I make sure I visit the strip at least a couple of times a year. This year I discovered a new restaurant, but the old ones still call-DeLuccas, Rolands, Pams. Penzeys supplies me with my spices, Fish with my fresh tuna and whitefish dip and the Macaroni Company for all things Italian. Any Steeler, Pirate or Penguin memorabilia is there.... More

If you are a Pittsburgher or a visitor you will want to visit "The Strip." Also known as the "Strip District" with a full history of its own. In the late 19th century, wholesale produce merchants were located downtown and Railroad tracks ran down Liberty Avenue. Trains stopped on the street and produce was unloaded directly into the warehouses. Just... More

We didn't know anything about the Strip except for Pamela's Diner. After our meal we started exploring and 2 hours later we had lots of fun. Especially in the Italian market and popcorn shop. And if you want any Pittsburgh sport's teamwear, there's plenty of shops available.

There is something for everyone at the Strip District. Lots of great restaurants, shops, outdoor eaterys....can't go wrong with any! Personally like Jimmy and Nino Sunseri's Italian grocery and their sandwiches and beans and greens are a must have!

A must in Pittsburgh, even if just for a stroll. If you live here, go get your healthy food from the best shops in the city. Always busy, once you try it, you understand why it's a beloved spot for all the Pittsburghers (and the recurrent visitors). Love the Italian selection of food, but don't miss the Asian markets and... More

This looked like a fun place to visit and we weren't disappointed. Shops are charming and have such amazing things. Four /five different kinds of paprika! Wow! Clearly a foodie lover's delight. We bought biscotti ,sighed over cheese (no refrigeration) had lunch and a great time. If we lived here we'd buy meat and fish down here. Gorgeous!

Shopping in the Strip is fun for everyone. I recommend parking at one end and walking up one side and down the other. Lots of fun stops along the way. Go for breakfast and eat at Pamela's!

So, if you're now living in Pittsburgh or if, like me, you used to live here, you've no doubt been down to the Strip District many times. Why did you do that and what advice would you give to folks visiting The 'Burgh? Well, I used to go for various purposes, including when we had big motorcycle street festivals around... More

Lot's of shops and restaurants to visit in this multi-cultural trendy shopping district. Some classic spots like the Pennsylvania Macaroni food store and the Wholey Market are fun to check out. If you're a sports fan, there are lots of sidewalk-side shops to buy local sports memorabilia. There are many restaurants and sidewalk food stands so be sure to browse... More
