When you fly into Pittsburgh you will arrive at the Pittsburgh International Airport. The airport is located along I-376, approximately nineteen miles northeast of the downtown area. More than eight million travelers fly through Pittsburgh International Airport every year.
The Port Authority�s bus system serves Pittsburgh International Airport with bus service every thirty minutes. Route 28X bus service runs from the airport to downtown Pittsburgh and other locations for a fare of $3.75. If you would rather take a cab, three taxi service operators serve the airport: Checker Cab, Veterans Taxi, and Yellow Cab Company; contact these companies to ask about their rates. Many local hotels offer airport shuttle service, so ask if your hotel has this available if you plan to stay nearby. Alternatively, you can reserve a rental car to drive during your stay; it takes roughly thirty minutes to drive into downtown from the airport.
Winters in Pittsburgh are long, cold and snowy, with average lows from December through March staying below freezing and snowfall averaging more than seven inches per month during this time. If you visit Pittsburgh in the winter, bring warm clothing including a winter coat, gloves, and hats, and be prepared for weather delays. Summers are the opposite in Pittsburgh, having average highs reaching more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit during July and August. For the best weather, try visiting the area during the spring or autumn if you plan to spend much of your vacation outdoors.
Pittsburgh is the center for Pennsylvania�s professional sports teams. The Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Pittsburgh Penguins all play in the city, making it a great vacation spot for sports enthusiasts. The city also has musical attractions, including the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Opera. If you prefer things a little on the unusual side, visit the Andy Warhol Museum or travel to the mines that hide 160 feet below the surface. Because of the harsh weather, winter is usually an inexpensive time to travel to the Pittsburgh area if you are willing to brave the snow and cold. If not, aim to make your travel arrangements for spring or fall to take advantage of off-season pricing.
