Explore South Side and other city neighborhoods with new tours

South Side is one of seven city neighborhoods featured on the new Pittsburgh Neighborhood Tours. The other neighborhoods are Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, Mt. Washington, North Side, Oakland, and the Strip District.

The website includes profiles of the neighborhoods, along with travel tips. The site also features several self-guided tours, such as Pious Pittsburgh, Sounds of the City, and Pittsburgh Arts Big and Small.

Fun features for residents and visitors include “Share my Pittsburgh Story”and “Send a Postcard” sections. The site even offers information on special events and ways that urban explorers can either “Spare no Expense” or get “Cheap Thrills” in the neighborhoods.

Pittsburgh Neighborhood Tours was financed by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

This site was funded in part by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh on behalf of the City of Pittsburgh, Mayor Tom Murphy, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Federal Government.
