You can enjoy all four seasons in Pittsburgh. If you like to ski and sled-ride, come in January and February. If your interests lean toward budding flowers and walks along the river, spring is for you. Love watersports and outdoor attractions? Then visit in the summer. Festivals, crisp air and football greet you in the fall and the holiday season in Pittsburgh is unmatched.

Just Look Up

You don't need the Weather Channel to know the forecast in downtown Pittsburgh. You can tell just be looking up at the Gulf Tower.

The tower is an art-deco skyscraper, a sort of mini-Empire State Building. The pyramid at the top illuminates colors at night according to weather conditions and can be seen for miles. If it's black and gold, you'll know that one of the city's pro teams just brought home a winner!
