We were on the double decker bus tour and walked to the Strip from the Heinz History Museum. It was a bustling marketplace with fresh produce, Mexican food, fresh kettle corn, a popcorn store, a Middle Eastern Market, fresh bread, a spice store, hippie clothes store, several places selling Pittsburgh sports teams' apparel, a fresh seafood market, an Asian market,...

This has been my favorite destination since I was a child. Wooley's fish has been there since before I was born and no place makes a better fried fish sandwich. Though the strip has many places to buy food whether you want cheese, fresh meats [go to Parma], bread, biscotti, chocolate, flowers, kitchen paraphenalia, or street foods such as kabobs... More

Lots of different places offering eye candy and ethnic food. Sidewalk vendors, "hippie" clothing and accessories, upscale kitchen store and discount fresh food market. You could easily spend a day looking, eating, drinking and walking. Plan a couple of hours.

This is an older area that now has a number of good restaurants and interesting shops. . . . . Artsy type area . . . . . . Reminded me of the way the East Village in New York used to be.

A recent lovely Saturday found us waiting in line for pancakes at Pamela's, saying goodbye to "Dear Heart", the cheese monger at Pennsylvania Macaroni, visiting Penzey's for the freshest herbs and spices, wandering through Wholeys to inspect the fish, hand taking a test run at Kindred Bikes, and noshing at the Pittsburgh Public Market! The variety of shops and restaurants... More

Seriously. People in Pittsburgh talk about the Strip District in a reverential tone as if it's like visiting The Vatican or something. It isn't. It's just a strip of a bunch of businesses, some good, some entirely tacky, that happen to be clustered together just outside of downtown. It does have one thing going for it and that is that...

We had lunch in S&D's Polish Deli, espresso and biscotti (and lunch before leaving) at Enricos, cruised for Pittsburgh sports gifts, and got some awesome dried flowers at Roxane's. And there was still more we could have checked out. Wish Denver's 16th St Mall was half as good!

Wolleys Fish Market....for anything that lives in or near the water....try the Sushi and the Lobster Mac & Cheese!! Parma Sausage Co....anything! And of course the original Primanti's....get a Cap & Cheese!!! Much... More

I'm so fascinated by different cultures and learning processes on how thing are made. Those little hole in the wall places are the BEST places to visit. Enjoyed the different food markets with all the varieties. For the beer and cigar Condo Surer check out the BeerHive and the Leaf and Bean.

We visited the Strip District on a Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed the energetic vibe. Within a few blocks, one can walk and shop from various street vendors and shops, and taste a variety of foods from restaurants and street vendors. The area is very diverse and the shopping is very diverse. I’d recommend it for anyone. Parking is somewhat... More
