Known for its steep hills, wide rivers, and plentiful bridges, Pittsburgh might just be the prettiest city in the USA, but it isn't just its beauty that draws in 4 million annual visitors. The city is also home to an impressive array of museums, theatres, restaurants, sporting events, and historic architecture that give it an energetic and sophisticated atmosphere. One of America's best kept secrets, Pittsburgh holidays are ideal for those looking to enjoy an alternative and thriving city.
Pittsburgh is in the Eastern Time Zone (GMT-5) and Pittsburgh holidays can be enjoyed at any time of the year. However, warm temperatures mean late spring and summer are the most popular times to visit. Visitors during the winter months will still find plenty to do, but should be prepared for colder weather and snow. Pittsburgh is serviced by the Pittsburgh International Airport, which is located 20 minutes north of the city by car. Alternatively, the city can be reached from nearby cities by coach, train or car. Visitors will find that Pittsburgh is best explored on foot, though a good public transport system links downtown to other parts of the city.
One of the pleasures of Pittsburgh is its scenery, and every visitor should be sure to make the trip across the bridge to visit Mt Washington, a neighbourhood that offers the best views of the city and is reached via the Duquesne Incline cable car; a fun attraction in its own right.
Pittsburgh Steelers football team or Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team play regularly, and as locals are fanatic about their sports heritage, match days are a unique experience in the city. On a family day out, try Carnegie Museum, home to an excellent dinosaur exhibition. For a lunchtime snack visit Primanti Brothers - their sandwiches have been known as a local delicacy since 1933.
