The First Niagara Pavilion is located in little Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, near the border of Ohio and not too far from West Virginia. While it may be convenient to multiple states, it's pretty far out there. You'll find plenty of bucolic beauty, but not much in the way of a bustling metropolis unless you head to Pittsburgh, which is about a 40-minute drive away.
Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village
With a mission to explore the history of Western Pennsylvania, The Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village offers a full day of exploration that will be well worth the 35-minute drive from the First Niagara Pavilion. As an archaeological site, you can look back into the past 16,000 years of local history through interactive displays, from the Native American populations to the European settlers who called this area home.
Raccoon Creek State Park
Just a 15-minute drive away, Raccoon Creek State Park is the perfect place to while away the day in the warmer months. Swim in the cool waters, paddle along in a rented kayak, ride a horse along the trail, try your hand at fishing or simply hike the day away before you head to the Pavilion.
Pittsburgh has always been a draw, but the city's recent rejuvenation efforts have made it all the more so. Peruse the walls of the Andy Warhol Museum, the Carnegie Art Museum, Carnegie Science Museum, or Carnegie Science Center to broaden your mind - and maybe your soul. Hop onto a Terror Trolley for a night of ghostly fun or take in the local lore at the Frick History Museum. You'll find you don't have enough time to fit everything in!
Walden's @ 1709 Main
Featuring home fries that can't be beat, burgers, a "sorta vegetarian" menu, meatloaf, and cobbler in a jar, this down home menu will make you feel nurtured and full on your way to the concert.
Just a 10-minute drive from the First Niagara Pavilion, the Bavington Roadhouse is a great quick option. With wings and hot subs on the dinner menu and a full lineup of specialty beer, you'll be refreshed and ready to hit the road again when you head out.
Barb's Stateline Restaurant
Located just over the border in Weirton, West Virginia, Barb's Stateline Restaurant is a fun greasy spoon with friendly staff to treat you right. From omelettes to burgers and homemade biscuits, you won't be disappointed you stopped in.
Given the remote location, you'll want to make sure you leave plenty of time to get there and park. Because everybody's getting there by car, and there's only one entrance, queues can get pretty bad at the most popular shows.
The First Niagara Pavilion is located in Burgettstown, PA, about a 40-minute drive outside of Pittsburgh. There is no public transit, so you'll have to drive.
There is parking by the venue. The cost is included in your ticket price, but you can upgrade to VIP parking for $30.
Let's just say you can expect to pay $6 for water, and prices go up from there.
You can expect standard American stadium fare here, including nachos, pretzels, and craft draft beers. Since it is an outdoor amphitheatre, you can bring a small ziplock bag of your own goodies.
There's no WiFi and cell phone service is spotty.
Usually an hour before the show starts.

Overall, a good time was had by all!
Disliked: Parking - the parking lot was closed - there was nowhere to park and wait for the pavilion to open.
Brian G, Watsontown Mon, 30 June 2014
Liked: Awesome show - great seats and lots of room. We will be attending again. Loved Journey and Steve Miller Band!
Disliked: Should have a better food selection.
Jeffrey F, Youngwood Sun, 29 June 2014
Liked: Nice set up; my seats were 5 rows back and right in the middle. Journey and Steve Miller both still rock!
Disliked: Long time at end to get out of the lot. Longer than any concert or sporting event I've been to.

Was really crowded but was a great performance. Needed more toilets and the lighting made it hard to find your way back to your area after dark. Did not take as long to get out as I thought it would. I would not hesitate to go again - had a great time.
Scott, Sugar Grove Mon, 9 September 2013
Liked: Plenty of things to see before the show.
Disliked: Long line for restrooms between shows.
Catherine, Burnt Hills Sat, 31 August 2013
Liked: The venue itself was great and even the lawn seats made for a good viewing of the concert.
Disliked: Leaving the pavilion was a nightmare - there is only one exit from the facility and it took over an hour and 15 minutes just to get out of the parking lot. There was a lack of traffic control both in the venue itself and upon exiting. While the venue itself was a good experience, dealing with the lack of traffic control will make me never consider this as an option to attend another concert.
