If you like bar hopping this is the place. Start at jack's bar and work your way down the street. Too many bars to name.

When I lived in Pittsburgh, South Side was mills, bars, houses and some businesses (stores, doctors, etc.). Now it is diverse and busy. Go there, spend some time. Before you go, if you drive , figure out a plan for parking.

We went to the south side and strolled down Carson street. Many different places to eat and drink...too many to name. We did stop at FatHeads for lunch and it was great. Will definitely go there again

I went to 3 vintage stores. Nothing else interested me. Reminds me of a small version of BURBON STREET. I payed to park for 2 hours. More then enough time for me.
