Had breakfast at KellyO's and then walked the strip. Lots of outdoor vendors, lots of Pirates gear. Typical vendor types of stuff. Flowers looked beautiful for sale but as we were staying in a hotel, not practical for us.

Spend a few hours in the strip to see what Pittsburgh is all about. Friendly locals, cool stores, great restaurants, and quirky street life. Parking may be a challenge depending on when you go, but it's not impossible. Eat at Primanti's, shop at Wholey's and Pennsylvania Macaroni Co. Yinz will feel like real pittsburghers!

So many places to eat wonderful food! From Argentinian to Italian, Mexican everything is wonderful. Penzeys spice shop and the most wonderful flower shop ever. You have to stop by Penn Mac just to inhale the wonderful aromas of cheese and all sorts of Italian delicacies. Fresh sausage stores and a biscotti bakery....heaven on earth! Did I forget the chocolate,... More

Bring your money and your appetite to The Strip! There is definitely something there for everyone. Plan to spend at least an hour there. And put on a good pair of walking shoes.

Get there early to do serious shopping. Then, relax with a great coffee and a pastry or pizza slice. Great selection and price range, everything from gourmet flavored coffees to flowers. A Burgh must!
