Pittsburgh’s Most Instagram Worthy Places

This blog post was made in collaboration with Alaska Airlines and all my opinions are my own.

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I knew very little about Pittsburgh. I knew the city was home to the Steelers (thanks to the Steelers vs. Seahawks Superbowl 2006 game) and that the Pittsburgh’s main industry for a long time was steel.

Over these past few years, I’ve had friends from Carnegie Mellon and my boyfriend who’s visited the city for business trips tell me how much they enjoyed their time in the city. So when the opportunity to work with Alaska Airlines to highlight the non-stop Seattle to Pittsburgh route came up, I knew I had to see this city.

I was pleasantly surprise to find great food, incredibly welcoming people, pockets of color, and of course, Instagram worthy places all over the city. But before we jump into the most instagrammable places in Pittsburgh, where is Pittsburgh?

Where is Pittsburgh?

Located in Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is 5 hours west of Philadelphia and only two hours away from Cleveland Ohio.

Fun Facts about Pittsburgh:

  • There are three rivers that converge at Pittsburgh: the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monogahela River. These three rivers made Pittsburgh an ideal area to settle in for trade and military defense.
  • In 1959, the city was impacted by the 116 day long industry steel strike. This strike marked at a turning point for the steel industry as Americans turned to importing steel. The steel industry declined the next 40 years with 29 steel companies going bankrupt.
  • In 1869, Heinz Company was founded in Pittsburgh by Henry John Heinz.
  • Pittsburgh gets more rain and snow then Seattle!
  • There are 29 colleges in Pittsburgh. You’ll find University of Pittsburgh, Point Park University, Carnegie Mellon University and so much more in the city!

Alaska Airlines: Seattle to Pittsburgh Flights

If you’re heading to Pittsburgh in 2019 or looking for a new city to travel to in the near future, you should definitely checkout Pittsburgh. There are so many great Instagram worthy spots and delicious food in the city! Nonstop flights from Seattle to Pittsburgh start at $179 too! The direct flight to Pittsburgh is about 4+ hours.

One thing I always appreciate about Alaska Airlines is their customer service on flights. The flight attendants were so kind and even stopped by our seats to give Karya and me recommendations about what to see in Pittsburgh. To help the time go by, we also watched movies with the Alaska Airlines Gogo Entertainment App and relaxed in first class.

Would you believe me if I told you that Market Square was founded in 1784? It was originally called the Diamond and it survived the massive fire in 1845. It still stands today as a community space for locals and tourist to dine, eat, shop, and gather.

During the holiday season you’ll find this beautiful Christmas tree and ice skating rink set up! I highly recommend stopping by Primanti Bros (a historic Pittsburgh sandwich shop) and the Wine Bar in Market St. Grocery after a nice dinner in the city!
