If you're into bars/nightlife, check out the southside (5 minute drive from Mt. Washington). It's a mile long strip of nothing but bars and food places.
North shore has the casino, Carnegie Science Center, and both stadiums.
There are also museums but you can research that online.
Pittsburghers will tell you to try Primanti's. Personally I think it's very plain and overrated, but try it if you're into eating "local" foods. Peppi's is much better, imo. Regardless, they're both scattered throughout the area. You can google it.
Also the Cathedral of Learning, part of the University of Pittsburgh, is the tallest (or 2nd tallest?) education building in the world. You're no longer allowed inside of it, however, due to daily bomb threats this past spring.
I'm a student at Pitt, and can confirm that the bomb threat situation has been taken care of. Visitors are now allowed inside of the Cathedral. It's a beautiful building and well worth the visit if you have the time.
