Don't Come to Lawrenceville if You Just Want to Sit Around

Lawrenceville is one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, so you’ll be hard-pressed to fit all there is to do in Larryville into just one day. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it — and that someone is you. Buckle up and get ready for one busy day.

The Surprising Things You Can Do on Pittsburgh's South Side

Your homebody friends may think that East Carson Street is just for early-20s party animals — but you know better. Sure, there are a few rowdy hours each Friday and Saturday night. But the South Side is a neighborhood for leisure, food and fitness.

Oakland: Diverse, Delightful and Delicious

Oakland: an eclectic mix of business and healthcare professionals, educators and college students. When you spend a day here, you’ll be mingling with a diverse crowd of people.

Pittsburgh's Northside: So Much to Eat, Drink, See and Do

The North Side of Pittsburgh is a quiet neighborhood, home to historic buildings, local businesses and nationally-lauded institutions. For a perspective of the city you may have never seen, spend a day in this storied neighborhood.

There are Endless Options in Pittsburgh's Cultural District

The Cultural District is appropriately named. From state-of-the-art theaters to French bakeries to historical tours, Pittsburgh’s Downtown is full of culture — and a great place to spend some time.

Appreciate the Past and Marvel at the Present in East Liberty

East Liberty is equal parts historic and modern, with new hotspots nestling against longstanding buildings. Come for the culture and architecture, stay for the hot restaurants and trendy shops.

The Wild, Wonderful Hubub of the Strip District

Strip District foot traffic, particularly on Saturday mornings, can reach epic proportions. If you’re down to get into the mix, perhaps even purchase some of the ubiquitous black and gold sports gear, you’re in the right place — but you can also seek a little bit of refuge in an otherwise boisterous neighborhood.

Bloomfield: Bocce, Burgers and a Killer Turkey Devonshire

Located in the heart of the East End, Bloomfield might still lay claim as Pittsburgh’s “Little Italy,” but the neighborhood today reflects a range of communities and interests.

Squirrel Hill Has Something For Everyone

With a diverse mix of housing, a thriving and eclectic business district and access to the greenery of sprawling parks, there’s good reason why Squirrel Hill has long been a jewel of the East End.

Shadyside: Vintage Clothes, Pet Outfits and Amazing Sushi

Shadyside has multiple commercial districts (think Walnut Street and Highland Avenue), but Ellsworth Avenue has always been the quirky sibling of those thoroughfares.

Regent Square: Come for the Art, Stay for the Chorizo Bowl

Portions of Regent Square lie within Pittsburgh, Edgewood, Swissvale and Wilkinsburg, but the neighborhood is more defined by its sense of community than its geographic boundaries.

Mount Washington: The View is Just the Beginning

People go to Mount Washington for the views and stay for the hospitality of the people who staff the many bars, restaurants and shops.

Thomas Town: Ride the Rails in Kennywood's New Spot

At Kennywood Park, Thomas the Tank Engine arrives to revitalize the railroad — and, hopefully, to foster a new generation of Kennywood lovers.

The Fishing Tournament Where Everyone Catches Something

The annual Ross Township Fishing Tournament, now in its 22nd year, draws hundreds of anglers of all ages.
