Why rent a car in Pittsburgh?
Pittsburgh’s smoky steel-town past is far in the rear-view mirror, replaced by a green and lively city with a bright future. You can see much of downtown on foot or by bike, but to explore Pittsburgh’s eclectic neighborhoods you’ll want a car – especially considering the San Francisco-steep hills.
Where to go in Pittsburgh
Watch three rivers meet at Point State Park. From there it’s a short walk to the three identical bridges that cross the Allegheny. On the other side are the Andy Warhol Museum and the homes of the Steelers and Pirates. The University of Pittsburgh’s incredible Cathedral of Learning in Oakland is a 10-minute drive via I-376 and Forbes Ave. Penn Avenue connects downtown to the trendy Strip District, filled with restaurants and bars. It’s a five-minute trip – except during rush hours. The best daytrip is Frank Lloyd Wright’s epic Fallingwater, 70 miles southeast via I-76 and US Hwy 386.
Getting around Pittsburgh
The three rivers, steep hills and unexpected dead ends mean even lifelong locals get lost sometimes. Consider using a GPS. A few highways hem in downtown (I-279 to north, I-376 to south, I-579 to east), while the color-coded belt loop is for suburban commuters only. On weekdays, parking downtown is limited – try North Side garages across the Allegheny. After a red light at stoplights, brace for the unofficial “Pittsburgh left,” where cars (often) yield to oncoming cars with a left signal.
Pittsburgh car rental locations
All the major rental agencies can be found at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), as well as at locations around town. Wherever you pick up your car, you’ll get a great deal on your Pittsburgh car rental from Hotwire.
