Petersen Events Center, all ASM Global-managed properties, are operating under the VenueShield Environmental Hygiene Program. Created by ASM Global, the world’s largest venue management & services company, the VenueShield program offers best practices across work streams related to environmental hygiene, food service, customer journey, talent, public awareness and technology and equipment, including state-of-the-art standard operating procedures for environmental hygiene.
The PGH Commitment adheres to the health practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Pennsylvania and Allegheny County Health Departments and the City of Pittsburgh. The information presented is an aggregation of inplace protocols from tourism partners throughout the Pittsburgh region; it is a visitor resource and not legal recommendations for visiting Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh region is dedicated to delivering a gold standard in health and safety practices.
The Pittsburgh Global Health (PGH) & Safety Commitment is a lifelong pledge from the Pittsburgh tourism community to our visitors and residents that your health and safety will remain our top priorities.
The Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) has implemented the PIT Safe Travels program, which boosts health and safety measures already in place throughout the facility. The initiative also incorporates enhanced protocols that outline best practices for reducing the spread of germs. And, for those visitors seeking additional peace of mind, the airport is offering COVID-19 testing.
The DLCC goes a step further, too. The facility holds the highest rating for LEED® Platinum Certification in the United States and also provides more than 1.5 million feet of meeting and exhibit space, which, due to the column-free exhibit halls, allows an abundance of spacing for meeting planners’ preferences. And, with its sloping roofs, it can boast of a natural air ventilation system, allowing for natural outside air to be circulated throughout the large event halls. Whether visiting Pittsburgh for a business event, a sports event or leisure travel, rest assured that the community is aligned in prioritizing residents' and visitors’ health and wellbeing.
⊲ Jerad Bachar has close to 30 years of tourism and economic development experience in an array of countries and business environments. He has worked in both developed and emerging markets in the areas of destination branding and marketing, economic development and diversification, and workforce development.
PIT also leaned into the city’s rich tech reputation, relying on the help of self-driving robots to prioritize travelers’ health and safety. The airport partnered with Pittsburghbased Carnegie Robotics in 2020 to deploy autonomous floor scrubbers, which use UV technology designed to attack microbes in high-traffic areas; PIT was the first airport nationally to use ultraviolet cleaning. New health and safety standards have been implemented throughout Pittsburgh’s outstanding accommodations, including upgrades in sanitation processes, such as electrostatic sprayers with ultraviolet light and hospitalgrade disinfectants, and the prominent placement of hand sanitizers. Additionally, many hotels are now utilizing contactless check-in options. For those looking to enjoy Pittsburgh’s museums and attractions, please know that most have implemented timed ticketing and are operating at reduced capacity; visitors are encouraged to check the individual business’ websites for additional COVID-19 protocols.

Duquesne Incline Overlook View | Dave DiCello
⊲ By Amanda Narcisi
ittsburgh is breathtaking!
No, really – the city is known to take a visitor's breath away, especially those who enter through the Fort Pitt Tunnel. The first sight of the buildings and the mighty three rivers – the Allegheny and Monongahela merging into the Ohio at Point State Park – is just spectacular. An entrance like no other, at that moment, it’s easy to see why WalletHub named Pittsburgh one of the top-20 cities to live in. Visitors can further see the city from different perspectives via the many different tour offerings. Experience Pittsburgh and several of the city's 90 unique neighborhoods and enjoy a fully guided 90-minute historical tour aboard Molly's Trolleys' vintage-style trolley. The Gateway Clipper Fleet allows visitors to see the city from the rivers, while the
Destination Monongahela and Duquesne Inclines shuttle riders to the top of Mount Washington, easily one of Pittsburgh’s most famous vantage points. If you prefer to move while you explore, Bike the Burgh and Walk the Burgh tours allow visitors to fully immerse themselves in the city’s neighborhoods. And, Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation offers tours of many of Pittsburgh’s historical buildings. No matter the tour, visitors are sure to notice Pittsburgh’s abundance of green space and parks; you can find a few of them within the golden triangle, including Mellon Square Park and Point State Park.
There is so much to see in Pittsburgh’s 90 neighborhoods – each is a gateway to culture and fun. There are novel museums, like the Mattress Factory and the Carnegie Museums of Natural History and Art, and only-in-Pittsburgh attractions like The Andy Warhol Museum, located in the North Shore neighborhood and dedicated to the Pittsburgh artist’s work. There also are independent galleries throughout the various neighborhoods, like BOOM Concepts in Garfield, a creative hub that is dedicated to the development of artists and creative entrepreneurs representing marginalized voices. Unique neighborhood finds also include the Allegheny Observatory, a working observatory nestled in beautiful Riverview Park, the highest point in Pittsburgh. While there, book time for a bike ride or walk around the park. Pittsburgh’s heart is its 14-square block Cultural District, where visitors can see a play or Broadway show and also walk through outdoor art displays all without leaving the city. Home to nine theatres, including the worldrenowned Benedum Center, Heinz Hall and the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, and surrounded by sculptures and art gardens, such as Katz Plaza and 7th and Penn Parklet, the Cultural District offers something for all arts and cultural lovers. Plus, the restaurant scene is a can’t-miss! Speaking of food, Jetsetter named Pittsburgh one of America’s top-10 food cities for 2019, and it’s easy to see why. The city’s food scene covers every taste from French food at Poulet Bleu in Lawrenceville to cheeseburgers
Take a ride on the 144-year-old iconic cable car to the upper station’s Observation Deck to see what USA Today Weekend Magazine called one of the “10 most beautiful views in America.”

at Federal Galley, a food incubator on the North Shore that rotates restaurants, helping chefs test menus and raise funds for their brick and mortars. An astounding amount of breweries call Pittsburgh home, too, and the number continues to grow each day. Even national breweries have opened taprooms in Pittsburgh, including Southern Tier and Sly Fox. For lovers of spirits, Pittsburgh is home to Wigle Whiskey, Pittsburgh’s first distillery since Prohibition. Other distilleries and spirit makers include Maggie’s Farm Rum, Kingfly and Boyd & Blair Vodka. Hotels in Pittsburgh range from sleeping in history to the very modern. The Omni William Penn is the oldest hotel in Pittsburgh and has amenities like The Speakeasy, a Prohibition-era bar, and a historical relic hall. Many of Pittsburgh’s hotels lean into their history. Take the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh. The hotel’s exterior dates back to 1903, when the building served an electric company, but inside, the hotel is bursting with color and modern rooms. Local hotels also have amazing packages, including spas, tours and pup-friendly packages. In fact, Fairmont Pittsburgh includes two of these amenities, with an amazing spa and a pampered-pup package, which includes a locally made dog bandana. The best way to experience Pittsburgh is to spend time here! Book one of the outstanding hotels, rent a bike, schedule a tour or set out for a walk and explore all 90 neighborhoods for cultural, art and outdoor offerings, as well as history and fantastic food!

Pittsburghers are known for a few unique fares when it comes to local flavors. Heard of a Pittsburgh salad? It’s a blend of lettuce, veggies and meat, usually steak or chicken, topped with a pile of shredded mozzarella cheese and French fries. Yes, French fries.
Pittsburghers love French fries. The proof is in the sandwich. A Primanti Bros. sandwich that is – grilled meat, topped with cheese, French fries, coleslaw and tomatoes between two slices of thick Italian bread. Add a fried egg and you’ll blend right in with the locals. Pierogies are another staple. From Pierogies Plus to Cop Out Pierogies, the Pittsburgh Pierogi Truck and more, there is no shortage of great places for these delicious handmade dumplings. You can't go wrong by starting your morning in Pittsburgh with pancakes at P&G's Pamela's Diner. And, when you're looking for something sweet, be sure to try the Burnt Almond Torte from Prantl’s Bakery – the treat that HuffPost called “the greatest cake America has ever made.” Yep.

hen you think about Pittsburgh, you might think about sports, the region’s excellent hospitals and emerging technology sector or possibly the booming craft beer scene. But art? It might not be on your radar. But it should be.
There’s more to Pittsburgh’s art scene than just museums and galleries – although, the city has plenty of those. In fact, many makers call Pittsburgh home. These are the people creating everything from candles to jewelry, clothing to home decor; the workshops where you can learn a new skill and take something home; the experiences you can have wandering the city looking at street art. Each of Pittsburgh’s 90 neighborhoods has a different vibe, which reflects in the local art and shops you’ll find. Maybe it’s because Pittsburgh is a smaller city, but Pittsburghers tend to be very friendly. They’re also incredibly proud of their city, so if you aren’t sure where to find the art or types of shops you’re looking for – just ask a local. They are guaranteed to have some amazing recommendations, including hidden gems that might be off the beaten path.
No matter what you’re looking to buy, it is very likely there is someone in Pittsburgh making it. While many artisans have storefronts, Pittsburgh also is home to a variety of pop-ups. Coffee shops often feature local artwork that you can purchase. And, most boutiques sell items created by local makers. Farmers markets and winter markets also are perfect places to look for local items! Below is just a small sample of Pittsburgh’s offerings:
⊲ Small Mall (Lawrenceville) sells art and design objects from Pittsburgh makers. ⊲ love, Pittsburgh (Mount Washington, Downtown) is a gift shop that curates tasteful gifts made by Pittsburghers.

FABRIC OF THE COMMUNITY

Grandma, Grandpa ⊲ By Barb Hollie
chedules were turned upside down in 2020. Let’s face it – moms and dads are busier than ever! They are working to cover the rent or mortgage, put food on the table and buy clothes and shoes. Coupled with changes in schooling, too, and parents are stretched thin. Thankfully, parents have a secret weapon in their toolbox – someone who has extra time on their hands, who loves spending time with their families and is always up for an adventure. No, this isn’t a superhero…it’s Grandma and Grandpa!
Think about it. Grandparents or grandparent-figures are fun-loving hug-sharers. They are teachers, mentors and child-care providers who love to focus their time and energy on a grandchild. That said, what’s better than shared activities where both generations can learn and grow together.
Heinz History Center | Rachel Lynn Schoen
Though some say the best part about being a grandparent is returning the grandkids back to their parents at the end of the day, this argument glosses over the ULTIMATE reward of being a grandparent… spending TIME and making MEMORIES with the next generation! From endless smiles and laughs that last weeks, few things match seeing something new through the eyes of a child.
Carnegie Science Center
Thankfully, Pittsburgh offers plenty of memory-making opportunities because Pittsburgh is KidsBURGH®! The city is a playground for grandparents and grandkids – fun, affordable and packed with family entertainment. From museums to wildlife, river cruises to nature offerings and even historic amusement parks, Pittsburgh has everything to stimulate the imagination of both generations.
