1. PNC Park- Pittsburgh Pirates (June 19th-21st)
Check any MLB stadium rankings article you want, one thing is clear: PNC Park is arguably the best ballpark in the league. There’s some debate on which one is #1, and that comes down to personal preference.
This beauty checks all the boxes though. Not only do you get a beautiful view of Pittsburgh’s skyline; there’s the Roberto Clemente Bridge that fans can walk across above the Allegheny River. It’s easily got one of the best designs in the league and is the only ballpark built with fewer than three decks since Milwaukee’s County Stadium in the 1950s.
Food to try: Primanti Brothers
Ask anyone from Pittsburgh the one food you need to eat while you’re in the city and this will likely be their answer. It’s been around for 86 years. What is it? It’s a sandwich shop that sells sandwiches that feature different combinations of grilled meat but are then topped with fries and coleslaw (and other various toppings).
There are many options to choose from, but go with the original pastrami and cheese for the true Pittsburgh experience.
Local beer to try: Yuengling Traditional Lager
Just as Primanti Brothers is a classic Pittsburgh food, you can say the same thing about Yeungling being a classic Pittsburgh beer. It’s the oldest operating brewing company in America, and it’s been around for about 190 years. Grab one of their traditional lagers and don’t think twice about it.
