Destination of the Day: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA

Destination 9 in the series "Fourth and Goal"

Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4-0). Opened on 18 August 2001, seating 65,050. Sitting on the Ohio River across from downtown, Heinz Field is one of a impressive collection of new attractions in the North Shore area: PNC Park, the Rivers Casino, and the Carnegie Science Center.  Plans also include extending the T from downtown to the district making it much easier for the CTer to visit the area.  A hockey fan?  You are in luck.  The annual NHL Winter Classic will be played there 1 January between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals.
