We made it up the slope to Pius Street in search of a church condo we had seen. The stairs are old, somewhat in need of repair, and very steep! But the view of the city is fabulous and worth the effort.

We came in late inthe day, but there are a ton of shops, bars, restaurants, movie theater, etc. Also there are Duck tours if you follow the walking/biking paths along the river.

Restaurants good before 10 - 11 pm which is when overly intoxicated people start to make their presence known. Parking perpetually difficult. Sur la table is a unique cooking store. Jogging in the evening you will inhale combo of dryer sheet smell, cigarettes and grill. Avoid Carson St when driving. Get on one of the back streets or you will... More

Great place to visit for residents and visitors to Pittsburgh alike. Restaurants and bars galore, and interesting shops you can browse in. It's best to park at one side of the neighborhood and walk along Carson Street, stopping where you'd like. You can visit multiple times and find new shops and restaurants to explore.

I've been here alot since I've lived in Pittsburgh as it was recommended as an area to go to for fun from people at my job. There are many bars one can get to by foot or cab here, some restaurants, and it is overall a good feeling being here. There is a lot of foot traffic here and at... More

This is our hub when we visit the city. Some of the places we love are: REI, Goodwill, Zenith Tea & Antiques, Enchanted Garden Smoothies, Spring Hill Suites, and Carson Street. Stop by the cozy Chamber of Commerce on Carson to get the scoop on the area as well as the city. And, the area is a short trip to... More

This is a unique neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Once a steel workers town with bars and little restaurants, it has reinvented itself in the last 20 years and now is a thriving place to live, eat, drink, go to the theater, and just hang out.

Southside has a TON of bars/restaurants. East Carson gets crowded on weekend nights. There are many shops scattered along the main street. Southside Works has a movie theater, shops, and restaurants. There is actually a lot of parking for such a congested area/neighborhood.

The Southside is an eclectic neighborhood with one main drag (East Carson Street) that spans about 20 blocks full of shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries, coffee shops, etc. More importantly, the Southside is a neighborhood where all types of people live ~ yes, there are college students, but this is a small portion of the people who call the Southside...
