A Day/Weekend in Pittsburgh, PA (Bucketlist)

If you ever find yourselves in western Pennslyvania, which you certainly should, the great city of Pixburg’ is not to be missed. My hometown. Full of the most “southern” people you’ll meet, north of the Mason Dixon line. With our pleasant “Pittsburghese”, with words like “yinz” replacing “y’all” or “you guys”, this historical city and proud people have a lot to offer. As a part of my “A Day in Series”, I’ve created a checklist of all of the must-do and must-visit activities and restaurants throughout the city, to make the most of your weekend visit!
