The Station Square Experience
Located along the river, Station Square is the premier destination for Pittsburgh's best dining, nightlife and entertainment. The centerpiece of the 52-acre riverfront complex is the striking Fountain at Bessemer Court, featuring hundreds of multi-colored water jets soaring in the air as they dance to music. Station Square is also home to some of the most popular things to do in Pittsburgh, including scenic river tours and historic cable car incline rides. Visitors have several choices for tours; set sail aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet as you cruise along Pittsburgh's three rivers or take a journey in a World War II amphibious vehicle on land and water with Just Ducky Tours. Head to Paradise Tours for a unique ride on Segways or enjoy some of the best views in the city and ride to the top of Mt. Washington on a cable car trek on the Duquesne or Monongahela Inclines to take in the breathtaking views of city's skyline.
Pittsburgh sports fans are some of the most loyal around. Our city has been voted "Best Sports City" by Sporting News and USA TODAY's 10 Best Reader's Choice poll named Pittsburgh as one of the winners of the "Best City for Sports" travel award.
