Visit Pittsburgh And Enjoy “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”

As the release of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Mister Rogers’ neighborhood has expanded. While Rogers grew up in Latrobe, PA and later called the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh home, the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel would now like you to be their neighbor.


To celebrate the famous Pittsburgh icon and the release of the film, the hotel invites guests to explore the neighborhood with a new two-night package. The package includes:

  • A welcome gift including a Mister Roger’s style cardigan to wear around town and Life’s Journeys According to Mister Rogersbook

  • Two adult tickets to the Heinz History Center to explore the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” exhibit

  • A self-guided tour of Pittsburgh’s Fred Rogers landmarks curated by our hotel’s Navigator

  • Discounted valet parking

  • Daily breakfast credit of $35 toward Braddock’s Rebellion restaurant

  • A portion of the proceeds for this package goes to supporting Heinz History Center’s preservation of the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” set so future generations will be able to continue to explore.

This hotel package is a great way to experience all that Mister Rogers loved. While in Pittsburgh, visitors can explore:

Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

Senator John Heinz History Center

Mr. Rogers statue and parklet – Tribute to Children

Mr. Rogers used to swim in the former YMCA’s pool, now the Ace Hotel (fun fact)

Pennsylvania Trolley Museum

Plan for the perfect family weekend by visiting Pittsburgh. I grew up watching Mister Rogers and look forward to our trip this spring, Keep and eye for my updates and visit for other events around the city.
