Staying in Pittsburgh for a weekend in June. I will be on somewhat of a tight budget and wondering what are fun things to do on a weekend that is either free or inexpensive? Thanks!
There are free tours of the Allegheny Observatory and you can look through the same telescope that proved the rings of Saturn were not solid back in the 19th century. There is also a free walking tour of the Battle of Homestead Historic Site. Get a downloadable brochure and audio file here (http://www.touranytime.org/tours/battle/) around the Waterfont area with shopping, restaurants and bars.
Mentioned in this answer:
The Three River's Arts Festival begins June 6-14th. Free concerts through out plus great visual arts all in the Downtown area. Just fun to go sit at the point & relax on the grass. Many vendors for food & crafts but it is all free open to the public.
