  • Market Square is usually a pretty good place to go out for a night - bars, restaurants, all located around a nice walking area. In December, it turned awesome. A great market with dozens of vendors se...  more »
  • Beautiful place on Christmas season, with a Christmas market and may German-style stores, plus hot chocolate.  more »
  • Attended the Christmas shops in the square as well as looked at the tree and watched the skaters. Ate at Primanti's, which is always good.  more »

  • One of the best happening spots in Downtown, especially during holidays. The tallest Christmas tree in town is in the middle of the ice rink. Lots of people. It feels like a scene from the movie when you get there during holidays. Lots of restaurants and quick food options around. And the night market has unique collection of items. It’s fun to stroll around and find nice gifts. Very good friends & family gathering spot in the center of downtown.
  • We had so much fun. Lots of places to eat, great restaurants everywhere. We enjoyed looking around at all the little shops in the area. The whole family had a great time. Would highly recommend.
  • I love coming to this part of Pittsburgh. In the summer there's great outdoor seating, and in the winter there is a pretty cool Christmas market here. Lots of food options (I highly recommend The Simple Greek for delicious, quick food, and Prantl's for great pastries), and it's a good place to sit and chat with a friend. Finding parking can be a bit of a challenge, especially on a weekend, but there's a parking garage nearby if you're willing to spend the money on that.
  • If you're visiting Pittsburgh this is a must. Lots of restaurants to choose from. During the summer they do a farmer market every Thursday, and during the holiday season they build a small "Santa village" with craft shops and free pictures with Santa for the kids!
  • The Holiday Market at Market Square is gorgeous. Lots of great vendors. The Pittsburgh Food Bank is partnered with the Downtown Partnership to raise money via photos with Santa at the Santa House. Incredible light show to music involving buildings around the square including PPG Place. Goes on until Dec. 23.

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.
