Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Established in the eighteenth century, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania became the industrial giant of the world, producing steel, iron, aluminum, and glass. But by the 1960s Pittsburgh remade itself through public-private partnerships into a city with clean air, clean water, grand public spaces and architecturally significant buildings. The city can be broken down into the Downtown area, called the Golden Triangle, and four main areas surrounding it.

Although the gay community is not a large as NYC, DC or Philadelphia, you will find Pittsburgh a city with a smaller "hometown" feeling with numerous nightspots to visit welcoming gay life of all ages. Pittsburgh has a number of gay specific guesthouses and traditional bed and breakfast accommodations. There is also a good selection of gay friendly hotels, inns, guesthouses to choose from. Rates and amenities offered range from budget to deluxe so there is plenty of choice for even the most discerning gay and lesbian traveler.

Downtown Pittsburgh is tight and compact and the ‘Cultural District’ comprises a 14 block area of downtown along the Allegheny River and is packed with theaters and arts venues.

The North Side is home to many popular attractions such as Heinz Field, PNC Park, Carnegie Science Center, National Aviary, Andy Warhol Museum, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, Penn Brewery and Allegheny Observatory.

The South Side's East Carson Street is one of the most vibrant areas of the city, packed with diverse shopping, ethnic eateries, pulsing nightlife and live music venues.

The East End is home to the Universities of Pittsburgh, The Carnegie Institute's Museums of Art and Natural History, Frick Art & Historical Center, Phipps Conservatory, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall, and the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. Bloomfield is Pittsburgh's ‘Little Italy’ and is renowned for its great Italian restaurants and grocers. The Strip
District is a popular open-air marketplace by day and one of Pittsburgh's hottest clubbing destinations by night.

For music lovers, The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra performs in Heinz Hall, and the Pittsburgh Opera performs in the Benedum Center. Pittsburgh has a long tradition of jazz, blues and bluegrass music, as well as a large indie and punk rock scene. Additionally the National Negro Opera Company was founded in Pittsburgh, and was the first all African-American opera company in the United States. This led to the prominence of African-American singers like Leontyne Price in the world of opera.

There is a quarterly Gallery Crawl in the downtown area's cultural district. This is free and allows the public to enjoy the local art scene as well as the Three Rivers Arts Festival. This festival takes place in the same downtown area annually during the summer.

In theater, the Pittsburgh Playhouse of Point Park University has four resident companies of professional actors. The city's longest-running theatre show, Friday Nite Improvs, is an improv jam that has been performed in the Cathedral of Learning and other locations for 17 years.

So, if you’re looking for a fun weekend break or a longer vacation, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has plenty to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
