PNC Park is #5 for the amazing view. This ballpark is best enjoyed from the upper deck, especially sitting along the third base side. Stunning views of Pittsburgh, the Allegheny River and the Roberto Clemente Bridge paint the perfect backdrop for a ballgame. Just don’t get stuck in the very last row of the upper deck. Each section up top has a steel beam holding up the roof, located in the middle of the second-to-last row.
At least a dozen restaurants and bars surround the stadium, so there’s plenty to do before a game. The Pirates have very loyal fans that love talking about their homegrown talent.
I’m not big on gimmicks like mascots and between inning promotions but the Pirates have plenty. Overall, it’s a great place to catch a game.
