We had a great time in Pittsburgh this past weekend. The drive there wasn’t too bad (especially since we left at 6am when there was no traffic). When we got there, it was time to explore the town.
Pittsburgh is located on the Ohio River and there are many, many bridges throughout the city. There are also two inclines that take you up to the Mt. Washington section of town. We decided to ride a cable car up the Duquesne incline, walk about a mile along the river and then go back down the Monongahela incline.
After our little excursion, it was time for food! And where else to go while in Pittsburgh but Pramanti’s. We were in Market Square, so we happened upon that location. Wow – the sandwiches are no joke! I wasn’t able to eat everything, but made a valiant effort!
After dinner, The Husband and I took a ghost tour around town, which was a fun way to see the sites and learn some interesting history. We also passed the hotel that the Jets were staying at, so that was a nice little bonus.
On game day, we were fortunate enough to get a shuttle from our hotel to the bridge that leads you to Heinz Stadium. It’s really cool over there – lots of restaurants and bars around the stadium and everyone just hanging out and having a great time. Much better than MetLife Stadium (sorry, but it’s true!)
After some all-in-good-fun ribbing and meeting some nice folks, we headed into the stadium for the game. Unfortunately the Jets lost, but being there was a great experience. I even bought a Terrible Towel as a souvenir.
We got a quick dinner at Quaker Steak & Lube and some ice cream and Dave & Andy’s and called it a night.
What a fun trip and I can’t wait to see where our next adventure will take us!
