See a Game at PNC Park
Even if you aren’t a big baseball fan, going to PNC park is #1 on Trip Advisor’s Top Things to Do in Pittsburgh because of the park’s amazing city views, gourmet food options and accommodations – visitors say there isn’t a bad seat in the house. So before you write this off as something you don’t want to do, go for the view and maybe leave as a fan.
Visit Phipps Conservatory During the Holidays
Voted #2 place to visit on Trip Advisor’s Top Things to Do in Pittsburgh, this conservatory decks the plants (and the halls) for Christmas and New Years. Visitors say to go at night to enjoy the twinkling lights and ambiance. They do the holidays justice with dreamy exhibits featuring poinsettias, beautiful blown glass ornaments, decorated trees and Christmas lights. Visitors describe it as a “magical wonderland”.
Drive Up to Mount Washington at Sunset
Drive up to the Mount Washington vista at sunset for gorgeous views of the city and bridges. If you visit during the day you can see Heinz Field, PNC Park and the Ohio River. There are a few restaurants to hit up after you watch the sun drop. Reserve a seat by a window or enjoy drinks out on a patio overlooking the city.
Take Pictures on The Duquesne Incline
Take ride on a century-old cable car and take pictures of some of the best views of Pittsburgh. The Duquesne Incline has a rich history in the Pittsburgh area – learn about its rescue and restoration in the historic museum, plus snag a few cheesy souvenirs to send back to your family.
Visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
Great for adults and kids alike, this museum was rated the #5 Thing to Do in Pittsburgh by Trip Advisor. Visitors raved about the dinosaur and North American wildlife exhibits. This museum is home to some of the first dinosaurs that were mounted and displayed for the public. Note, the $20-something ticket will also get you into the art museum as well, so plan your day accordingly.
