If Fido gets cabin fever during your stay at our pet friendly Holiday Inn® Horel in Pittsburgh, head for nearby Frick Park on Forbes Ave. Pittsburgh's largest park, with 561 acres, features extensive trails, abundant recreational opportunities and an environmental center where you can learn about the park's flora and fauna. The off-leash dog run is on Riverview Trail, but when your dog is elsewhere in the park, he will have to be leashed and under your control.
When it's time to eat, a visit to Cafe Zinho in Shadyside is a must for you and your four-legged friend. Owners Toni and Becky Pais, who originally hail from Portugal, offer outdoor tables where your dog is welcome. Toni, the Executive Chef, mentors students from the Pittsburgh Culinary Institute, so you can count on good food here. A tangy-sweet goat cheese puff pastry is a great appetizer choice, before digging into crab cakes in mushroom-Dijon sauce. The cafe's bright colors and eclectic decor make a cozy roost in which to enjoy a meal.
If your pet is in need of specialty or emergency care close to our Pittsburgh pet friendly Holiday Inn® Hotel, Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialists on Camp Horne Rd offer state-of-the-art care and convenient hours (their office is open 24 hours on weekends and holidays).
