If it's your first-time in Pittsburgh, there are certain experiences you shouldn't pass up. Ride the Duquesne Incline up to Mount Washington for amazing views of the city. Tour Heinz Field, or even better, root for the Steelers at a home game. During baseball season, seeing the Pirates in action at PNC Park is high on the list, and families love the Pittsburgh Zoo. In addition to these favorites, Pittsburgh also boasts a legacy of learning and love for nature. At the enormous Carnegie Science Center visitors may attend live kitchen theater shows, climb aboard the historic USS Requin submarine and explore over 200 more interactive exhibits. The center's sister museums, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Andy Warhol Museum are also worth checking out.
