Weekend in Pittsburgh

Must-see attractions and activities to experience during your time in Steel City.

Although its moniker and football team are named for its rich history in steel production, Pittsburgh’s industrial past has made way for a modern renaissance. Come expecting urban beauty, a celebration of diversity and a small-town feel that retains the traditions of the past while looking toward the future.

Point State Park

The perfect introduction to the city, Point State Park is located at the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers, known as the Golden Triangle. The scenic green space is a National Historic Landmark, remembered for its significance in the French and Indian War and other milestone struggles throughout the mid to late 18th century. It’s also known for having the nation’s tallest water fountain, spouting water up to 150-feet high!

On the Town

Head to the Strip District for a mile of mom-and-pop grocers, bakeries, restaurants and sidewalk vendors, ride the funiculars up the famous Pittsburgh inclines (the Monongahela Incline is the steepest in the country) and immerse yourself in pop art at the Andy Warhol Museum.

And don’t miss your chance to see inside the University of Pittsburgh’s 42-story Gothic Skyscraper, the Cathedral of Learning. Here you can take a self-guided tour of the Nationality Rooms, 31 classrooms designed by artists and architects that reflect different cultural periods, including Byzantine, Romanesque, Renaissance, Tudor and folk.
