Heinz Field, Pittsburgh
Categories: Tourist Spots, Arenas & Stadiums
Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field opened in 2001 and offers views of football, the city's many bridges, the downtown district, and the riverfront. Taking its name from the locally based H.J. Heinz Company, the field features a giant scoreboard flanked with 11 m (35 ft) of neon Heinz ketchup bottles, which virtually pour onto the screen. The stadium itself is made with over 10.9 million kg (12,000 tons) of steel, as a nod to the city's steel production heritage. When you enter through Gate B, you'll find The Great Hall, which celebrates the city's rich history of football, including memorabilia and historical artifacts. Make sure you check out the great selection of award-winning food vendors.

Visiting Heinz Field for a Steeler game is an amazing experience. The Tailgating experience is bar none. Downsides: can only bring in plastic, unopened water bottles and bags must be clear, so no trad... read more »

Who doesn't love Heinz Field! We have been to other stadiums and they do not compare. The lower level is a museum showing all the Super Bowl trophies and "lockers" of previous players. Fun to look at ... read more »

Very nice atmosphere and a nice breeze on a warm day that blows in off of the rivers. The food is great and a great view from whithin watching Football.
Took the tour with out of town friends. We all thought the tour was excellent and very informative. Bob our guide was great and knew all the answers to the groups questions. Recommend this to all sports fans whether they are a member of Steeler Nation or not.
Took our kids to their first Steeler's game, the pre-season opener against the Lions. We had a great time! Only reason for a 4-star review is the cost. We had tickets given to us by some friends, but with parking costs anywhere from $30-$65 to be anywhere within 10 minutes walk of the stadium, food & drink costs what you would expect for an NFL venue, I don't see how even a middle-income family could attend one of these games. With ticket cost factored in, and just waters & nachos (we ate before we came to the game) for food, and cost of parking, it would've been over a $400 trip! I would like to see incentives to bring middle and lower income households out to the games, I just don't see how it would be feasible at the current cost.
Best stadium ever been in. Great environment, grea food. Best games. Croud involvement is cool they keep u pumped and real into game so good
Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pitt Panthers, Heinz field is a great venue to watch a sporting event. With two scoreboards, everyone has a view. The great hall is a one of a kind showcase of the teams proud heritage and heros.
