A car can help take you on your next adventure, but what happens once you finally reach your destination? At Carvana, we’ve grown accustomed to entering new markets and finding ways to weave ourselves into the fabric of the communities who have adopted the new way to buy a car. It’s one of the exciting elements of what we do.
With that, however, we also know that being the new kid in town isn’t always easy. Which is why our series of guides compiled by Carvana team members in our different markets aims to help both visitors and new residents find their bearings and experience the unique flavors, sights, and sounds that each of our markets has to offer. Our Guide to #CarvanaCountry road show rolls on, as we put the spotlight this week on the Steel City – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!
See the Black and Yellow in action
When in Pittsburgh, head to any sporting event filled with the most prideful fans (Steelers, Penguins, Pirates) anywhere in the United States….after all, Pittsburgh is the City of Champions! All stadiums in Pittsburgh reside within the downtown area, providing amazing views of the city. When the teams are not playing, both PPG Paints Arena and Heinz Field host concerts year round.
Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
Discover Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, located in Schenley Park, a world class garden experience since 1893. Or visit the National Aviary, located in Central Northside, which is the only independent indoor non-profit aviary in the U.S. It is also the country’s largest aviary, and the only one accorded honorary “National” status by the United States Congress.
The Strip District
Explore the Strip District, but don’t be fooled by the name. Breathe deep because you won’t want to escape the splendid aromas of fresh-roasted coffee or just-baked bread. Bordering Downtown, this neighborhood is pure Pittsburgh. The strip offers old-style grocers, hip foods, and gourmet restaurants, plus street stands and vendors with bars and breweries.
Andy Warhol Museum
Explore the Andy Warhol Museum located in the North Shore, only one block away from PNC Park. The Warhol is the largest museum in North America dedicated to a single artist. The museum holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives from the Pittsburgh-born pop art icon Andy Warhol.
Take a ride up the Duquesne or Monongahela Incline to Mt. Washington for a view like no other of the Pittsburgh skyline. USA Today named the nighttime view from Mt. Washington as one of the 10 most beautiful views in America. Both the Monongahela and Duquesne inclines are the oldest continually running funiculars in the world. Mt. Washington also offers upscale restaurants along “Restaurant Row,” offering stunning views of the city. It also offers quaint shopping, with ice cream/coffee shops, along with newer bars/restaurants.
