Be Our Neighbor

With an iconic skyline where three rivers meet, Pittsburgh boasts big-city offerings with smallcity charm.

Upon arrival, cross the must-do items off your Pittsburgh bucket list:

⊲ A visit to one of Pittsburgh’s 30+ museums, from the renowned Carnegie Museum of Art, Heinz History Center, The Andy Warhol Museum and Mattress Factory, to the quirky Randyland or Bicycle Heaven.

⊲ Catch a game from one of our major professional sports teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

⊲ Take a bite out of a french fry-filled Primanti Bros. sandwich or Polish deli pierogies on your Sunday in the Strip District.

⊲ Ascend the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines to see the Golden Triangle and our famous bridges. Day or night (we recommend both), the vista will take your breath away.

But the best way to discover Pittsburgh? Open a map, pick a neighborhood and explore.

Pittsburgh’s vibrant personality takes center stage in its 90 unique neighborhoods, often separated by hills, bridges and rivers. How many wonders we have packed into our city becomes apparent when you dive into each community and see what makes it special.

Let’s experience a few together…

Venture to Polish Hill for breakfast from Kaibur Coffee & Cafe before admiring the neighborhood’s historic Immaculate Heart of Mary Church from multiple vantage points.

Dave DiCello

Note the edgy charm of Polish Hill’s dive bars before heading to Lawrenceville, sprawled along the Allegheny River and bursting with restaurants, cocktail bars, cafés and galleries. Jumpstart your day at Espresso a Mano or have a drink at The Abbey on Butler Street, a funeral home turned popular restaurant. Enjoy Lawrenceville nightlife at Spirit or Thunderbird Café & Music Hall, and admire local art at Redfishbowl. Catch a flick at Row House Cinema and indulge your inner child at Kickback Pinball Café. Wander into any Butler Street business that catches your eye, and you’re guaranteed a good time.

If you’re here on the first Friday of the month, it’s essential to experience Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn Avenue, a lively monthly art crawl in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood. Refuel with a pizza from Spak Brothers while you explore. Stroll over to Bloomfield and dine at vegan Apteka, voted a top-50 restaurant by the New York Times, or drink a brew from beloved Trace Brewing. Speaking of beer: Pittsburgh is home to more than 50 craft breweries.

Just down the street, see a performance at Kelly Strayhorn Theater on Penn Avenue, named after famed dancer and Hollywood movie legend Gene Kelly, born and raised in East Liberty, and Homewood-born jazz composer Billy Strayhorn. Speaking of Homewood, visit the Afro-American Music Institute. Get a coffee at Everyday Café or KLVN Coffee Lab in nearby Larimer before checking out the neighborhood’s murals curated in The Homewood Experience Art Walk. End the night with a beer at East End Brewing Company or a cocktail/ mocktail on tap from Goodlander Cocktail Brewery, both in Larimer.

Oakland is home to five universities, the main Carnegie Library branch and the lush Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Shop and dine in nearby Shadyside and Squirrel Hill, or swing through the neighborhood known for putting

Pittsburgh on the jazz map: the Hill District. While most Pittsburgh jazz clubs are a relic (though Con Alma in Downtown and Shadyside keep it going), the Hill District is one of Pittsburgh’s most historic neighborhoods and home to famous playwright August Wilson’s house.

If atop Mt. Washington for fine dining on Grandview Avenue, hop next door to Allentown, a working-class neighborhood now home to a bustling main street. Cravings for fine steak and seafood will be satisfied at Alla Famiglia. Or, indulge in mouthwatering vegan fare from Onion Maiden. Down the slope is the South Side, full of quirky vintage stores, ice cream factories and no shortage of bars — more than 80 stretch down Carson Street.

On Pittsburgh’s Northside, immerse yourself in the greenery of Allegheny Commons, Pittsburgh’s oldest park and home to gorgeous Lake Elizabeth. The park borders the Mexican War Streets neighborhood, named after people and places of the Mexican-American war and full of charming architecture and small businesses (even a bookstore) sprinkled throughout.

If you need a break from the urban landscape, wander one of the 165 city parks, from small neighborhood

Her feature writing appears in Very Local Pittsburgh and other publications. Founder of her own public relations business, she is passionate about amplifying

parklets to acres of woods. Frick Park is the largest at 644 acres, with 16 trails and a number of babbling streams. While not quite a park, Lawrenceville’s Allegheny Cemetery, our oldest and largest burial ground, is a popular walking spot (and you’ll gasp not at ghosts but at historical graves). For a quintessential outdoor Pittsburgh adventure, climb one of the hundreds of city staircases.

A Pittsburgh visit wouldn’t be complete without touring Downtown. Market Square offers unique skyscraper views from the ground with no shortage of shops and restaurants. Explore our Cultural District, home to a dozen art galleries, 50 dining establishments and world-class theaters like the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts and Heinz Hall, home to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

Street Festivals? Beer festivals? Food festivals? Music festivals? We’ve got plenty of those, too, as well as farmers’ markets, artist markets, night markets, vintage markets and more.

Your Guide to Pittsburgh’sHistoric Inclines

Searching for one of the most iconic views of Pittsburgh? Get a stunning look at our skyline from one (or both) of Pittsburgh’s historic inclines!

What is an incline?

The Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines are operating funiculars for both visitors and residents. These railways have been in operation since the 1870s and were designed to transport people and cargo up and down Mt. Washington.

Red or yellow?

So, what’s the difference between the two inclines? The Duquesne Incline has red cars, is visible from Point State Park and can be accessed from the top of Mt. Washington at 1215 Grandview Ave., or from the bottom at 1197 W. Carson St. The Monongahela Incline has yellow cars, can be seen from the South Shore and can be accessed from the top at 8 Grandview Ave., or the bottom at 115 W. Carson St.

When to ride?

Pittsburgh Regional Transit (PRT) owns both inclines, and they operate all year long. Yes, that means you can take a ride 365 days a year!

How much?

The Duquesne Incline costs $5 for a roundtrip ride while the Monongahela Incline costs $3.50 for a roundtrip ride, both offering discounts for children and senior citizens. Pay your fare at the upper Monongahela Incline station and the lower Duquesne Incline station. The Monongahela Incline will accept credit cards, while the Duquesne Incline is exact cash only. The ConnectCard is accepted at both.

Then what?

Relish the incredible views! Both inclines offer unforgettable views that are the ultimate photo ops. Enjoy the views day or night, take a walk along Grandview Avenue for a delicious meal and shop Only in Pittsburgh stores for the perfect keepsake.

the FunUpRamping IN PITTSBURGH

Rolling down the spiral ramp connecting the floors of the Carnegie Science Center at full speed was an awful lot of fun. I was probably one of the only kids in Pittsburgh in a power wheelchair pulling a little red wagon with a ventilator on a trailer hitch. But, hey, having the driving skills of a professional tractortrailer driver before the age of 16 comes in handy navigating a city this big.

Now, 30 years later, as a disabled man, I’ve had the privilege of checking out the accessibility in many major towns across America and a few in Canada. It pleases me to report Pittsburgh is one of the most accessible when it comes to amenities, resources and cultural attractions for people using wheelchairs.

Anyone using a wheelchair can tell you two powerful enemies lurk in our world - stairs and cobblestones. While there are times when a single step may as well be a 3,000-yard jump, our city is surprisingly smooth. Outside of a few annoying Downtown streets where they absolutely refuse to give up the old-fashioned bricks, most of your driving in the city will be a great experience. From the South Side to The Point to the Cultural District, you’ll find sidewalks and pathways accessible, even if you need to be a little creative sometimes. For example, I find navigating our annual Picklesburgh and events at Point State Park easy; sometimes, you’ll

need to watch out for dips in giant grassy areas where hot air balloons may have launched in the past.

The great Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium has tons of hills, but it’s completely smooth with cement/asphalt pathways between all the attractions. I’ve had a lot of fun roaming between the different exhibits for hours on end. Perhaps my favorite part of my zoo experience is the penguin exhibit. It’s easy to roll into and provides a little bit of shelter on the hottest of days.

And speaking of Penguins, any guide to Pittsburgh without mentioning PPG Paints Arena would be extremely sad. The arena is accessible for both hockey games and other attractions

that take place inside of it, and it has plenty of great seats. I’ve seen many amazing shows and have never had a bad view from the wheelchair spots or a bad experience. Unless you thought you saw me that one time I was distracted flirting with my date and ran my chair straight into Iceburgh. No, you didn’t.

Now, our local amusement park, Kennywood, doesn’t have any rides for someone in a power wheelchair, but all areas are accessible. That keeps things fun when you can still enjoy the company of your friends, even if you can’t ride the rides.

But most of us in wheelchairs are pretty accustomed to doing things a little differently. For example, if you want to visit the LeMont Restaurant on Mount Washington, note that while the main entrance is not accessible for wheelchairs, they have an alternative entrance. Sometimes buildings weren’t made with accessibility in mind. Still, Pittsburghers are pretty good at helping you figure out ways around buildings that were not designed to be accessible to everyone.

You’ll find this is a common theme throughout the city. Most people here do their best to help you if they can. There are places to be wary of, including bars that have a lot of stairs to deal with, but most places will do what they can to help.

The city's popular Meat & Potatoes

gastropub is a small and cramped place filled with culture and delicious food. Navigating a power wheelchair there wasn’t easy. But the restaurant owner made me feel very welcome, moving tables and patrons when necessary. In fact, when one woman tripped over my back tire, she even bought me a drink, which led to a fun night and some great memories.

Now that is genuinely a typical Pittsburgh experience. I hope yours are equally magical.

As the cherry blossoms hit their peak and the seasonal flowers begin to bloom, Pittsburgh is beautiful in spring. Be sure to make a stop at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens — a beautiful oasis in the middle of Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood. Then, head over to Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens for even more floral fun.

Now, to get all of the beautiful flowers and greenery, expect the much needed rain — which offers you the chance to explore Pittsburgh’s many indoor attractions. Make plans to experience Moonshot Museum, Pennsylvania’s first space museum and the first museum in the world to focus on career and community readiness for the 21st century space industry. While in the Northside, head over to explore The Andy Warhol Museum and experience the largest single artist museum in North America.

Back over in Oakland, visit two museums in one at the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History. Discover remarkable paintings, sculptures and architecture in the former and dinosaurs, gems and jewels in the latter. With hands-on activities for kids in both museums, it’s a fantastic experience for the entire family.

And, of course, be sure to catch a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game at PNC Park — consistently named one of the best ballparks in America.

Fall in Pittsburgh is downright gorgeous. As the temperatures slowly cool, the vibrant red, yellow and orange colors that truly signify the season sweep the city’s landscape.

Take a ride on the iconic Duquesne Incline for breathtaking panoramic skyline views. Here, you’ll get a full appreciation of the beautiful topography and rolling hills that surround the Downtown skyline.

And, of course, fall also is an unbelievable time of year for sports fans. Gear up with Steelers Nation at Acrisure Stadium for an electrifying, towel twirling, unforgettable game-day experience cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hit the slopes at Boyce Park or take a day trip to Seven Springs Mountain Resort. Pittsburgh’s hilly terrain also offers ideal places for sled riding in the many city and Allegheny County parks.

Warm up with a plate of delicious pierogies at Pierogies Plus, Butterjoint or Apteka. Or, relax at one of Pittsburgh’s eclectic, cozy coffee shops like Nicholas Coffee & Tea Co., Griff’s Grounds Coffé or Black Cat Market, a beloved cat café where you can get a coffee, baked good or tea while hanging out with adoptable furry friends.

If you prefer to avoid the cold, no problem! There are plenty of indoor attractions and activities to explore.

Discover the deep rooted history of the region at the Heinz History Center. Gather the family and explore incredible family attractions, including Carnegie Science Center, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and the National Aviary Spend an afternoon at the Mattress Factory — a must-see contemporary art museum.

Visit The Clemente Museum and learn about humanitarian and baseball legend, Roberto Clemente. And, cheer on the black and gold at a Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game at PPG Paints Arena

North Shore & Northside Neighborhoods Family Time IN THE

Welcome to Pittsburgh! I am the third-generation descendant of immigrants who settled in Pittsburgh to work in the mills. While residing in the region off and on throughout my life, I have called North Central West Virginia “home” for the last 30 years. As I live only a 90-minute drive from Pittsburgh, I visit the city about once a month, a trip made with my daughter countless times. I’ve watched Pittsburgh evolve from its industrial past to the thriving center of technology, medicine and culture that it is today.

My most recent trip included a visit to my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, the North Shore and Northside. There are so many activities for multigenerational families and groups in these neighborhoods.

The North Shore is best known as the location of Acrisure Stadium and PNC Park. These stadiums are the homes of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Pirates, respectively. I go to PNC Park at least once every summer. It’s the most beautiful ballpark in baseball. The view of Downtown from behind home plate is breathtaking. If the

weather is just right, a rainbow may arc over the skyline, beyond the outfield. If the Pirates are out of town during your visit, book a tour of the park — you’re sure to go home with a memorable photo!

Though the food offerings in the stadiums are beyond standard fare, consider also grabbing a meal, snack or brew at one of the nearby restaurants or breweries. Southern Tier Brewery offers a full menu of gastropub fare with a ‘Burgh twist. I recommend the potato and cheddar pierogies and a Here We Gold Lager

National Aviary

for the grownups. The large outdoor seating area is shaded, comfortable and great for people watching.

Between Acrisure Stadium and the confluence of the Allegheny and Ohio rivers, stop for a moment to visit Mister Rogers. Fred Rogers was a Pittsburgh native, and his iconic children’s show was produced by the region’s PBS station. The Tribute to Children statue of Fred Rogers offers an opportunity to reflect on his lessons, as well as another memorable photo opportunity.

If your interests lie in the arts, a short walk from the stadiums is The Andy Warhol Museum. Did you know Warhol was born and raised in Pittsburgh? The museum houses an extensive collection of his vibrant work, along with other artists from his era and genre. Don’t miss Keith Haring’s elephant and Warhol’s interactive Silver Clouds exhibit. Some items in the collections may not be appropriate for young guests.

Also near the North Shore is the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

Visitors of all ages will enjoy this Pittsburgh gem. You are sure to revel in the joy shown by your kids or grandkids, as well as experience

your own! Don’t forget to visit the MuseumLab, too — perfect for the tweens and teens in your group. Pittsburgh is one of the most walkable cities in the country, so after your visit to the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, head over to the National Aviary. It’s home to the other Pittsburgh penguins. The National Aviary has interactive exhibits, including feeding opportunities and encounters with the penguins and sloths. Birds are viewable in simulations of their natural habitats, including grasslands and a rainforest. With all these places to visit, you’re sure to work up an appetite!

Federal Galley in the Northside offers something for everyone, with four different restaurant concepts situated under one roof with a single-source ordering method. Local beers and adult beverages are available with a variety of cuisines.

Once the sun sets, there’s plenty of fun for the grownups throughout the neighborhoods with the backdrop of the stunning Pittsburgh skyline.

Stage AE is a great indoor/outdoor small concert venue located within a football’s throw of Acrisure Stadium. Stage AE features up-and-coming

and established performers in a variety of genres. Capacity is about 5,000 outdoors, and ticket prices are well below those of “stadium shows.” Stage AE also hosts several outdoor festivals throughout the summer featuring multi-cultural food, music and art.

New to the North Shore neighborhood is Shorty’s Pins x Pints, a “retrocade.” Duckpin bowling, pinball, bocce, foosball, shuffleboard and throwback arcade games will keep you active and entertained. While you can show off your old-school skills to your whole family in the afternoon, Shorty’s is 21+ after 8 p.m. The menu features shareables and tacos, and a full bar including adult slushies!

Are there things to do in Pittsburgh that aren’t in the North Shore and Northside neighborhoods? You bet! Recently, my daughter spent her 31st birthday at Kennywood. She first visited the park as a four-yearold. Kennywood is a small amusement park with top-rated rollercoasters, a 100-year-old carousel, iconic concessions and kiddie rides. It also features gardens, greenery, shade and benches to soak in the atmosphere. Don’t pass on The Potato Patch fries! Kennywood, celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2023, is located about 12 miles southeast of Downtown Pittsburgh. It has ample parking and reasonably priced admission. Stay the afternoon and into the evening to marvel at the lights.

My biggest tip as a frequent visitor to Pittsburgh — talk to the locals. Pittsburghers are the friendliest people! They are proud of their city and love to show it off. Ask your driver their favorite pizza joint and get tips on the best galleries from your barista.

No matter where you go in Pittsburgh, you will find something for your entire family. The city’s rich immigrant history has always placed family at the forefront, and those values continue to this day. See you in the ‘Burgh!

Food at the


Nestled in the Allegheny Mountain range, at the confluence of the Monongahela, Allegheny and Ohio rivers, lies a unique city. With blue collar roots that run deep, and a modern renaissance looking toward a future of innovation and technology, Pittsburgh is a model of resilience.

Pittsburgh has an extensive history as a place for immigrants to establish themselves in the United States. The industrial history of the city meant attracting workers from across the world to work in the steel mills and coal mines of the surrounding area — workers who helped turn Pittsburgh into the city that built America.

With a history rooted in the traditional European foods of pierogies, stews and pastas, today the international dishes of the city also include curries, steaming bowls of ramen or pho, and nkwobi. Bar menus have expanded from the Iron City pint to lists of Mexican mezcals, Japanese whiskeys and Italian amaros. Food in the Steel City has changed drastically and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. But while tastes have continued to evolve, one thing remains constant — Pittsburghers’ general love of food! Portion sizes here lean toward the Midwest, which guarantees patrons will never leave a restaurant hungry. Whether a Pittsburgher is watching

a Sunday game at their friend’s place or having a date night out on the town, food is always front and center.

While we cannot ignore the quantity of food available in Pittsburgh, perhaps the more important thing to highlight is the actual quality of food in the city. Restaurants all over the City of Bridges make it a point to use local ingredients and purveyors, helping to support the regional economy. Nationally acclaimed chef Justin Severino opened Morcilla as a tapas restaurant in Lawrenceville in 2016 and was immediately a James Beard semifinalist for Best New Restaurant in the country. Using local ingredients as much as possible, his team has carefully curated a tapas experience that will transport you to Spain. Be sure to try the housemade charcuterie!

Pittsburgh restaurant groups like big Burrito and the Richard DeShantz Restaurant Group continue to open concepts that push boundaries. The

highly anticipated recent opening of Sally Ann’s, a casual dining restaurant from Richard Deshantz with a killer brunch menu, gives diners a unique, fun option in the Cultural District.

For drinks, enjoy cocktails at Bridges & Bourbon before seeing a show in the Cultural District. As its name suggests, its extensive liquor selection puts bourbon, whiskey and rye front and center. And in a cozy, elegant environment, it’s perfect for kicking off a date night. La Palapa serves up some of the best Mexican food in the city and features a bar list sure to impress the mezcal drinker. Don’t miss any of the breweries helping to transform Pittsburgh into a beer drinker’s paradise, either. Somehow, craft beer tastes better when sipped under the stained glass of a historic church at The Church Brew Works

Enjoy an icy pint in the biergarten at Penn Brewery or sip an American pale ale in the taproom at Dancing Gnome

To enjoy the crisp apples of fall all year round, visit Arsenal Cider House for hard cider tastings.

For Asian flavors, try the city’s newest Cantonese restaurant, The Parlor Dim Sum, or enjoy Sichuan-style menus at Chengdu Gourmet or Sichuan Gourmet Everyday Noodles’ soup dumplings are easily the best crafted in any of the ‘Burgh’s neighborhoods, served in the traditional bamboo steam baskets with a burst of scalding pork broth when bitten. Pho Van in the Strip District features traditional Vietnamese pho with a rich depth of flavor to the broth that’s hard to beat. Try the South Indian dish, Goat Briyani, at Tamarind, or savor the chaats at Cafe Delhi. If Mediterranean food sounds better, enjoy Turkish Kebab House in Squirrel Hill or the charming basement Italian bistro, Girasole, in Shadyside. Enjoy traditional West African dishes at African Cuisine, where the menu features Nigerian recipes from the owners’ homeland.

The Strip District still boasts classic food markets like Wholey’s Fish Market, S&D Polish Deli and Pennsylvania Macaroni Company But be sure to also take a look at Pennsylvania Libations, a liquor store dedicated to selling and supporting Pennsylvania-made craft beverages. Salem’s Market and Grill further into the Strip District is a great place for any Halal needs. They also sell meat fresh from local farms. Spice blends from Penzeys will spruce up any meal but be sure to check out Steel City Salt Company in Millvale, too.

No matter the taste or budget, Pittsburgh has something to offer every food lover. Discover the beauty, diversity and grit of our city and indulge in some delicious food along the way!

Experience Pittsburgh’s food scene through our local sports scene! Next time you visit one of our three major stadiums, you can taste some of the best of our regional food, as well as some whacky options that surprisingly work.

PNC Park

PNC Park, the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, has a variety of tasty treats. Classic Pittsburgh food options at the park include the Primanti Bros. sandwich, stacked high with deli coleslaw and french fries. Enjoy a bite of our Only in Pittsburgh offerings at Chicken on the Hill, which features a menu inspired by Coop de Ville in the Strip District. Order the pimento friend chicken sandwich and thank us later. Deli Dogs offers upscale takes on the classic ballpark hot dog, with high-quality dogs and buns served Reuben, Chicago and chili style. And, ballpark nachos get kicked up a notch by Nachoritas with queso and crema for a satisfying addition.

PPG Paints Arena

When the Pittsburgh Penguins hit the ice at the PPG Paints Arena, there’s no shortage of food for fans to enjoy. Check out the meatballs at Emporio: A Meatball Joint. One of Pittsburgh’s best sushi restaurants, Nakama, has two locations in the arena where fresh rolls and sashimi are made throughout the game. Quench your thirst with a beer from Turnpike Tavern’s selection, but if you’re looking for something sweet, enjoy a milkshake from one of Pittsburgh’s more beloved burger restaurants, Burgatory

Acrisure Stadium

How do you make the American classic, the corndog, any better? You incorporate Doritos and pretzels. An order of Doritos Corn Dog Pretzels at Acrisure Stadium, home to the Pittsburgh Steelers, includes two freshly battered corn dogs, coated with crushed Doritos and topped with nacho cheese and scallions, on a bed of Doritos. If you’re craving pizza, check out Franco’s Pizzeria, which features three Steelers’ themed pies: The Immaculate Pie, Gina Margarita & PeppeRooney Pizza. If beer isn’t your preferred beverage, Acrisure Stadium features a diverse wine selection at the North Shore Winery stand.

Are you ready to explore the rich history and vibrant contemporary scene of imbibing in Pittsburgh? From savoring delicious wine at romantic date night spots to trying out the city's various craft beer styles, there's something for everyone in this city.

We'll guide you to the best places to go, from hidden gems to popular breweries, and introduce you to some friendly and knowledgeable staff who will help you find your perfect drink. We'll also delve into Pittsburgh's thriving sake culture, offering

recommendations for the best bars and restaurants to try. So, come along on our journey and discover all that Pittsburgh has to offer in the world of imbibing.

The earliest history of winemaking in Pittsburgh dates back to the 1700s when British settlers brought their grape vines to the region. But if you want something a little fresher, we recommend Black Dog Winery in Oakdale, right outside Pittsburgh. The winery, located at Hanky Farmhouse, is a great spot for date night. If you're looking to grab a bottle of this delicious wine within the city, we recommend taking a trip down to Pennsylvania Libations on Penn Avenue in the Strip District. Our go-to bottle is Black Dog’s Tipsy Turkey, a pumpkin spice wine that is a family favorite during the holiday season.

The craft beer scene in Pittsburgh is vibrant and ever evolving. Local breweries have honed their craft and mastered a variety of styles, from sours and IPAs to lagers and stouts. No matter your taste, there is sure to be something for you in Pittsburgh's craft beer scene.

Two Frays Brewery is a must-visit brewery in Garfield. The beer is good, and the owners are incredible people; we are glad to call them friends. We love that they are community-driven and bring in art vendors, including tons of women-owned businesses, to their place. It's also a bonus that they are dog friendly! We know that friendly, welcoming staff can make all the difference in creating a good atmosphere in a brewery. The staff at Two Frays Brewery is knowledgeable about the types of beer they serve and are willing to answer any customer’s question while caring about the community. Two Frays Brewery now offers nonalcoholic beers year-round for those who want to imbibe differently.

The first pub in Pittsburgh is believed to be the Old Monongahela House, which was built in 1794. It was a popular spot for travelers and residents alike, offering lodging, food, beer and spirits. The pub was located in Downtown Pittsburgh before it was destroyed in a fire in 1854. Thankfully, you do not have to go back to the 1800s to have a Bonafide good time in Pittsburgh today, as Bonafide Beer Co. is open now in the Strip District! We were so excited to spend some time there recently. The feel of the place gives off some speakeasy vibes with relaxing couches and chairs. You can also rent a private room to enjoy whiskey and the TV with a couple of friends. This will be the place to go in the Strip District for good whiskey drinks and great craft beer — brewed in-house.

Sake, a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice, is becoming increasingly popular in

Pittsburgh. The city is home to several sake bars and restaurants offering various options to suit all tastes. Fujiya Ramen is a great place to try sake for the first time; plus, it serves our favorite bowl of ramen. Located on S. Aiken Avenue in Shadyside, we love their unique, fantastic sake selection, all of which can be easily sampled with sake flights.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through Pittsburgh’s vibrant world of craft beverages. We hope you've enjoyed discovering some of our favorite spots and learning about the city's rich history and contemporary scene. From romantic date night locations to hidden gem breweries and sake bars, there's something for everyone in this city. We hope you continue to explore and find your favorite places to imbibe in Pittsburgh. We look forward to sharing more of our favorite spots with you in the future. Cheers!

Pittsburgh Haunted

From intimate crimes of passion and dark family ties to a history-changing Civil War, Pittsburgh’s ghosts of the past are still a haunting presence today. Find your favorite spot to haunt around the city — both believers and non-believers are welcome!

Allegheny Cemetery


The ghost of Harry K. Thaw, son of coal and railroad baron William Kendall Thaw, is said to wander the grounds of Allegheny Cemetery near his burial site. His infamy, tied to the murder of famed architect Stanford White in 1906 and dubbed “the trial of the century,” involved Thaw’s wife, performer Evelyn Nesbit. He was found mentally insane by a jury and confined to an asylum for years. Schedule a tour of the cemetery grounds to learn more.

Clayton: The Frick Mansion


Clayton, the former family home of millionaire Henry Clay Frick, is said to have the spirits of two women thought to be members of the Frick family wandering its halls. You can book a tour and investigate for yourself at the preserved mansion. Continue your investigation with a short walk from the house to Homewood Cemetery where many of the Frick family members are buried.

Cathedral of Learning, University of Pittsburgh


The Early American Room at Pitt’s Cathedral of Learning holds a special energy. Within a hidden staircase is a bedroom containing some of the belongings of Martha Jane Poe, a relative of Edgar Allen Poe. Staff and docents in the Cathedral have noticed odd noises, items moved without being touched and dark shadows shifting around corners. The rooms are often open for viewing and occasional guided tours.

The National Aviary


Calvary Cemetery


The ghosts of gangster brothers Edward and Jack Biddle may be found on the grounds of Calvary Cemetery, still angry that their lives were cut short after a famous Pittsburgh prison break. Convicted of several crimes, including robbery and murder, the Biddles were imprisoned and sentenced to hang. But the warden’s wife, Kate Soffel, began a romance with Ed, and helped the Biddles escape prison. The freedom didn't last long, as the brothers were both killed in a gun battle, and Soffel was seriously injured.

The National Aviary on the Northside was built on the site of the former Western Penitentiary. During The American Civil War, the prison was operated by Union soldiers, keeping Confederate soldiers in lockdown. The prison was overcrowded and unclean. Many soldiers died in captivity, and it’s believed that their spirits still wander the halls of the aviary.

PITTSBURGH: A Great City for CollegeStudents

Hello, I’m Jeremy — I grew up right outside of Pittsburgh, and I’m very proud to say that I currently attend the University of Pittsburgh When most people think of a “college town,” Pittsburgh might not be the first city that comes to mind, but our universities are becoming more and more influential on the city’s culture. Pittsburgh is home to six four-year institutions with more than 15 others within 50 miles. Our universities, and brilliant students, are making innovations every day in healthcare, AI, engineering, arts, business and so many more fields.

I think our city is an amazing place for college students, with so many vibrant neighborhoods, delicious food and exciting events. At any point of the year, when our college students want to wander off campus for a new experience, Pittsburgh always has something fun to do.

Here are some of my favorite activities to do as a college student in Pittsburgh:

Attend a Pittsburgh Penguins Game

There are few pro sports cities in the country like Pittsburgh, and no Pittsburgh experience is complete without checking out any of our black and gold teams. The best pro sports experience for college students is, without a doubt, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ student rush discount program. The games are always exciting, PPG Paints Arena is gorgeous and the Pens have consistently been one of the NHL’s best teams. The student rush experience is very easy — once you sign up for tickets, you can purchase them for between $15-25 on the morning of any game via text alerts.

Wander the Museum and Art Scene

For those into art and museum days, Pittsburgh has a lot of great options. Right in the heart of Oakland is the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History. Two museums housed in one building, there are thousands of works to look at, from dinosaur skeletons to Greek marble sculptures. The Andy Warhol Museum and the Mattress Factory are on the North Shore and Northside, respectively, and are local favorites with so much inspiration for your Instagram pics. As a Pitt student, I also can’t leave out Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and its unique walkthrough experience. Phipps is just a short walk from the Carnegie Museums and a favorite date spot for a lot of my friends.

Explore Downtown

You haven’t truly experienced Pittsburgh until you take a walk and wander around Downtown a little. Point State Park is an amazing place to take a walk with a 360-degree view of Downtown and each of Pittsburgh’s rivers. Market Square is a great place to eat in the middle of Downtown, with plenty of restaurant options and tons of seats in the middle of the square.

Two of my favorite spots in Pittsburgh are the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines on Mt. Washington. Both have breathtaking views of Downtown Pittsburgh that are unique to our city.

Uncover New Food Spots

As much as I love to stay in Oakland and grab a bite at CHiKN or STACK’D, a lot of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods have really cool food options. Squirrel Hill is one of my favorite city neighborhoods and has a lot of cool little restaurants. Most notably are two of my favorite pizza places, Mineo’s Pizza House and Aiello’s Pizza, just steps away from each other on Murray

Avenue. A ton of the city’s best Asian food options are in the Shadyside neighborhood. And the Strip District is a Pittsburgh food staple, with all its unique markets and shops, not to mention the original Primanti Bros. Pittsburgh has so much to explore, and just about everything for anyone’s taste. I think Pittsburgh is an awesome place for college students because there is nothing like our city and our ever-changing culture. Our city is friendly, unique, great for sports and always innovating. I can’t wait to see the continued impact that the students of Pittsburgh will have on the city.

PITTSBURGH, We HaveLiftoff!

Commencing final countdown to fun. As the United States returns to the moon for the first time in 50 years, Pittsburgh has emerged as a pivotal city helping to shape the future of space travel with aerospace, robotics and tech companies popping up throughout the city.

If we’re going to get back to the Moon and reach Mars, however, we’re going to need the workforce to make it happen. That’s why a brand-new museum and expansive exhibit have now opened in Pittsburgh focused on career readiness and inspiring visitors to imagine themselves as pioneers in space exploration.

Let’s start at our nearest neighbor, the Moon. Moonshot Museum, opened in Oct. 2022, is Pennsylvania’s first space museum and the only museum in the world to focus solely on career readiness for the modern space industry.

Walking into Moonshot, guests realize this is a museum in name only. The focus here is hands-on, interactive experiences where visitors control the mission. Help solve real-world problems of a lunar rover by picking the right combination of power, sensors and equipment to drill through ice on the Moon. Then, hover over a responsive map of the Moon to identify the best spot for your lunar lander to touch down.

It isn’t all science and tech, either. Moonshot’s programming activates a wide variety of learners to solve political disputes on the Moon, use their design skills to project a mission patch and more. There’s even a spot to write messages that will be scanned and taken to the Moon on a future mission.

The best part of Moonshot? It’s attached to Astrobotic, a Pittsburghbased space company actively

assembling lunar landers and their payloads. Visitors can peer through floor-to-ceiling windows which allow an unparalleled view into a realtime space mission in Astrobotic’s clean room.

Next, let’s travel 300 million miles via the Carnegie Science Center and its newest exhibit, Mars: The Next Giant Leap. The Center’s largest experience added since 1991, this 7,400-squarefoot exhibit tackles sustainability, climate change and social justice as they relate to space exploration.

Within the exhibit, guests can experience what life would look like on the red planet and the challenges of growing foods, developing settlements and prioritizing scarce resources. They’ll also hear from different voices on the future of Mars and Earth and be tasked with voting on how to proceed with difficult issues. Most importantly, guests of all ages will once again be able to envision themselves in space careers that go way beyond astronauts and rocket scientists.

There’s a new space race going on in Pittsburgh to have enough talented individuals to fuel future space travel, and these two forward-thinking museums are the key to developing career readiness and a wonder of space travel from a young age.

Pittsburgh InternationalAirport

The gateway to Western Pennsylvania opens a world of possibilities.

In 2022, J.D. Power rated the customer experience at Pittsburgh International Airport one of the best in the U.S., the latest high-profile accolade the airport has received, following nods in recent years from Fast Company, Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast and numerous industry groups.

Pittsburgh International features an impressive mix of international brand stores and locally renowned products, giving travelers a strong sense of Western Pennsylvania culture while offering shopping and dining options that are beloved around the world.

As the “front door” to a region that has developed a world-class technology sector, Pittsburgh International has embraced innovation in its terminals, partnering with companies on the cutting edge of their industries. From plant-powered air filtration to robots that deliver food to gates, the airport is constantly looking to reinvent and upgrade the passenger experience while investing in the growth of its community.

The airport is also a pioneer in sustainability. A first-of-itskind microgrid fueled by natural gas and solar panels gives the facility all the electricity it needs - and a blueprint for our entire industry.

Add in an award-winning arts and culture program and ever-growing air service options, and it’s clear that Pittsburgh International Airport is the premier gateway to Western Pennsylvania.

Ground broke on the new 700,000-square-foot terminal in Oct. 2021, with an anticipated opening date of 2025. Key design features include large outdoor terraces and touchless processes. Operations including ticketing, baggage handling, security, ground transportation and concessions will be consolidated and streamlined for a post-pandemic world. And the region’s commitment to sustainability will be evident throughout the construction and operation of the new terminal, with an aim to comply with LEED® Silver certification.
