Mt. Washington and the Inclines
A visit to Pittsburgh is not complete without riding the restored 1800’s inclines going to Mt. Washington, which is across the river on downtown Pittsburgh. On top of this former “Coal Hill” are a number of wonderful restaurants to dine, and it has one of the most amazing views especially during thenight of downtown Pittsburgh which was ranked as the second most amazing place in the United States. If you want to capture that perfect skyline photo, then this place is best.
Carnegie Museum of Art
The first collections of the museum were initiated by Andrew Carnegie in 1886, focusing on modern art. The museum’s galleries display works of arts by artists like Cassatt, Hopper, Degas and Van Gough.

Make sure to also view the amazing marble hall of sculpture, which was based on the Parthenon. Admission to the Carnegie Museum of Art includes admission to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
The famous Strip District is located on the Allegheny River at the Golden Triangle’s northeastern corner was used to be filled by railroads and warehouses; however, today it’s become one of the main tourist spot of the city and a place of vibrant activity. The District is a place for art, dining, shopping and various markets to buy meat, produce, and other foods. Tourists can visit here and just enjoy the food or simply spend the day visiting the different shops. Saturdays are the busiest day here but is also a fun time.
Senator John Heinz History Center
This place was formerly an ice house and was renovated to become a seven-story museum that has interactive shows of the 250 years of history of Western Pennsylvania. Here you can discover how the immigrants molded the region, reveal the Underground Railroad’s myths or ride the 1940s Pittsburgh trolley. There are two floors solely dedicated to the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum.
The National Aviary
Crossing the Allegheny River from the History Center is where you can find the National Aviary. They have more than 600 incredible birds on display in exhibits with natural backgrounds and walk-through environments. Enjoy huge hummingbirds ranging the size of a thumb or the Andean Condors who has 10 feet of wingspan. And their most popular show is the Penguin Point.

This single artist museum has over 4,000 artworks which included films, photographs, drawings, prints, paintings and videos from the Andy Warhol who was a native of Pittsburgh. Though it is dedicated to Andy Warhol, the museum also plays host to rotating shows by various artists who go beyond the limits of art, just like what Warhol did.
