This stretch of markets and sundries from 12th -32st street is best seen in the AM when the markets open for produce and ethnic meats and and seafood favorites. Oh they are various shops and pubs and cafes and too many stores selling Steeler memorabilia. lots of murals of foods on the building walls.Great names like the Altar bar housed... More

Lots of shops, restaurants, and small markets in one unique area just blocks from downtown Pittsburgh! Much more to do there during the warm summer months! I recommend a visit and you will find something you like in this somewhat eclectic environment!

Always a great time. Love spice shop, tons of little shops to explore. Fun to just walk around. Plenty of places to grab a bite to eat.

The strip district is a neat place to visit. Avoid going on the weekends & you will want to go in the morning/early afternoon to avoid the crazy crowds. There are many different shops & a few restaurants (avoid Primanti Brothers - there are better places to eat around there). If you're going to buy sausage, buy it directly from... More

This place is very unique. Thye have great food stores, a lot if imported foods, shops, etc. Make sure to stop in Wholey's for the fried cod, (although they have all kinds of other great freshly prepared foods as well) it's really good! The store is pretty smelly because it's mainly a fish market, but they have all kinds of... More

I have made several trips to the strip district over the past year. There are many great shops and restaurants in this area. A good portion of the shops close at 4:30 pm so it is best to go early and during the week. Saturday and Sunday are almost impossable days to visit the strip.

Trendy, yes, but in a way that leaves you wondering if the theme is noise and smelly food spots, mixed with narrow sidewalks and no place to sit.

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.
