Top Customer Reviews
All moon Books are excellent which makes this book even better. As a Pittsburgh are resident I have read many pittsburgh Guide books and this is the most informative and useful. He explains all the top sights in Pittsburgh and describes them thoroughly( some guidebooks just give you a few sentences Dan Eldridge writes at least 2 paragraphs on everything. He explains all the tourist attractions in Great detail.
Then he goes on to cover all the dining establishments and what ones not to miss. He also compares the Mount Washington Restaurants which is the most premiere place to eat in Pittsburgh because all of the restaurants have a view of the skyline.
He also covers arts and nightlife and describes a lot of shopping.
there is also a very nice chapter on recreation in and outside of pittsburgh( my favorite is Kayak pittsburgh where you can rent a Kayak and go around downtown.
He also covers hotels budget and expensive.
It is actually quite enjoyable to read and one night I read it for a few hours like I would a novel. He writes a lot of interesting things about local history.
there is also chapters on excursions, the background, and essentials such as gettin here and around( Pittsburgh International Airport was rated the #1 airport in the country for customer service and amenities).
overall this book is excellent and will leave you knowing Pittsburgh just like any local would.
Also, most of the reviews are long. Unlike the average guidebook, which usually only writes a couple sentences about a place, this Moon Pittsburgh really goes into depth. There are little factoids and bits of trivia and history hidden on pretty much every page of this book. It's also written much more like a book or magaizine article, so you get a feeling of the author's personality - and he definitely knows a LOT about Pittsburgh, which is apparently a more interesting (and more weird!!) city than I ever thought it was.
This book rules. Even if you've been to Pittsburgh dozens of times before, like I have (or even if you live there!), you are gonna be finding yourself going out and looking for all these weird places in the book right after you start reading it. (Like the haunted church in Millvale!!)
