This is the place to shop in Pittsburgh! I never thought of this as an "attraction" but since it's here, I'll share my thoughts. Whenever I go to Pittsburgh there are four places I must go in the Strip: Presto George's for freshly made peanut butter, Mancini's for fresh bread, Parma Sausage for the best meat products ever, and Pennsylvania...

The strip is buried at the top of Pittsburgh. Everyone said go to the strip. When we went there, I knew why. This place is a great shopping and walking spot for people. The food, especially the Italian food, was unbelievable. Parking is a little tough but once you get a spot, enjoy.

This is a great day out from date night to girls day out if covers everything. Shopping, window shopping, eating and people watching it covers it. Now... it can be crowded and especially busy on the weekends but you are surrounded by the people of Pittsbugh what is there not to love. Add it to your list if you are... More

Saturdays may be crowded but there is usually a little more going on in the Strip than on a regular weekday. Any time we have company, we take them to the Strip. So much fun shopping and activity. Parma Sausage is one of my favorite stops, just make sure you are a carnivore! Delicious prosciutto, Sopresatta, Italian Sausage, Meatloaf mix... More

I make yearly trips down to Pittsburgh and the Strip District is always a must-stop. It's pretty much just a single road lined with shop and restaurants but it's pretty cool. Stores carry almost everything- ethnic clothes, kitchen supplies, chocolate, fresh fish, Steeler's gear, etc. There's also a plethora of restaurants down the strip catering to all kinds of tastes....

A must stop for anyone visiting Pittsburgh. More than just a farmers market. Cultural fanfare. Bakeries, fresh pasta, fish market, Asian food and market, meat market, fresh cheeses, musicians, wine shop, antiques, art. Something for everyone. We loved it!
