2012 NHL Draft: Things to Do While Visiting Pittsburgh and Consol Energy Center

Last week, the NHL announced that the 2012 entry draft would be held in Pittsburgh, Pa. at Consol Energy Center, the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Consol Energy Center, or CEC, opened last year and seats over 18,000 people for hockey games. The city of Pittsburgh, meanwhile, has a population of around 300,000 people.

Aside from a great sports culture, Pittsburgh also has museums, parks, great places to eat and other tourist attractions worth visiting while you're in town.

If you're thinking about traveling to Western Pennsylvania for the draft next June, put these attractions on your to-do list. I've come up with things to do in both the arena and around Pittsburgh.

And if any of you native Pittsburghers are reading this (or should I say yinz?), please let me know what else visitors should see while they're in the Steel City.
