Thanks for the input everyone. I'm still researching, so all of your help is appreciated.

I am in the same boat as klick81. My best friend and I are coming down from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This is all good advice. I can use all the help I can get as I have NEVER been to pittsburgh. I am dying to go to this opener VS the titans. We are flying in on the tuesday and thinking of staying in downtown pittsburgh not far from the staduium. We are going to see the pirates, tour heinz feild, take in the game and tour Pitt university. We are leaving saturday. Please I need as much info as we can get on sites, sounds and ESPECIALLY Tailgaiting before the game. Thanks in advance. Hey Klick81 maybe if we meet up I will buy you a beer.

My wife and I are doing our first trip to Pittsburgh to watch the Steeler/Viking game. Been a fan since 1972 and I'm as excited as a kid in a candy store. I booked our hotel thru Hotwire, scary cuz you don't know the name of the hotel until you pay. I'm happy with the results got the Renaissance for $85 a night.

Klick-

Try Hotwire, as well. I landed the Omni William Penn for $65/night on New Year's Eve a few years back. If you book long enough in advance, you can get some deals.

I'd recommend avoiding New Stanton. It's pretty much a tiny little highway town in the middle of nowhere in Westmoreland County...about 45 minutes from downtown. Coming from LA, you'll probably be bored to tears and you really won't be close enough to enjoy the city.

If you're not picky about accomodations, there's a Days Inn on Banksville Rd. that's only about 10 minutes from downtown and should be fairly reasonable. Not the most aesthetically pleasing area, but totally safe.

That's easy...the Parkway West. When you leave the airport, take 60/376 East and follow the signs for downtown. You'll then merge onto 279/376 East and that'll take you directly through the Ft. Pitt Tunnels. When you come out of the tunnels, you'll see Heinz Field across the river. Keep left onto the Ft. Duquesne bridge and follow the exit to the stadium.
