The strip district in Pittsburgh is a fun area with great shops and a variety of places to eat. We love the deli and pasta at Penn Macaroni company, the bread and pepperoni rolls at Sunseri's, and the meat from Parma. Such a fun place to shop inexpensively!

My boyfriend and I are both foodies and we love to come here to explore and grab a late lunch at one of the many great restaurants along the strip. When the weather cooperates it gets crowded, so plan to come after the big rushes or maybe earlier in the day so you can see more of the merchants and... More

When going to The Strip, be prepared to do a lot of outdoor walking. So the better the weather the more you'll enjoy the day.There are many different shops, stores, & restaurants featuring different ethnic backgrounds. So many you won't know where to start first. Parking is hard to find, especially on a Saturday, but still a fun place to... More

If you get there walk the whole strip and plan to eat at a couple of places. This iconic area is true Pittsburgh the way it used to be before the yuppies took over. Primanti's, Wholley's, and any of the markets. If you want the best homemade meats and sausages, you have to stop in Parma's. Go for some hot... More

This is a great place to visit, as it is loaded with shops and restaurants! It is a famous hot spot for locals and visitors. I never get tired of visiting this part of town each time we come back to visit. There are murals on the sides of buildings to represent the history behind this part of town. We... More

We loved the strip so much! We went on Saturday, and loved it so much, went back on Monday before leaving town! There's so much to see and what seems like a lot of good restaurants. Definitely take a day to go here. The shops seem to close around 4ish, so go early. It was pretty busy when we went,... More

Took an informal walking tour with my family of the Strip District. $5 to park unless you are lucky enough to find street parking. Lots of cool stores/shops to check out. A great fish/meat market and a couple really good Italian stores. Lots of little restaurants to stop and have a drink or meal.

This is a great find. Lots of great little markets (Asian, Italian, Fish, Meat) for shopping. I particularly love Wholey's and the Pennsylvania Macaraoni Company. There are also great restaurants and bars. So after you do some shopping, stop in for a drink to cool off, or warm up. I highly recommend this for a Sat or Sunday morning outing.

You can find nearly anything to buy in the Strip District. The range is endless from clothing to ethnic groceries to CD's or records to cigars and nearly anything else. The food variety is just as varied and can extend from high end sit down restaurants to street vendors to McDonalds. Everyone should try the Primanti Brothers signature sandwich that... More
