Pittsburgh vacation rentals

Pittsburgh has some serious panache

Whether you're seeking gooey Philly cheese sandwiches or refined American cuisine, gritty industrial history or cutting-edge modern art, Pittsburgh has you covered. Sat where the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers drift slowly into one another, this town of Art Deco skyscrapers and cosmopolitan neighborhoods is one of the most intriguing in America. It's a place to kick back in leafy parks and to roar with the local baseball crowds and to shop for Italian pizza pies before seeing wonderworks by Andy Warhol. And it's got more enticing, super-cool Pittsburgh vacation rentals than you can shake a meatball panini at.

There’s never a dull moment in Pittsburgh

If you've been lucky enough to bag Pittsburgh vacation rentals in the downtown area, then you're likely to find yourself hopping between world-class art museums and wondering up at imposing Art Deco skyscrapers. If you're based in the bustling Strip District, then you can taste ethnic foods and shop in authentic Italian delicatessens. If you're on the South Side, panoramic lookouts and skyline photography sessions beckon, not to mention walking tours and sightseeing bus routes. And that's just 3 of the great neighborhoods here…

Pittsburgh's skyline hides plenty

You'll immediately spot the hulking outlines of buildings like the U.S. Steel Tower and the shimmering PPG Place with its Medieval-like turrets – these are the landmarks that draw the eye in Steel City. Delve into the blocks that hug those megastructures, and that's where the world-class Carnegie Museum awaits, fusing groundbreaking science exhibits with famous art works by American greats. Other awesome attractions include the lookout points on Mount Washington and the PPG Zoo & Aquarium, where 4,000 exotic animals await.

Dodge the snow and the scorchers in Pittsburgh

With 4 distinct seasons, Pittsburgh can be a totally different city depending on the time of year you visit. Most vacationers will want to dodge the scorching days of high summer and the icy winters to get the best sightseeing weather, which occurs in spring and fall, between April and May, and September and October. That said, the months of June and August are awash with festivals, while there's plenty of festive cheer in town for Christmas – just be sure to pack the thermals.

Explore the land of rivers and peaks around Pittsburgh

Set out on the Allegheny Plateau at the very western end of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh is one of the gateways to the heart of the Midwest. The surrounding landscapes are dominated by the courses of the Allegheny River, the Ohio River, and the Monongahela, which drift like snakes through the low peaks and forests after leaving the metropolis. One of the main natural getaways for locals is surely the Laurel Highlands, where those Pittsburgh vacation rentals will have whitewater rafting, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, and creek walking right on the doorstep.
