I got to spend some time in Pittsburgh PA. over the weekend. What a great town, beautiful architecture , nice people, interesting driving (not for the meek).
Unfortunately, my wife and I had a very limited time to explore Pittsburgh, so we started with a trip to the Duquesne Incline. The inclines takes you from banks of the Ohio River to the top Coal Hill for a spectacular view of Pittsburgh ( I you haven’t already, click on the panorama image at the top of the post.).
After the Incline we headed over to the “Strip District”. The “Strip” is a collection of shops, restaurants, and food vendors on Penn Ave. The “Strip” is the home of the original Primanti Brother’s restaurant. Famous for their “Almost Famous Sandwich ”, your choice of meat with coleslaw, cheese, french fries piled on Italian bread, served on waxed paper. If that’s not to your gastronomical liking, there are many others restaurants to choose from. I recommend you stop by Jimmy and Nino’s Trattoria and Bakery and pickup a loaf of fresh baked pepperoni bread, it was the best pepperoni bread I have ever tasted…and Jimmy is quite the character.
One day is just not enough time to explore Pittsburgh, I’m putting on “must go back too” list. Maybe in the spring when it’s not 20 degrees and snowing.
