The Strip District, Pittsburgh

4.4
#2 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Pennsylvania
Antique purveyors, outdoor food vendors, and craft stalls line the streets in The Strip District, one of Pittsburgh's liveliest neighborhoods. The area originated as a bustling factory district in the early 19th century. Today many of the warehouses have been converted into small artisanal shops. Attracting serious foodies, the market boasts a variety of inexpensive ethnic grocers, selling everything from fresh pasta to Asian delicacies. Of particular note is the St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, one of the city’s oldest churches built in 1891 and a prime example of the ornate Polish Cathedral style. The market is busiest on the weekend, but if you want to avoid the crowds, it stays open throughout the week.

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.
