The South side of Pittsburgh is full of great Bars and Restaurants worth visiting, along with some other great places to visit and shop. A must if you have never been to Pittsburgh.

Stayed in an AirBnB in the Southside and cannot recommend the area enough! There are a lot of shops and restaurants to walk to. The neighborhood is revitalizing and there are a lot of beautiful homes to look at. Southside Riverfront Park is also gorgeous!...More

We ventured to the South Side for the first time to get away from the crowds downtown and find Primanti's! We loved the rustic feel of the south side!

Just take a walk around South Side and have a one drink at at least 7 places and I'm sure you'll find the area fun.

Lots of unique shops and quirky restaurants abound here. One of the areas of Pittsburgh I really enjoyed. Plenty of cool shops, good coffee, but did not try out the night scene.

A cute area to walk around, shop a bit and grab a meal. Seemed like a mini (very mini) version of Navy Pier in DC.

Not crazy about pole bending drunk people, but that is typical evening adventures in South Side. Lots to do!

Someone already stated it depends on where you are on the Southside. If you are at Station Square you only need to walk across a bridge and you will be downtown. Station Square is at Smithfield Street. However if you... More

Turtle spotting/stop between Hilo & Kona... on South side (6 Replies)
If we're driving from Hilo to Kona along the South side of the island what are some good stops?? Anywhere sea turtles can be spotted???

The only place where you will be close to the ocean along the route is Punalu'u. It's the famous black sand beach of the island and home of the turtles. There are not many places to stop at until you reach Captain Cook. I always stop at the Volcano Winery to check out their gift shop. (Their wines are terrible.)

We have friends coming to see a Steeler game this month. They have been here several times, stay in the city and only go to near-by areas; South Side, The Strip, Station Square, downtown. We we are coming from Butler area and are thinking that we'd like to maybe pick them up and take them a little further out of the city for dinner. It couldn't be very far since we would have to pick them up, spend a few hours together, take them back, then get home. Is there a place that someone could...More

I don't want to guess - so what's "not too far". Is it an hour - 60 miles? Two hours? I mean Butler is a ways north (in my mind). Is your starting point Butler or is it downtown? There are some awesome restaurants all around the outskirts of the city - Mt. Lebanon, Bridgeville, others....Need more info.

South Side Snorkeling (10 Replies)
My husband and I are arriving in Maui on Thursday (yeah!). We always stay in the Ka'anapali area and are familiar with snorkeling there, but we would like to do some snorkeling on the south side. Some recommendations are "The Dumps", Five Graves and Maluaka Beach. We will probably only drive there once and would appreciate any thoughts on favorite snorkel spots. We are experienced, though not too daring, snorkelers. Also, is the craft fair by the Banyan Tree still held on Saturdays? ...More

Another option for snorkeling, is at Ulua Beach. Also, the Kamaole Beaches are not bad either, if you go the rock out droppings at either ends of the beaches.
