  • This is your typical tourist destination. But we were pleased by the openness of the area, and the convenience of access. You pay to park, but everything is a short walk from the parking. There are the typical restaurants you'll find at every tourist spot, but the market was rather enjoyable, and the open-air space was lovely. We enjoyed watching/listening to the dancing fountains and music. We also picked up our Just Ducky Tour from here. After returning from the tour, we ate and shopped, then we strolled and took in the scenery and views on a beautiful day.
  • We rode the horse drawn carriage to The Melting Pot where we celebrated granddaughter's graduation. The selections are fantastic. The appetizer is 3 different bowls of cheese blends and raw veggies and artisan bread cubes. The main course has 3 different pots for dipping meat and more raw veggies. Dessert is 3 chocolate sauces with fruit and cake cubes to dip. It takes at least 2 hours, so don't be in a hurry if enjoying a meal there.
  • I loved the part where I got TOTALLY DRENCHED by the fountain. The music was excellent: both 80s and 90s and pop music. This is a great place to spend the day or even a few hours. The kids can run in the fountain's stream of water while the parents can chill out and sing or hum some tunes from the 80s and 90s. Bessemer court is a great place to spend the day for both kids and parents.
  • A touristy area but still fun. Many city tours are based here. You get a good view of the city from the riverfront. Many shops and restaurants as well. The old blast furnace on display was neat to see.
  • Great place to eat. Plenty of food selections, love it! :) Only problem is for those who want to shop for clothing. Unless you want something sports related, you're better going to South Hills Village or even Ross Park Mall. Station square really doesn't sell clothes, even though it is considered a shopping center. Kind of dull at times but I like it. And I a, looking forward to the expansion across the street in the summer of 2017 and the major renovations that will take place in the shopping center in late 2017 or early 2018. I think it will bring new life and I can't wait to see what they do to the shopping center and the surrounding complex. :)

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.
