Default Re: Pittsburgh Vacation Suggestions, Anyone?

These are just my opinions. If I was visiting our city.........
I would start off by having breakfast at Margies in McKees Rocks (best breakfast in Pittsburgh).
I would then go to the Western Pa. sports and history museum in the Strip District. This is a must in my opinion. Specially if your a Steeler fan.
Since your already in the Strip, I would hit the original Primanti Bros. for lunch.
Waterfront or Shadyside for shopping.
The Strip, South Side or Station square for bars and clubs.
PNC for a ball game.
Carnegie Museum in Oakland, Western Pa sports and history museum, Andy Warhold Museum or the Science Center for learning.

For dinner:
Great steak houses: Ruth Chris or Morton's.
Great Italian: My three personal favorite.....Tambelini's on 51 (others stink). Del's in Bloomfield. Lombardozzi's in Bloomfield.

There is also Kennywood amusement park. For a nice view of the city is Mount Washington. The Pittsburgh Zoo. As for Amish country, I believe Lancaster is your destination...lol. There are some nice bed and breakfasts north of Pittsburgh but I'm not aware of any in or around Pittsburgh. Sorry.

If you have any other questions, please ask and I will do my best to answer.
