Hey mate,

Went out there from London last year for 2 games going again this year and its a great place to check out, I would advise seeing the Warhol museum, tailgate, Steelers game, depending when you travel check out if they are doing tours of Heinz Field. Try and see either the Pengs or the Pirates as both are great to see. Enjoy the fact that your part of Steelers nation at the tailgate though its an amazing place it lives on Black and Gold.....cant wait to get back out there in December!!!

Yeah, definitely get a Primanti sandwich and actually, take a walk around the Strip District while you're there, it's a nice place to visit. Lots of shops, a few bars, etc.

Station Square is also really nice, and the fountain show is fun to see. Lot of shopping and a nice view of Pittsburgh at night. You can also take a Duck tour out of there and that is an experience :)

You MUST do the incline. There is the Duquesne incline down the road a bit from station square, and there is also another incline in Station Square I believe but Duquesne is my personal favorite and there's a museum when you get to the top that has a lot of Pittsburgh history. (Do the incline at night too)
