You have to see all the SuperBowl trophies! This is a must! And just get there earlier enough to enjoy the stadium itself, it is a work of art.

Park at Station Square...take the Gateway Clipper across the river to the stadium!!!!

It's a sweet lil ride ...easier access (lets you off right at the opening of the stadium)

Thats a good idea especially early season! The Clipper is the best for nighttime pirates games

I have been gonna take the Clipper sometime just to do it but the huge lines have always turned me off. How long do you have to stand and wait AFTER the game?

Some better ideas to add to this from a former Mt. Washington resident:

Park up on Mt. Washington for free, take the incline down and then take the Clipper across....(They sell beer on the clipper but we always carried some in our pockets! )

Also, if you are looking for free parking close to the stadium, park on the North side (in the park right up from the old Clark building). IF you get there early enough, there are plenty of spots and it is a short walk to the stadium.

Just some thoughts.

If you leave early enough before the game to tailgate, then the lines aren't that long. THey can fill up after a game but they keep the boats running regularly.

Alright here is my Plan....DONT forget to bring a Silver and Black SHARPIE. Come into town early, Head to the STRIP to pick-up some Steelers gear and eat PRIMANTI Brothers. Then head back to the incline. Ride up and take a few photo's of the AWESOME city. Go park at Station square. Head over to the stadium on the Clipper. Head over and check out the sites outside, maybe even head over to where the players come in Gate A and get yourself a early autograph. Head into the stadium. Go directly to the GREAT HALL. Make sure you check out the Steelers Store and grab a mini or something to get signed Then after you drool over all the greatness head up to THE LUBE. Grab a bucket of wings and head to your seat. NOW ITS STEELER TIME. After the game, when they WIN. head out and STEELERS will sign. This will allow for the rush of the people riding back on the clipper to shorten. If your REAL lucky you may even get to sit and have a talk with Russ Grimm in the parking lot after. I have numerous times. But make sure you dont miss the boat!!! because then it's a cab. But worth it!!! WHAT COULD BE BETTER!!!!
