      Hi all. I'm planning a stay in Pittsburgh to visit my nephew at Carnegie Mellon. I've narrowed the hotels down to the Hilton Garden Inn in Oakland and the Marriott Courtyard in Shadyside (don't ask me about my winnowing criteria). Anyone familiar with these neighborhoods or hotels to help me tip the balance one way or another? Thanks much.

      We're traveling to PIttsburgh with another couple and our/their children for a weekend getaway. Planning on going to the zoo, aviary, conservatory and possibly the children's museum. Looking for a hotel that won't break the bank. we are driving ourselves, and don't mind being outside of the city. We'd love a hotel with an indoor pool, connecting rooms and maybe a small table so the adults can sit and have a glass of wine/beer after we put the kids to bed! Recommendations on an area to look or specific hotel?

      I'm looking for a hotel with a view, and NOT one of the big vertical slabs downtown. Someplace in the city, with all those bluffs overlooking the rivers, there should be a small hotel or B&B with a nice view and fewer than 1000 guests. Any suggestions?

      I will be coming to Pittsburg for the steelers and ravens game in October. I have never been to Pittsburgh before, the hotel I will be staying at has a shuttle from the airport. I am trying to decide if I should rent a car or not, but I dont want to be in a long traffic wait for the game. Should I rent a car or just use public transportation? Also what would be a good time to leave my hotel to get to the game in a timely and traffic avoiding manner? Thanks for any advice.

      I will be in Pittsburgh a few hours, will it be possible for me to go up one of the inclines from a view of the city? How long would it take to get there, go up, admire the view, and go back down?

      Also, which is the best incline to go up? Is there a significant difference in the view?

      Moving to Pittsburgh

      by lizzytex Online Now Nov 2, 2011 at 10:38 AM

      I just found out there is a strong possibility that my husband (and us!) may have to relocate to Pittsburgh. I have never been and know nothing about it, so obviously will be reading a lot on the web. One thing I'm not sure about as I start looking for places to live is the neighborhoods: what are the "good" neighborhoods and which ones should we stay away from? I'd love something a little historic or possibly a neighborhood with restaurants and shops within walking distance. Thanks!!

      Hi All!

      My boyfriend and I will be visiting Pittsburgh for the first time from May 22 - 24. We'll probably only actually have a couple of days in the city as we'll be spending time with family on the Saturday. Any suggestions on things to do and the best places to eat? We are big into food so suggestions for all meals would be great! We love to walk and explore, I'm big into photography when I travel and like I mentioned, food is always good.

      I was thinking of hitting up the Pittsburgh flea market on the Sunday morning. Is it worth the trip (I'm into neat finds and antiques).

      Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

      Pittsburg for 1/2 day

      Hello all,

      My sister and I might be in Pittsburgh for half-day this Saturday. We've never been to Pittsburgh before. I was thinking about going to Station square and doing duck tours and riding up the incline to Mount Washington. Little about ourselves: we like taking walks, beautiful scenery, architecture, quite towns and good food. I have several questions:

      Can we walk from Station square to the incline?
      Can anyone suggest any good places for lunch (no chains)

      We would prefer to park and just walk around. Are any good walks in that area?

      Thank you again

      I know this is a longshot, but I'll try anyway. Do any Steelers fans know of anyone who wishes to sell tickets to the Pittsburgh - Dallas game on December 7th ? Are there bars in Pittsburgh where fans drop off tickets for sale ? This is for a friends wife, who is a Steelers fan. They have tickets now, but they are not very good ones at all. Since they'll be flying in from Missouri, I'd want them to be able to see the game. Gary
