Pittsburgh Things to Do: 267 reviews and 672 photos

Shopping. As with many areas of the US, Pittsburgh is becomming overrun with chain stores & restaurants. The downtown area and some outer neighborhoods are making their best effort to resist.
SHADYSIDE: more upscale shopping but also more chain stores. Terriffic bakery. About 4-5 city blocks. SOUTH SIDE: more artsy, definately unique. Lots of coffee shops, good book stores. Many city blocks. SQUIRREL HILL: artsy, tasteful, a large shopping district with everything you need. Family oriented but still funky. Many, many city blocks. OAKLAND (specifically S. Criag St.): only 2 blocks, but very unique and lively.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
