The neighborhood of Carrick,
known to the locals as "the Hilltop," sits just south of downtown Pittsburgh.
The Port Authority trolley station and numerous bus stops located throughout the neighborhood let you travel easily across the city. Residents wanting to rent can choose from spacious townhouses or smaller condos.
Shop for fresh produce and support local farmers at the Carrick Farmers Market, which runs most Wednesdays in the summer and fall. Phillips Park provides many activities for everyone, such as outdoor movies, live jazz concerts in the summer, a dedicated off-leash dog park, fitness walks and 5K runs, and summer day camps.
Stop by Yinz Guys Pizza for a quick slice, wings, or a salad. Afterward, head to Ester's Homemade Candy, which has been in business for over 40 years, and try some chocolate-covered strawberries or homemade caramel covered in chocolate.
