A Country Girl Can Survive | Country Concert Itinerary

As Shania Twain once said, “Let’s Go Girls!”

The list of top-charting country artists making a stop in Pittsburgh this year is unmatched! If you’re planning to attend one (or a few) of your favorite country artists’ shows and want to add a little Boot Scootin’ Boogie to your visit, here are a few of our favorite spots on the North Shore for pre- and post-concert fun.

Looking to participate in a little heel, toe, do-si-do? 💃

Hit the dance floor at Tequila Cowboy or McFadden’s! Both located on North Shore Drive, and just a short walk away from concert hotspots Acrisure Stadium and Stage AE, these spots are sure to put your dancing shoes (or should we say boots) to the test. And, when you get the choice, to sit it out or dance...

Long neck ice cold beer never broke your heart? 🍺

Your red solo cup will never be empty on the North Shore! Home to a plethora of breweries including 412 Brewery, Voodoo, Southern Tier and the beloved Mike's Beer Bar – any and all of these places are the perfect place for a pre or post-concert cold one.

Do you like your chicken fried? 🍗

Fuel up for a night with your favorite country music artists. Hit up Federal Galley if you’re a group who likes options, North Shore Tavern for their signature steak on a stone or The Foundry for their unmatched menu and happy hour specials.

Know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em? 🎰

Whether you're the rambler, the gambler or the back biter of the group, Rivers Casino is your one-stop shop for entertainment before and after the concert. Featuring 2,400 slots, 100+ table games, a Sportsbook, five restaurant concepts and their own live entertainment, there's fun for every member of your rodeo here.

Want to party in slow motion out here in the open? 🌊

BYOB and snacks then head out onto our three rivers with Pittsburgh Party Pontoons. Book the pontoon for a relaxed float with bar-style seating or stay active with their pedal boats where you provide the power.

Are you an eagle when you fly? 🦅

There's no way I was ending this blog before getting in a Dolly Parton reference. If your heart's as soft as feathers, check out the National Aviary, just a short walk from North Shore concert destinations and with more than 500 birds from around the world, including the popular eagles, flamingoes, penguins and more.
