Yes, we specialize in talent & solutions, but most importantly, we help people find freedom. We believe in the power of an entrepreneurial spirit, staying team focused, and 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.
The iconic Pittsburgh Primanti's sandwich has the fries and the slaw piled high right on the sandwich. With restaurant locations all across the Pittsburgh region, this is a must for anyone passing through the city. The original Primanti Bros. is located in Pittsburgh's downtown Strip District.
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 (America's best ballpark), or the Penguins play at PPG Paints Arena.
5. Pittsburgh Cultural District
Set within a 14-square block, the Pittsburgh Cultural District encompasses over 50 dining establishments, seven world-class theaters, eight public parks and art installations, and a dozen art galleries. Grabbing a bite to eat and then heading to the theater or cabaret always makes for a great night - not to mention, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is world renowned!
