Ultimate Downtown Pittsburgh holiday tour

There are so many sights and sounds of the holiday season in Downtown Pittsburgh.

It all might seem overwhelming. But fear not, Rossilynne Culgan at The Incline has detailed a fantastic walking tour of twinkling lights, trees, shops and all sorts of holiday magic.

Rossilynne’s tour takes you to nine different stops in Pittsburgh, including some of my favorites: the Horne’s tree and the PPG Place ice rink. Check out below the Incline’s post to see a few bonus stops I added.

  • S.W. Randall Toyes and Giftes, 630 Smithfield St. — take a look at the windows or hop inside for the ultimate toy story.
  • Kaufmann’s Clock, Fifth Ave. and Smithfield St. — The windows once dazzled Downtown shoppers. Though the store is closed, attempts at keeping the holiday window tradition continue.

Rossilynne’s tour is perfect for today and Dec. 23 as you welcome long lost Pittsburghers back home.

But remember: the Christmas market at Market Square closes Dec. 23! But the tree and Miracle bar remain a little bit after Christmas.
