    Going to Pittsburgh, what to do?

    My wife has a conference this week in Pittsburgh. I知 gonna tag along just to get away for a few days. I値l be on my own for most of the day Thursday and Friday while she痴 at the conference. Just looking for things to do in the area. We値l be staying downtown. I知 pretty much game for anything. Also any recommendations for good places to eat in the evening would be helpful.

    Also I値l have my Jeep, so if there痴 anywhere to go play in the dirt nearby, that would be nice.

    GTFO! Pittsburgh is many things but a dangerous city it is not.

    Damn, I have people off this week or I'd take a day off & show you around. Where are you staying downtown?

    The strip district is a pretty cool area with a bunch of shops & restaurants. You can walk all over the downtown area and check the sights out without worry. There's a lot of cool architecture in Pittsburgh if you're into that. One really nice museum that I love is the Heinz History Center https://www.heinzhistorycenter.org/. It's several stories tall and you can spend a lot of time there. IDK, there are a lot of sights to see, but not sure what you're after.

    As far as any close trails, I wish I could say there are, but most are a ways drive off.

    When we went to a penguins game we ate at a place the players go to, they had little liquor lockers if I recall and it was fine dining. No clue what it was called but we walked there from the stadium

    I'm not familiar with that place - I have to admit, I'm a casual hockey fan & don't know a lot of the player hangouts. I can say that after having shitty restaurant choices compared to pretty much every city in the US of A, Pittsburgh is not a full blown foodie town. There are excellent restaurants everywhere now.

    Great choice - that's an awesome hotel! One of the coolest in town

    If you don't mind walking you can get to the Strip district from there - it's probably 20 blocks or so.

    Gotta check out Union Station - it's the old train station and the rotunda is a work of art. It's on the same street as the OMNI - Grant St - probably 10 blocks or so. In fact, just walking up and down Grant Street will keep you occupied for a good part of the day.

    Are you there all day Friday?

About us
努ayoflife is a moniker that I致e been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
