Vacation Travel Guide
PNC Park showing a city

Root for the Pittsburgh Pirates at this iconic stadium, which blends a timeless ballpark atmosphere with modern amenities.

Home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, PNC Park is considered one of the country’s best major league ballparks. In addition to offering gorgeous views of the downtown Pittsburgh skyline and riverfront, the park features an intimate design that ensures every fan feels close to the game. Watch the Pirates play, explore the park’s exhibits and enjoy classic ballpark food.

Opened in 2001, the 38,362-seat park draws inspiration from the city for its exposed blue steel, a nod to Pittsburgh’s steel-industry heritage. With seating across two levels, the park is designed to provide most spectators with fantastic views of the city’s skyline.

Stroll along the Riverwalk, which stretches between PNC Park and the Allegheny River.This area opens 30 minutes before the gates for ticket holders on game days. The general public is welcome on non-game days. Enjoy beautiful views of Pittsburgh as you walk along the river.

Be sure to check out the statues that mark the park’s five entrances. Look for Hall of Famer Willie Stargell on the third base side of the stadium and J.P. "Honus" Wagner at the main entrance.

Examine Highmark Legacy Square, which is found inside the park’s left field entrance. This interactive exhibit focuses on baseball’s “Negro Leagues,” particularly the Homestead Gray and Pittsburgh Crawford teams. Watch videos dedicated to African-American achievements in baseball and see life-size bronze statues of some of the leagues’ greatest players.

Don’t leave without trying some food from the concession stands and restaurants found in the park. Sample classic Cracker Jacks and hotdogs or try a sandwich from Pittsburgh’s famous Primanti Brothers.

Let the kids burn off some steam at the Kids Play Land, which is open for children from 5 to 10 years old, with parental supervision. Located near the right field gate entrance, the play area features a miniature version of PNC Park.

PNC Park is located in downtown Pittsburgh. It can be reached by car or riverboat, as well as on foot by taking the Riverwalk or crossing over the Roberto Clemente Bridge from downtown.

"The hotel was great but there were a few things that showed some where in tear that might need to be updated. The Buffay was good but they didn’t replenish it very quickly when we were there. All in all though it is a beautiful hotel and I enjoyed it."
