Traveling to Pittsburgh for a Convention? Make it a Mini Vacation

If a convention takes you to Pittsburgh, you will have a golden opportunity to play tourist in a city that combines small-town warmth with the cultural amenities of a major metropolis. No longer a sooty steel center, Pittsburgh's outdated Rust Belt reputation makes it all the more rewarding for visitors who discover its many surprises. If you want to stay near the David L Lawrence Convention Center hotel suites abound, at a location that gives you a perfect base for your exploration of a town full of proud traditions. If you turn your convention in Pittsburgh into a mini vacation, Hilton hotel suites can accommodate a fantastic trip that mixes business with pleasure.

A City of Champions

Although the steel industry left Pittsburgh decades ago, the industry's namesake football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, are as popular as ever. Steelers home games at Heinz Field are always sold out, but that stadium also hosts the University of Pittsburgh's Panthers. A much easier ticket to come by, and a lovely venue, is PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. While baseball's Pirates have not had a winning season since the early 1990s, PNC Park boasts breathtaking views of the Pittsburgh skyline and the chance to grab dinner at Primanti Brothers, a hometown favorite serving its signature french fry laden sandwiches inside the park. Both Heinz Field and PNC Park sit across the river from the David L Lawrence Convention Center and are easily reached from Hilton hotel suites.

Fine Art and Pop Art

If you crave culture instead of competition, why not investigate Pittsburgh's art scene? The Carnegie Museum of Art in the city's Oakland section offers a permanent collection of American and European art stretching back nearly five centuries alongside a variety of special exhibitions. The Andy Warhol Museum honors the Pittsburgh native with a collection that features thousands of his own works of visual art in different media. If you want to pay further respects to Warhol, he is buried just outside the city limits at St. John the Baptist Cemetery in the South Hills section of the suburbs. For something completely different, you can visit The Mattress Factory on the city's North Side, featuring room-sized installations that let you literally get into the art.

Whatever direction you head in, however, staking out a base in the heart of the city means you will never be too far from the best Pittsburgh has to offer. Near David L Lawrence Convention Center hotel suites and other amenities can help you make your next convention an adventure.
