No matter what might bring you to Pittsburgh; you'll enjoy the Waterfront Complex, built on the former Bethlehem Steel Works. Here, you will find shopping opportunities, restaurants, a water park and a movie theater to keep you entertained. If you are a sports enthusiast, the Three River area hosts two professional sports stadiums; Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and PNC Park, home of the Pirates. Take time to visit these stadiums and catch a game if the timing is right. Head up to Mount Washington located south of downtown, and ride an original cable car up the Duquense incline, where you’ll be able to see the city skyline from above.
If you fly to this Pennsylvania city, you will arrive at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). PIT is west of the city and has taxis, rentals, shuttles and buses to get to the downtown area. If you're staying in a hotel downtown, you can walk to many places and save on parking fees or cab fare. There are many quality hotels in city center, near sites like the Carnegie Science Center and Point State Park.
Once a steel and coal center in the United States, Pittsburgh is now known worldwide for technology, culture, education and biotechnology. The city is also known for home-style cooking in its many excellent restaurants.
