General Pittsburgh Travel Tips

Sep 6, 2007
Traveling to Pittsburgh is always a great option there are so many wonderful activities that you can do, and so much stuff that can keep you busy for any length of time you decide to go on vacation. There are some tips you can follow though to ensure that you are traveling as safely as possible.

First, always remember that it is best to travel with as little cash as possible. Take a debit card or prepaid check card when you are going on vacation. The reason for this is because cash is not replaceable in the event that it is stolen. However, cards allow you to have any money that is stolen replaced without having too many problems. This makes taking a card to use much safer and easier.

Second, always book your hotel in advance. This will allow you to get a better rate on your room, and also make sure that you have a room reserved at the same time. This can be very important if you are planning to travel in the middle of tourist season or even while there are numerous fairs going on in the area. Booking in advance allows you to save the most money possible on your room and ensures you will not be driving around aimlessly in the middle of the night looking for a vacancy.

Third, look around on the travel sites for some suggestion on activities that sound interesting for your family. This will allow you to plan out your vacation in advance to ensure that you are in the right part of town when the activity is open, rather than arriving right after they close. This will help ensure that you spend the majority of your time doing activities that you enjoy rather than looking for something to do.

Fourth, plan your trip around a festival or a fair that you are interested in. This will allow you to take in the normal tourist attractions of the area and also spend some times at one of the great fairs. With so many different fairs to choose from, your biggest task will be deciding which fair you are most interested in. If you have huge problems picking which fair to choose, then plan to stay longer, or come back so you can participate in another fair later on.

As you can see, there are several things you can do to ensure you enjoy your Pittsburgh vacation to the maximum potential. From festivals and fairs to plenty of great tourist attractions, there is lots to do in Pittsburgh that will keep you thoroughly entertained.
