South Side is a Pittsburgh neighborhood that contains more restaurants and bars than perhaps anywhere else in the city. It is bounded by Station Square on the west and extends 30 or more blocks to the east. On the north its boundary is the Monongahela river and it extends inland many blocks. The central artery is East Carson street on which most of the restaurants and bars are located. Historically the area was home to the mill workers for the steel mills that once lined the Monongahela river. Since most of these workers came from eastern Europe there is a European More...

The airport terminal is relatively More...
Pittsburgh is difficult for strangers to get around in because the roads go every which way, constrained by the rivers and hills. Many are one-way and nearly all are narrow, as they were laid out in the days of horse-and-buggy transportation. If you can afford it, take a taxi until you get used to it. If not, find where you want to go on the internet, call them, and get detailed directions. Failing that, use MapQuest or another of the online mapping services.
The Port Authority of Allegheny County runs an extensive bus service and you can use More...

It is situated at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, which meet to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh has a rich history and for its size an unusual array of cultural treasures. The main reason for this abundance is the wealth that was generated when Pittsburgh was More...
