Strip District Walking Tour

The Strip District is a vibrant amalgamation of Pittsburgh’s past, present, and imagined future. It is probably best known locally for food sellers and other businesses that reflect the neighborhood’s long immigrant history. In its 200-plus-year history, however, the Strip has been a site of industry, the region’s wholesale produce distribution hub, a center for nighttime dining and entertainment, and, most recently, home to Pittsburgh’s burgeoning technology sector.

The Strip’s ongoing evolution is mirrored in its architecture. Across a sprawling neighborhood, you will see everything from a small, two-story building constructed as a public bathhouse in 1911 to recent office buildings for the technology companies that have given the Strip a new nickname, “Robotics Row.” Preservation and repurposing of historic buildings have been key to the revitalization of the Strip in the last 20 years, and the tour will center on the historic buildings through which the Strip’s fascinating history is told.
