To many, Pittsburgh is a city built on steel and coal. However, today the city has turned into a vacation destination in its own right, offering up an exceptional blend of museums, historic sites, attractions and pro sporting events. If you are looking to find out what “The ‘burgh” has to offer, staying with Choice Hotels in Pittsburgh is a good place to start.
Our Pittsburgh, PA hotels make it easy to access these local attractions:
Pittsburgh has a rich sports history and an army of diehard fans devoted to the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates. Attending a game while in town provides plenty of excitement, and the views of the city overlooking the water from Heinz Field and PNC Park (home of the NFL’s Steelers and Major League Baseball’s Pirates, respectively) makes for an incredible atmosphere.
Founded in 1787, the University of Pittsburgh is well worth a visit. Take a campus tour of “Pitt” (as it is affectionately known) and see the Cathedral of Learning, the tallest educational building in the western hemisphere and second tallest in the world. Basketball fans can also watch the Division I Pitt Panthers play a game at the Petersen Events Center on campus.
The Carnegie Museum group composes the core of Pittsburgh’s cultural offerings. As the city’s largest cultural organization, this group of museums offers a little something for everyone. Fans of the visual arts will want to see the Andy Warhol Museum, which spotlights the works of America’s most influential modern artist, as well as the Carnegie Museum of Art’s great collection of classical and contemporary pieces. For an engaging educational experience, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and Carnegie Science Center should have what you are looking for.
The chic Shadyside should be a part of your visit to Pittsburgh. This hip neighborhood offers shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques and cafes by day, and bars and other nightlife hotspots once the sun goes down.
With so many things to do, it is clear that Pittsburgh is more than just a steel town these days. So if you are looking for Pittsburgh hotels, make sure to book your stay with Choice Hotels and enjoy your vacation.
