I was really surprised just what a pretty part of Pittsburgh this is. The streets have great character, and the shops are very quaint. Some nice little niche shops as well. There is also a Pamela's here, so a good spot to refuel whilst walking through the neibourhood.

Our favorite place for shopping, dining and nightlife in Pittsburgh. We do an annual South Side crawl before a Pirates game. It is great for all ages.

The Southside is another true Pittsburgh experience. From the bars and restaurants to the Southside works. We really don't do the bar seen anymore. We would say if you are under 35 go do some bar hopping. We are in our mid 40's so we like Southside works.

South Side is a rather interesting place to visit if you’re in Pittsburgh. From Station Square east through the East Carson Street Historic District to the SouthSide Works is a fascinating blend of a working class neighborhood, new shopping centers, tattoo parlors, and bars of every kind. If you continue east on 837, you’ll also reach the Sandcastle Water Park... More

Super place for a meal, drink or both. Need a taxi to get there but well worth the time and effort. One long road with numerous bars and restaurants along both sides. We visited on two consecutive days once in the night then in the day to eat and was impressed on both occasions. We tried Fatheads for a meal.... More

I've been here a couple of times and have enjoyed it every time! There are tons of restaurants and some shopping too. There are chains and local places, both for the restaurants and stores. There are a lot of young people around but I think older people would enjoy this area too. Come check it out!

South Side is one of those place that many shops have come and gone. It once was a place that had as many Churches as it had bars. Though the sad thing now is that churches there have bebyeen replaced by other businesses. South Side has a college town feel to it on weekends, since Pittsburgh has about 15 colleges... More
