Tourist in Your Own Tahn

We've all heard it. No one loves Pittsburgh as much as Pittsburghers love Pittsburgh. So, let's embrace it! Here are some fun ways to be a tourist in your very own city this summer.

Double Decker Tour

The Double Decker Tour takes you on a trip through our beautiful city. The bus has 21 stops from South Side to Oakland and everywhere in between. Learn fun facts along the way and hop off the bus at any of the stops that peak your interest. Stay tuned for fun photos from a team double decker tour we hope to take soon. :)

Is there a better way to get to know your city than enjoying food tastings from local businesses. The Burgh Bits & Bites tour is offered in The Strip District, Lawrenceville, South Side, Saxonburg and Harmony. If you decide to go on the Strip District tour, stop by our shop to say, "hi" n'at afterwards!

Visit the Museums 


Visit Pittsburgh has compiled a list of the museums within the Greater Pittsburgh region. Spend the summer going through the list and visiting museums in and around the city!

Get Walking or Bike Riding

Whether it's a walk along the River Trail, along Grandview Avenue, or through the neighborhoods, you're likely to be in for a spectacular view. One of my favorite ways to elevate a normal walk is to go when the sun is rising or setting. The city is full of wonderful opportunities to bike and walk around, so get out there and explore!

We drive through the Strip, Mount Washington, and Downtown all the time running transfers between our shops. We think a key aspect of being a tourist in your own town is appreciating things you may see all the time in a new way.
