I am going to Wilmerding next month for work related training. Can anyone tell me something about the area (other than it's close to Pittsburgh)? What hotels should I stay at or stay away from. Good places to eat or get a drink. Anything at all would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.

You're going to Wilmerding? I'm sorry.

All it is is a over-the-hill dying/dead steel town. There really is nothing there besides a castle brought over by either Andrew Carnegie or Geo. Westinghouse. I seem to remember a REALLY good chicken restaurant right across the bridge. Which bridge? THE bridge...it is the only way in-and-out of that town in as much as I recall.

For most of your entertainment you'll probably go elsewhere. It sounds bleak, but I'm just being honest.

Thanks for the info...lol. It looks like I will be staying at the Radisson Hotel Pittsburgh 101 Mall Blvd. I hope it's not too far from the epic air brake training center.

If that is near Monroeville Mall its probably 10 minutes from Wilmerding.

The mall area is pretty much strip mall, upon national chain restaurant. Its very commercial, not much else.

If you get the chance try going into Pittsburgh (20 minutes maybe) there is a lot more to do there.
