Featured Events in Pittsburgh:
Located deep in the heart of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is one of the most hard-nosed cities in the country. With its history firmly rooted in manufacturing and blue collar toughness, Pittsburgh is home to deeply passionate sports fans, as well as a culture all of its own that will instantly show itself to visitors.
It's nearly impossible to separate Pittsburgh from its beloved sports teams, and nowhere is this more true than with the Steelers, who have won an astonishing six Super Bowl championships, all while being the pinnacle of class and professionalism. The Steelers have played their home games at Heinz Field since 2001, and it is among the nicest venues in the league. The stadium is also home to the beloved University of Pittsburgh Panthers football team.
Although the Steelers dominate the sports scene in Pittsburgh, they are certainly not the only ones. The Penguins of the NHL enjoy a large and loyal following in their home town, and have brought the city three Stanley Cup titles. The Penguins play their home games at the Consol Energy Center, which is one of the most modern venues in the NHL, having opened in 2010. With a capacity of just over 18,000, the arena offers great seats for everyone in attendance.
Along with the Steelers and the Penguins, the Pittsburgh Pirates call the city home. One of the oldest teams in the MLB, the Pirates have a rich history and tradition. While it's been years since they won a World Series crown, the Bucs, as they're affectionately known, have had some of the most legendary players come through, and their home field of PNC Park is among the nicest in the country.
Visitors looking for a more refined form of entertainment may want to turn their attention toward the Pittsburgh Playhouse. This venerable institution houses three separate performance areas and often hosts popular plays and musicals. Outside of the Pittsburgh Playhouse, the city offers numerous other areas to take in some excellent theater productions. Specifically, the Pittsburgh Public Theater, Prime Stage Theater and Quantum Theater are all excellent venues.
While it may have a reputation for its toughness, Pittsburgh is certainly a welcoming city and one unlike any other in the country where visitors can take in a broad swatch of Americana simply by walking down the street.
