How to Spend a Day in Pittsburgh

How to Spend a Day in Pittsburgh

After a heartbreaking Steelers loss in the playoffs this Sunday, I figured it was a great time to post about one of my favorite cities, Pittsburgh! Over the holidays, I went home to Ohio and my flight was through Pittsburgh. Before I left, my family drove up to the city and spent the day in Pittsburgh. We spent most of our time at the Warhol Museum. Andy Warhol is one of my favorite artists, and I was so excited to finally go to the museum! It only takes an hour or so to go through the whole thing, but they have so many amazing paintings and art from Warhol’s life!

Recently, Pittsburgh was named one of the top cities to travel to. Aside from my brief day this winter, I haven’t had the opportunity to spend much time in the city in recent years. Though, there are some things that just don’t change! My love of the city stems primarily from my family’s Steelers obsession, then the time I spent there in my childhood attending shows and dinners- my family loves the theatre! I also spent many days with my mom in the car driving an hour and a half to and from the city for ballet. First it was the summer intensive tryouts and then the first year I was accepted to Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s Summer Intensive, my mom drove me to Pittsburgh every single day that summer.

Pittsburgh holds a lot of fond memories for me, and there is so much to do in the city! Thoughts on sports teams aside, I love this place and honestly think the whole place is beautiful! Plus the iconic yellow bridges are amazing to look out on when you’re having dinner at the top of the hill!
