I’ve been telling everyone that will listen that I’m gearing up for my first trip to New York City. I’ve been looking for restaurant, shopping, and attraction recommendations from friends, and even strangers. It got me wondering what kind of suggestions I would give people visiting Pittsburgh. What is there to do here? What is there to see, and eat? As I crafted and plotted a Google map of all my favorite places in the city, and outside of it, I realized this could be a helpful resource for travelers, but also for people new to the city that don’t have a clue where to begin.
The “Getting to Know Pittsburgh” series will include five (possibly six) installments each tackling a different area of Pittsburgh life, each in its own post.
Fair warning, the lists are extensive, as I’m trying to be comprehensive. But even with my 24 years of experience, there’s always gaps in knowledge. Know of a place I missed, or a place I should try? Leave my a note in the comments; I’m always up for looking into something new.
Here’s the best part, I’ve started a separate blog for this series! Check it out over at www.gettingtoknowpgh.wordpress.com.
