Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area offer a lot of entertaining options to players outside of the poker tournament while they’re here for the WPTDS Pittsburgh Main Event. Here are a few things the WPTDeepStacks crew recommends checking out if you have some free time at this tournament stop.

Si tienes unas pocas horas: The Carnegie Science Center, Heinz Field, and PNC Park are all in the same neighborhood as the casino. Or you could just simply stroll along the banks of the Ohio River on a tournament break for great views of downtown. The Andy Warhol Museum is also just a few blocks away near PNC Park, which is considered by many to be one of the finest MLB ballparks in the country. North Shore restaurants and bars a short walk from the casino include Southern Tier Brewing, Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse, Burgatory, and Jerome Bettis’ Grille 36.

Un poco más lejos: Downtown Pittsburgh and the rest of the city is home to many great attractions and culture just across the river from the casino. The Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History can both be found on the University of Pittsburgh of campus, and while you’re there be sure to check out the Tower of Learning, too (42-story tower in the middle of campus). No culinary visit to Pittsburgh would be complete without a visit to Primanti Brothers for one of their iconic sandwiches, and if you need something to wash that meal down then look no further than The Church Brew Works, which is a brewery housed in a former cathedral. You can also take the trip up the Duquesne Incline for the quintessential view of the Golden Triangle with the Pittsburgh skyline in the background.

Si tienes a tu familia contigo en el viaje: El Zoológico de Pittsburgh y el Acuario PPG seguramente entretendrán a los más pequeños, y Pittsburgh también alberga el Aviario Nacional. También está el Museo de los Niños de Pittsburgh para mantener felices a los niños. Si desea algo un poco más distintivo de Pittsburgh, entonces los recorridos por Rivers of Steel serían una opción interesante para aprender sobre el patrimonio productor de acero que convirtió a esta ciudad en una potencia industrial.

El centro de Pittsburgh

Si embolsó su vuelo del día 1 y tiene un día libre: Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Falling Water is just over an hour away from the casino, and tours are available daily. If you’re a really big fan of Groundhog Day (and the Bill Murray movie by the same name), then you can visit Punxsutawney that is also just over an hour away from the casino to see the city that hosts America’s quirkiest holiday. Just a half-hour from the city center is Kennywood Amusement Park, which is open most weekends during the offseason.

If you’re looking to watch the game: Head to the new $5 million BetRivers Sportsbook right in the middle of the casino gaming floor. This 5,500-square-foot space is the perfect place to take in all of the sports action at Rivers Casino with 24 flat-screen, high-definition 86-inch monitors, 33 self-service betting kiosks, and six betting windows.

Y además de todas estas opciones, Rivers Casino tiene una gran selección de juegos de póquer y el casino también ofrece blackjack, dados, ruleta y muchos otros juegos. Las opciones gastronómicas incluyen el recién inaugurado Flipt, donde los jugadores pueden pedir comida rápidamente en el mostrador durante los descansos cortos. Otras opciones incluyen Andrew's Steak & Seafood, Wheelhouse, Grandview Buffet y Ciao, que es donde los jugadores pueden obtener su dosis de cafeína a solo unos pasos de la sala de póquer. Elijas lo que elijas, definitivamente hay mucho que hacer aquí mientras estés en la ciudad para asistir al evento principal del WPTDS Pittsburgh.
