The Strip was and to some extent still is Pittsburgh's warehouse district, so don't expect modern and posh when you go down there. The buildings are old and atmospheric, and you will see why this area has been used as early/mid-20th century New York in movies. You will almost certainly need to park in one of the paid lots. There... More

Great way to spend several hours. Park on the street way at one end where there is free 2-hour parking. We stayed 4 hours and no ticket. Otherwise, central parking is $10. We walked up one side and down the other. Lots of fun.

This is literally a "strip" of businesses and sidewalk sales stretching a few blocks in an old warehouse district of Pittsburgh. It is great seeing them try to improve and bring life to the area. We first visited on a Sunday afternoon, it was crazy with a flea market, a couple restaurants, sidewalk sales and some specialty stores. Most everything... More

Fun place to walk and get a great meal & drink. Good markets for fresh fruit, veggies and baked goods. Ethnic foods and all the Pittsburg fanfare you could ever care for.

We take our children to the strip often, but our favorite times are Saturday early mornings around Christmas... The feeling and bustle really get you excited for the holidays. The sites and sounds are wonderful!

We liked it so much we came back on our last morning for one last stroll. We enjoyed this shopping/restaurant area. There were markets, restaurants, and some shopping. Parking is tough to come by. The first day we ended up all the way on 12th street and it was a hike. We fared a little better the second time.

I had a morning to kill before a wedding and decided to walk the strip. On a Saturday it was PACKED so bring your patience to walk through crowed. There are some farmers market sections for food, some restaurants and bars and a LOT of tsotchke shops. Unfortunately it is almost uniquely this type of shop, so if you're looking... More

A great place to get great food of all sorts. There are many ethnic shops and specialty foods. The Pittsburgh Popcorn company makes great caramel corn. Wholey's fish market has lots of fresh fish and make sure that you get a sandwich at Primanti Brothers. The Spaghetti warehouse is a unique stop where you can eat in a trolley car.

For as many times that my husband and I have been to Pittsburgh, we have never been to The Strip. Fun experience and great shopping! We went on Sunday morning. Some of the vendors are not there on Sunday's. However, we were still able to buy plenty of survivors. Great prices on t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. Cute coffee shops. Highly recommend... More
