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.
They lifted the no access on it, I believe. The bomb threats for Pitt are long over! (Sooo annoying!)
