Attractions Near Pittsburgh David L. Lawrence Convention Center

Carnegie Science Center:

This interactive museum is located in the heart of Pittsburgh's North Side and is one of the most fascinating and interesting science museums in the United States. The space is full four floors that covers hundreds of different interactive displays and is truly diverse. In this one location visitors will get the chance to explore an aquarium, a robot exhibit, giant spaces for live and robotic performances as well as the USS Requin. The Submarine is a real Navy vessel from World War II and is located just outside the Carnegie Science Center in the Ohio River.

Frick Park:

This large public space is located in the neighborhood of Squirrel Hill and remains one of the most popular recreation destinations for locals and visitors alike. It is easily accessible from some of the nearby museums and landmarks and is heavily forested in some areas for hiking as well as flat and clear in others for enjoying a picnic or a game of Frisbee. There are several miles of winding covered paths that make it ideal for cycling or walking as well. The Frick Environmental Center is located within the park and boasts environmental exhibits as well as a chance to view local wildlife.

U.S. Steel Tower:

This giant skyscraper dominates the skyline in Downtown Pittsburgh. It is over sixty floors in height and remains one of the tallest office buildings in the United States. As might be expected from the headquarters of a large steel company like U.S. Steel, the entire building is made of special steel. The steel has never been painted and it is designed to look rusty which only adds to the uniqueness of the structure.

Fort Pitt Block House:

This structure is the only remaining part of Fort Pitt. Fort Pitt was a large military enclave built by the British in the early eighteenth century when trying to expand the American colonies. Today the entire fort is gone save for the Fort Pitt Block House. History enthusiasts should visit the museum onsite to learn more about the British and French presence in the early development of Pittsburgh.

Heinz Field:

This sporting complex is well known in Pittsburgh for hosting the home games of teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers. Visitors can come on game day to see the action firsthand or tour the stadium locker rooms and museum on other days.
