Pittsburgh Tours, Sightseeing and Attractions

As the second largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh features numerous cultural attractions. During the 19th and 20th centuries, wealthy business people and private organizations donated millions of dollars to the development of the arts, making the Steel City a Mecca for those wanting to enjoy art and culture. Professional music venues include the Pittsburgh Opera, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Benedum Center and Heinz Hall. Art galleries and museums are also found in abundance here and provide both tourists and local residents with some of the best things to do in Pittsburgh.

The Andy Warhol Art Museum is located in Pittsburgh as well as the Carnegie Museum of Art. The city also hosts a quarterly gallery crawl that the public is welcome to participate in for free. Each participant is provided with a map of area galleries, and refreshments are offered at various spots along the way. Whether you're a tourist or are visiting Pittsburgh for business reasons, this is a fun way to get to know a little about the city and take part in a local event.

Attractions in Pittsburgh include many bridges within its city limits. Three major rivers run through the city, making numerous bridges necessary and earning it the nickname of the City of Bridges. Some of the top Pittsburgh tours visit these bridges, so be sure to ask us here at Expedia about Pittsburgh excursions that will show you some of the city's 446 bridges.

Sports fans will also find no shortage of Pittsburgh activities. Pittsburgh was designated "The Best Sports City" in 2009 by the publication "Sporting News." Sports teams include the Steelers, the Penguins, and the Pirates, who represent football, hockey, and baseball respectively.
