 Why not vacation in Carnegie? Instead of Chautauqua on the Lake try “Carnegie on the Crick”! In addition to the eclectic eateries Bob Batz Jr. reported on (“A Food Walk in Carnegie” and “Apis Mead & Winery Opens,” July 31) — and I would add Bob’s Diner at one end of the culinary spectrum and Cafe Delhi on the other — there’s plenty to plan your dining experiences around.

From fine antique jewelry to stationery to furnishings to whimsical and arty gifts and accessories, you’ll find it on Main Street. Health and fitness fans will find pilates, yoga, aerobics and tai chi. Cultural life abounds. Art and jazz are happy companions at 3rd Street Art Gallery. The Clay Place is a mecca for potters from well beyond the region and a great place to find affordable, artist-made treasures. Off the Wall Theater presents an amazing range of recent plays, and the Pittsburgh New Works Festival divides its time between there and “Carnegie Carnegie Hall.”

The Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall, a beautiful historic landmark facility overlooking Main Street, offers productions ranging from Mozart operas to Avenue Q to the Nutcracker to Thomas Dolby and just about everything in between. Its rare, national treasure of a Civil War room attracts visitors from as far away as Shanghai.

Dining, history, architecture, shopping , art, theater, jazz, poetry, opera, fitness. Why not plan a few forays into Carnegie? We’re open all year round.
