What to Do Without Tree Care in Pittsburgh
Home to the largest and most advanced movie studio in the eastern U.S. and dubbed the "City of Bridges," Pittsburgh has a range of places to see and explore.
Since its founding in 1758, Pittsburgh has been tied to much of American history. Not only was it the starting place of Lewis and Clark's expedition, but it's also where the Whiskey Rebellion and Great Railroad Strike of 1877 occurred. It's worth your time to explore the history of Steel City.
Pittsburgh has a long legacy of culture and there are dozens of buildings testifying to that. Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece, the Fallingwater House, is just outside Pittsburgh. There's also the Cathedral of Learning, part of the University of Pittsburgh. It happens to be the second tallest collegiate building in the world.
Interested in current culture or film? '"The Dark Knight Rises" was filmed in Oakland, North Shore, and downtown Pittsburgh. Perhaps a Batman weekend is in order. Speaking of film, the original puppets from "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood" are on display in Pittsburgh. You'll find King Friday XIII, Henrietta Pussycat, Queen Sarah, Elaine Fairchilde, Daniel Tiger, X the Owl, and Grandpere in the Children's Museum. You can see other puppets hidden away among the other TV artifacts.
Another museum tied to film and television is the Robot Hall of Fame. It's the largest permanent exhibit of robotics in the world. There you can find C-3PO, Gort, WALL-E, and robots that have advanced technology. You can even weigh in what robot should be added to the museum.
