Three of the Best Things to Do in Melbourne

Three of the Best Things to Do in Melbourne

Usually, when people mentioned the country of Australia, they think of Sydney. But for some people, that isn’t even the first thing that comes to mind. Because Melbourne is actually a city that rivals Sydney in a lot of ways. 

Sure, Sydney has a lot of tourist attractions, but Melbourne is a hip and metropolitan city that is filled with diversity, unique characters, luscious wildlife, and so much more. And to help you realize that, here are three of the best things to do in Melbourne. 

#1 Drink the best coffee. 

There is no doubt about it, Melbourne is the city go to when you need your coffee fix. It’s been voted as the best city that houses the best coffee, even beating cities like Rome and Vienna

The people here are even really proud of their caffeine heritage, so don’t try to ask them out for cheap coffee. And why would you, when at around almost every corner is a cafe just waiting to be visited! 

So the very first thing you should do when you visit Melbourne is trying their coffee. But, I have a feeling you already have thanks to a green mermaid that’s been seen across the globe. 

#2 Rock out. 

Though Melbourne is known for its great coffee, what it’s not known for, and criminally so, is its passion for live music. Particularly, rock music

Not a lot of people know this, but at almost every street corner is a cafe, and also a live band playing their own songs for people to listen to. Rock music is a staple for this city, so make sure to stay and listen to one or two bands during your stay, trust me, it’s worth it! 

Some pretty common places to find said bands are the Corner Hotel, the Evelyn Hotel, the Ding-Dong Lounge, and the Palais Theater. So you really will be hearing a lot of rock everywhere you go! 

#3 Take a river cruise. 

There’s no better way to learn about a city than to take a tour! And better yet, a river cruise! And the city of Melbourne is no different. To find the nearest cruise you can get, and take it. 

The main body of water you’ll be cruising through is probably the Yarra River, which is a river that separates the Melbourne city center from the main city itself. There are a lot of operators to take you on a cruise, so don’t worry about being left out. 

And there’s more than one way to get across this river too. Because here you can also go kayaking in order to get across. It’s a fun and educational way to tour the city, isn’t it? 


Melbourne is a city of taste and etiquette. And though that is the case, it also remains true to its Aussie roots with all the adventures and fun you can have here. So grab a cruise along Yarra River, listen to the local band, and sip on the best coffee in the world. There is no life greater than that!…

The City of Pittsburg, and Why You Should Visit.

The City of Pittsburg, and Why You Should Visit.

Known for being the second-largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, the City of Pittsburg has not been really the most popular among the tourists. This is due to the fact that over the past few years, it hasn’t really had that many attractions for tourists to visit. The Steel City lost a lot of its inhabitants when the deindustrialization period started, and since then it has never been the same. 

Until recently! Pittsburg has once again opened its doors to the people of the world to visit. Just as long as everybody practices social distancing and wears masks. So if you’re planning to visit the Steel City, then here are some of the best reasons to do so! 

A Grand Entrance. 

It is a city with one of the best and most beautiful welcomes to all those new. As you emerge from the Fort Pitt Tunnel, you will be greeted with a spectacular view of the city, as well as three rivers meeting at one point. This is a pretty famous tourist destination, as this is the only city where you can actually experience such a beautiful scene. 

Just remember that when you do go there, try practicing social distancing as a lot of other people will most likely show up as well. And it would be best to also sanitize, just to be extra safe out there. 

A City of Rivers and Bridges. 

The Steel City lives up to its name, as it is one covered in more than 400 bridges. This is thanks to the fact that the city is just beside 3 three rivers, so for easier access, the people from before used steel in order to get to the other side. This also allows easy access to the different parts of the city, which can be pretty convenient for you, especially since it’ll be your first time traveling here.

The Nightlife. 

Now, most people wouldn’t think much of the nightlife of a city like Pittsburg. Often times, it’s seen as really boring or probably non-existent even. But in reality, the nightlife in Steel City is very much alive and kicking. And you yourself can experience this when you know the right places. 

Pittsburg has bars like the Thunderbird Cafe where you can enjoy a night out with your friends and have a bottle of beer or two. But if you’re really looking for that high paced and wild night, then the Club Cafe is the place to go. There are more all around the city, but that’s up to you find now. Also, Pittsburg has produced some pretty amazing local bands out here as well. So if that’s more of your vibe, then watch out for Anti-Flag, Black Moth Super Rainbow, and The Cynics


The City of Pittsburg has been seen as a boring and uneventful place for long enough. Though its history has been tough, it has remained tougher, much like the steel it once produced. Steel City is ready to show the world a brighter and better place for them to enjoy. So if you’re ever around, have a look, you might be able to have the time of your life here! …
