I used to live on the South side when I went to college. I've noticed some of the local places I used to love are gone. What is happening?

South side was really awesome! So many bars and restaurants and seriously there was something for everyone! Even clubs and a saloon or two! For a Thursday night, it was pretty lively too! Younger crowd and very fun :)

From stores and shops and boutiques to clubs and city theaters to tons of restaurants for foodies, you can never get bored! Daytime or night time there is a forceful energy that exists as you walk through the... More

This is one of the most updated yet quaint area of Pittsburgh. Not only does it have all the conveniences but also some great neighborhood bars.

went on a Sunday and most stores were closed. Lots of good restaurants were open, but many places were empty and up for rent or sale.

We had time so we decided to check out this place. We went during the day. It felt like a college section when you entered the area on Carson St where bars are located. Nonetheless, a few vintage shops are nice to visit. I got a 1930s outfit from Three River Vintage Store on Carson St.

My daughter and I love the Southside! We learned after the first time that it's more convenient for us to stay at a nearby hotel than to drive, because the parking kind of sucks and is expensive when you're on a budget.
