I am bringing my wife to the Burgh for her first time. I have been a few times and done the usual, been to Primanti's, gone to the strip district, station square. We are coming for five days this time, and what are some good things to go and see and do??

i just got back several weeks ago. everytime i go i do the typical tourist stuff. heres a thread with some ideas and some pictures it took. if youre there for sightseeing you wont get any better pictures than from the

-top of the inclines.
-station square and the clipper docking station.
-the gateway clipper itself (you have to plan accordingly for these boat rides) theres different tours and the 1 we wanted was sold out on saturday.
-and of course the view of the city from the stadiums.
-if your into tha art stuff and a fan of warhol, his museum is must see.
-if your their in november i would definitely go to see the openning of the new dinosaur hall in carnegie. its said that it wil be one of the finest (if not the finest) dinosaur exhibit in the world. while there walk down to "the O" for a hotdog and some fries. a small order of fries is enough for 4. you practically need 2 trays to carry the large order. and they sell beer too!

good stuff, and enjoy!

Are you a movie buff?

- Go to the Monroeville Mall. It's where they filmed Dawn of the Dead
