Shop

Very often, all the basics are right within walking distance.

Pittsburgh has its share of malls and suburban meccas—the Monroeville area, the Waterfront, and Robinson Township (IKEA is in Robinson!) are three excellent examples. But the real charm in Pittsburgh shopping is in the locally owned places that dot the landscape and in the convenient shopping options in every neighborhood.

Very often, all the basics are right within walking distance—groceries, hardware, bookstores, dry cleaning, coffee shops, breakfast places. The fact is, living in Pittsburgh often means you don’t need to drive anywhere to get exactly what you need.
