In our pursuit to see all the Major League Ballparks in our lifetime, a good friend of mine and I will be in Pittsburgh the 1st weekend in August for a Pirates game and hopefully getting to see some of the city.
Our tenative itinerary gets us there sometime early evening on Saturday and see the game on Sunday afternoon, leaving sometime Monday for points west (towards Cincinnati where we'll see a game on that Wedneday).
First off, can anyone recommend a decently priced hotel in the area (no more than $100 per night)? It looks like Pittsburgh is easy enough to get around so price is more of a factor than distance.
Would also be looking for things to do on Sunday after the game and perhaps Monday morning before we head west.
We're both in our 40s and are not bar people but love to see historic places (that St. Anthony's chapel looks interesting) and I personally like weekend fests as well as walking around both city and rural settings.
