Pittsburgh Car Rentals
Finding great rental cars in Pittsburgh is simple!
One of America's most historic and classic cities, Pittsburgh is a family-friendly and fun place to vacation with kids. This once-industrial city is now home to breathtaking architecture, numerous amenities and modern museums, but families will especially appreciate its many kid-friendly attractions. Pittsburgh boasts serious cultural clout: Its museums run the gamut from art to automobiles. Your own Pittsburgh car rental will ensure that you and your family can easily traverse this exciting yet perfectly sized city.
It's learning time
You won't want to miss the chance to drive to one of the city's insightful and renowned museums. Your first stop should be the Carnegie Science Center, where kids can learn about bugs, sports and other appealing topics. One exhibit here even teaches your kids about sound and music notes through the use of instruments made from PVC pipes! Other must-sees are the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History. These two kid-friendly museums are housed in one building, so you'll have no problem getting there. The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh is also a must, especially for families with babies and toddlers. Numerous interactive exhibits allow for hours of entertainment at this kids-only destination.
Take a tour
Kids will love taking a Just Ducky Tour around the city's three rivers: The Allegheny, the Monongahela and the Ohio. Your family will hop aboard a World War II water vehicle and will then be treated to a knowledgeable guided tour. Tour guides point out interesting buildings and architecture, share stories and regale passengers with historical info. Kids will love that each child on board gets a turn to steer the ship.
A view from the top
Your entire family will love taking a ride up the Monongahela Incline, nicknamed "the Mon" by locals. This funicular was constructed in 1870 and is the oldest of its kind still in operation - yet even today, it allows for breathtaking views from the top of Mount Washington. The journey up the mountain lasts just a few minutes, but from the top you'll be able to enjoy a panoramic view of Pittsburgh. Additionally, you'll be able to enjoy the shops and restaurants of Station Square, a lively district located on Carson Street, before and after you scale Mount Washington.
Pittsburgh, “Steel City,” has a rugged, hard-scrabble history filled with battles like Pontiac’s Rebellion – and it’s famous for the brute strength and fortitude it took to build its iron production business after the War of 1812 cut off the supply of British goods. But the city also has a softer side, like the one resident’s channeled when they started the Renaissance II project in 1977 and decided to focus their energies on developing the town as a cultural mecca.
Because of the hard work and passion of its residents, the city is now the perfect blend of strong and serene, raucous and relaxed. It is a place where people of all walks of life can come together and truly see what focus, determination and skill can build.
