The ice skating rink, winter garden, holiday village and central location make this a great stop with family during the holidays. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there this year and look forward to going again!

The whole area around PPG Place interesting. The architecture is very cool and the reflection of the glass gives it a great appearance. It's awesome during the holidays, you should see it.

This building is home to several businesses located in Pittsburgh, but it was originally commissioned, built and owned by PPG (Pittsburgh Plate Glass, Pittsburgh Paint & Glass, whatever...), a Fortune 200 company whose corporate headquarters still command the top floors. It is truly beautiful, but not much of a destination in & of itself (other than for architecture buffs). However, the square in the middle of the complex is a lovely place in all seasons... in the winter it has an ice skating venue where you can rent & skate around the "holiday tree", and during the other seasons it is much like a plaza in Europe, lots of tables for eating, resting & people watching. Sometimes you can find entertainment or political speakers holding court. It is very near Market Square, a great place to buy carry-out (or dine in) food, and venue for lunch time entertainment in the warmer months.

We did not go here. We just viewed the building from across the water but the architecture is absolutely wonderful with this building. You must take a look at this when you visit Pitt.

It's a great spot to take a rest. They have tables and chairs set up. You can bring a lunch or get something to go from near by Market Square or Enstein Bagels in PPG. The fountain is relaxing to watch and fun for kids to play in (check out their website for rules...like kids actually cannot wear swim suits and must wear shoes)...I just bring a change of clothes and water shoes for my 2 year old to play.
In the winter there's the skating rink and it's always decorated nicely!
There is security staff there all the time too.
