Things to Do & Dining

Pittsburgh is a city with a hometown feel that is as historic as it is quirky with an unmatched food scene.

Things to Do

You’ll quickly find that there is no shortage of interesting and engaging attractions, activities and fun. Pittsburgh has several unique must-sees and must-dos during your time here.

Duquesne Incline

One of the most notable features of the Pittsburgh skyline is, of course, the Duquesne Incline. This iconic and historic funicular is one of the few left in the country and operates as a form of transportation up and down Mount Washington as well as a unique sightseeing opportunity for tourists. The view from the top of Mount Washington has been named one of the “10 Most Beautiful Views in America,” according to USA Today, and with good reason. The natural beauty of the region is perfectly highlighted with bright yellow bridges that connect all parts of the city, the fountain at the aptly named Point and several note-worthy sky scrapers.

The Andy Warhol Museum

Pittsburgh is home to The Andy Warhol Museum, one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world. Did you know that the famed advertising creative turned visual artist and originator of the pop art movement, was a Pittsburgh native? An international draw to the city, this museum can be found on Pittsburgh’s North Shore just at the end of the Andy Warhol Bridge, also referred to as the Seventh Street Bridge. There you’ll find seven floors dedicated to the life and legacy of a true Pittsburgh icon, including interactive exhibits, a café and gift shop, and plenty of soup cans. 

PNC Park

Home to the Pittsburgh Pirates, PNC Park is a beautiful venue located on the North Shore of the Allegheny River. It is one of the country’s smallest ballparks, but it’s designed to leave an impression. The skyline view from home plate is spectacular and is viewable from almost any seat in the park. The Pirates’ deep roots in the city’s sports history have a clear influence on the design, while the progressive and forward-thinking Pittsburgh character guides the player and fan experience.

Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History

Two of Pittsburgh’s four prestigious Carnegie Museums conveniently share a building in the Oakland neighborhood. The Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History are an absolute must for any Pittsburgh visit. Not only can you explore more than 30,000 pieces of traditional and contemporary art ranging from paintings and sculptures to video and digital imagery, but you can also check out a large and diverse collection of artifacts, objects and scientific.

National Aviary 

Located on Pittsburgh’s North Shore is the National Aviary, America’s only independent indoor nonprofit zoo dedicated entirely to birds. The beautiful facility offers visitors opportunities to meet several species of bird face-to-face. It features large walk-through exhibits, where free-flying birds can be hand-fed and have up-close experiences with guests. The National Aviary is truly unique and not to be missed.


Pittsburgh’s booming food scene is unmatched. From small neighborhood dives, to upscale fine dining and international cuisine, searching for dining options is easy, choosing between the delicious and diverse possibilities is not.
