I woke up yesterday and randomly decided, “hey lets go to the city”. I love Pittsburgh as many of you already know. There are so many great places to explore and all too often we don’t do that enough. The city that you live in or around no matter where it is will always have great things to do, fun events to attend, tasty foods to sample and unique places to shop.
We headed into the bustling Strip District. It has been way to long since I went there for a taste of Pittsburgh. We perused the Pittsburgh Public Market and sampled some delectable local treats. Even though there was a chill in the air, my husband and I were just as excited as the kids. We walked down the street to Stan’s Market for some fresh produce and fought our way through the line outside of DeLuca’s. There are a plethora of nationalities present in the Strip and you can find that exact spice you have been looking for. Don’t forget the street vendors selling everything you need to fit right in with some Pittsburgh gear.
In the end, everyone usually lives somewhere for a reason. Sometimes that reason is work, sometimes it is family and sometime you just are born into it. Take a day and act like a tourist and you will be amazed at what you will find. Even after 30 years, Pittsburgh still excites me like I was a kid riding the “T” into the city for the first time.
