Posted 06/29/18 Team Vaco

In this edition of Free Yourself Friday, we’re taking you northeast to the Steel City where Vaco is proud to provide expert consulting, permanent placement, executive search, and strategic staffing.

Yes, we specialize in premier talent & solutions, but most importantly, we help people find freedom. We believe in the power of an entrepreneurial spirit, staying team focused, and a true work-life balance.

So whether you find yourself in The Burgh for business or you’re just passing through, our local Vaco office has shared  their top five places to Free Yourself in Pittsburgh.

1. Primanti Bros.

Joe Primanti had a vision and so during the Great Depression, he opened up the original Primanti Bros. on the downtown Strip District – still there today! The iconic Pittsburgh Primanti’s sandwich has fries and slaw piled high on the sandwich. With restaurant locations all across the Pittsburgh region, this is a must for anyone passing through the city.

2. Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh

The Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and Andy Warhol Museums have something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind date night, meaningful family fun, or simply to be inspired by the wonders of art, science, and natural history, you’ll discover it at Carnegie Museums.

3. Mt. Washington Overlook

A grand view of Pittsburgh’s skyline awaits atop Mt. Washington. Running the length of the mount, Grandview Avenue provides unique vantage points of Pittsburgh’s beautiful skyline. “Restaurant Row” boasts stunning views coupled with elegant, fine dining. Pull yourself away from the view on Shiloh Street for delicious ice cream, yummy baked goods, ice cold beer and bountiful breakfasts. Mt. Washington is a feast for the eyes, and the stomach too!

4. City of Champions

Pittsburgh bleeds black and gold. No matter what time of year you happen to be in town, the Penguins, Pirates, or Steelers are likely to be playing. See the Steelers play at Heinz Field, the Pirates play at PNC Park, or the Penguins play at PPG Paints Arena.

5. Pittsburgh Cultural District

Set within a 14-square block, the Pittsburgh Cultural District encompasses over 90 retail shops, 50 dining establishments, seven world-class theaters, eight public parks, and a dozen art galleries.
