Would you like to have an interesting and memorable holiday? You should definitely visit Pittsburgh. This is the “city of bridges”. Indeed, the city has more than 450 bridges, and this is more than in any other city in the United States. It is a “city of iron and smoke”, or “steel city” because Pittsburgh was once the metallurgical capital of the world.
This city has something to offer to your attention, namely a huge choice of all kinds of entertainment. In the daytime, taste whiskey at the Wigle Whiskey distillery in the Strip District, visit the concert hall or exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum, and at night in front of you will open their doors noisy nightclubs located on East Carson Street.
To feel you comfortable it is better to rent a car, but be very careful on the roads. There are quite a few one-way streets in Pittsburgh, several difficult intersections, steep climbs, and a couple of highways with a complex system.
According to 14cars.com, one of the best car rentals in Pittsburgh is called Avis and a lot of young people turn to them when they need a car.
In Pennsylvania, the age of renting a car is 21. This also applies to car rental in Pittsburgh. If for a certain group there is not enough group/age, then, in this case, an additional fee of 20.00 Euro (excluding VAT) per day is charged during the first 10 days of the lease.
Be careful if you see a herd of horses running along the road during the day, you must stop about 1/6 miles away and wait for them to pass.
In addition, when driving at night, you are obliged to stop after each mile to make sure there are no horses.

Place to go on a rental car
When you took a car from Avis at Pittsburgh International airport, travel to the suburbs of Pittsburgh to visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. The museum has 20 exhibition halls, but the hall with dinosaur skeletons is the most unusual and memorable.
Getting out of the downtown is to visit the university area and see at least one campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Above the campus, stands an impressive Cathedral of the Teaching, a 42-story skyscraper, built in the style of the Gothic Renaissance.
If you love art, you definitely need to move to the Andy Warhol Museum. Pictures of the artist, famous for the portrait of Marilyn Monroe and still life with a can of tomato soup, have found their place in the best museums in the world.
A very unusual but interesting place to visit is Heinz Stadium. Yes, the stadium that was named after the very brand under which ketchup is produced. Heinz has built a luxurious yellow stadium for Pittsburgh, which afterward received the name of a sponsor. Speaking of ketchup: it was in Pittsburgh where the world famous “Big Mac” burger was released.
And, of course, be sure to climb the funicular to the summit of Mount Washington for a wonderful view of the city.
