PPG Place

From the moment we spotted this on the horizon my children declared it a crystal castle and we HAD to visit.
The fountains in the middle are cool and seem to operate randomly and light up randomly, but they are beautiful to watch, and kids LOVE to watch and splash in these - a plus if you have younger kids.

That said, visitors will find great, family-owned "grocery" stores for meats, cheeses, seafoods, seasonings, and so on, for the perfect charcuterie board for home or the hotel room!
... Tap (gourmet oils and vinegars), the Allegheny Coffee & Tea for fresh roasted coffee beans (try the maple-bacon blend - yummy), and Grandpa Joe's candy (the kids can fill an entire box of candy there for $5).
