Things to see in Downtown Pittsburgh
Market Square, a buzzing public space housing cafés, restaurants, and trendy watering holes, attracts office workers at lunchtime, schoolkids in the afternoon, and twentysomething partiers at night. A few blocks away, Point State Park is a perfect retreat for nature lovers. Walking or hiring a bike and cycling through the park to view where the city’s 3 rivers meet is a Pittsburgh must. To soak up some history and learn how the city went from a steel-producing industrial center to a leading technological hub, head to the Senator John Heinz History Center, the largest history museum in the state of Pennsylvania. Later, catch a show at the intimate Benedum Center in the Cultural District, and grab a drink at one of the nearby bars to see the best of what this newly revitalized area has to offer.
Good for art lovers
When the sun goes down, Downtown’s energy shifts away from the office blocks and onto its famed Cultural District. The area’s 6 theaters—the most famous being Benedum Center and Heinz Hall—offer over 1,500 shows a year, ranging from musicals to drama to ballet performances. As the birth place of Andy Warhol, it’s also fitting that the city is home to a number of renowned art galleries, particularly around Penn and Liberty Avenues. The nearby Agnes R. Katz plaza often delights art enthusiasts with open-air art exhibitions and concerts next to its bronze fountain and eyeball-shaped benches.
