a little help please

Post by Bill Mc » Mon Feb 02, 2009 1:24 pm

hey we are going out to Pittsburgh tomorrow for the parade. being laid off has it's privileges :dance: . i saw that it is starting at the Mellon Arena and working it's way downtown. i have a few questions.

1. is Google maps the easiest way? are they right?
2. how close is the arena to Heinz Field?

we are looking at leaving at 3am to head out. that should be enough time right?

any help from you hockey fans would be a great help as we have never been to Pittsburgh. thanks. :thumbleft:

Heinz Field and Mellon Arena are a couple miles apart then , but it's a very nice walk. I'd park in the parking garage at the Hilton down by the Point State Park (the confluence). Then the stadium , arena , and the park are within walking distance. Pittsburgh is my favorite city andthere are many things to do. KDKA radio (The first radio station) is located between the Hilton and the bridge on the way to Heinz Field.

Market Square is another cool place to go. Benchs for just sitting around , and many shops , bars , and resturants in that area. It is just a few bloks from the Hilton (heading away from the confluence. If you don't feel like doing a lot of walking , take one of the water taxis across the river to or from Heinz Field(if they are operating). Remember to only drink IC Light when the Steelers are in town !

This should help ya out,has the route and times.I would suggest parking at station square and use the PPA bus,its 2 bucks and well worth it.Be prepared for a long walk and plenty of people bumping into ya.They expect 300,000 people to show.Put your wallet in front pocket and have a great time,cheer them boys loud,they had a great season.......especially Ben(Future Hall Of Famer)
