For the May long weekend (Victoria Day), my friends and I took a road trip to Pittsburgh. Having visited Pittsburgh in the past as part of my long road trip to Florida with my parents, I remembered it being a really nice city to visit.

The drive from Toronto to Pittsburgh took us 5 hours, as we left Friday morning. We got to the Motel 6 in Crafton, which is a suburb, 20 minutes away from downtown. We headed downtown to sightsee and to head to Howl and the Moon, a bar with live band performing songs based requests from the crowd. The place had an amazing atmosphere and was a lot of fun!

Saturday, we headed to a baseball game. We had tickets to the Philadelphia Phillies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates. This was the first time I have been to a real baseball stadium (Sorry Skydome, you are not a real baseball stadium). PNC Park was awesome to be in, and have a great view of the city skyline. It ended up to be a pretty boring game (Pirates won 1-0), as it started to rain in the later stages of the game.

Sunday morning, we headed to many viewpoints such as Mt. Washington, where you can find the best place to see the city skyline.

The Sum of my Pittsburgh Trip

The road trip to Pittsburgh cost me $ 284.92 CAD. I went on this trip with 3 other people, so it was nice to split a motel room, gas, and uber with 3 other people.
