Pittsburgh From Above

A unique view of Pittsburgh through a Drone's eye!

 

What’s happening in the ‘Burgh?

Many of you will be arriving early and staying for a few days after the reunion. If you haven’t been in town for a few years, you will find many new sights and opportunities.

Browse www.visitpittsburgh.com for directions, schedules and phone numbers to all of the suggested activities below and hundreds more.

  • Feel like riding a Gateway Clipper Fleet paddlewheel boat? Or maybe you’d like to tour the city on a WWII amphibious vehicle or a Molly’s Trolley. For the more energetic, how about touring the city on a Segway, visiting city and county parks, or perhaps enjoying the breath taking view of the city after riding the Duquesne or Station Square incline.
  • Weeks would be required to visit all of Pittsburgh's museums. There are 4 Carnegie Museums; the Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History, both in Oakland, the Science Center and The Andy Warhol Museum, both on the north shore. The Frick Art and Historical Center is located in Point Breeze. The Rivers of Steel National Heritage area in Homestead shows us how our ancestors made Pittsburgh famous.
  • The Cultural District in downtown Pittsburgh (Sixth and Penn Avenues) contains 4 magnificent Theaters and many Galleries. There is also a popular dinner theater at the Crowne Plaza Hotel near South Hills Village. Some theaters are seasonal so check the websites for playbills.
  • The two casinos in the area are the Rivers Casino located on the North Side and the Meadows Racetrack and Casino located less than 20 miles south of Mt. Lebanon in Washington, PA.
  • Pittsburgh's restaurants and bars are steeped with local character and are located in many different neighborhoods. 
  • The South Side is always jumping and boasts some 50 eateries and bars.
