Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
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.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.

  • Really nice park once you've found your seats. THE SIGNS ARE CONFUSING AS H-E-Double Hockey Sticks!! I've been to dozens of stadiums and arenas and never had this problem. Important note before you continue- there were four of us adults, each of whom did not consume a drop of alcohol and were entirely mentally present, that together shared this issue. We visited for the U2 show and our seats were in section 220. The signs above our heads indicated to turn left for something like 227-229 or right for 202-204 (I'm making that up because I don't remember the exact signage. We asked four different ushers who sent us back and forth up and down on an actual wild goose chase to find our seats. I'm embarrassed to admit we circled the stadium 5 times to find our seats and missed the entire set by the Lumineers simply trying to locate our seats. Oh, Ophelia :( It was a mixture of poor instruction by the staff and horribly vague seating signage. Stadium food is what it is. Otherwise- the positives are the location is great and right off the free T stop is also cool. Once we got settled it was nice. Oh and one more thing- there were bright overhead lights above our seats that made it hard to enjoy the concert and feel engaged. Ushers: we found our seats with or without you (mostly without!!)
  • I saw U2 here and everything was really orderly getting in. They could have had a few more doors open after the concert. The food was what is to be expected at a football stadium. Okay and expensive but worth it. The seating is great here and I had an all around great experience.
  • I loved it! The tour guides are funny and very kind. It is very interesting to learn about the background of Heinz Field. You can walk in to the locker rooms for the NFL and college teams. Kids would love the tour.
  • The facility is kept clean. The contractor staff is very helpful and works hard to serve good food and drink. Awesome venue for shows. Especially U2. Great night.
  • Took our family on a tour. My husband is a lifelong steelers fan. For him this was such a great experience. The whole family enjoyed the tour. The guide was very informative & knowlegable. The tour was well organized & even our 6 year old enjoyed it.
