If someone gets the chance, hope to hear if these are correct or what the mistakes are?

 

1. Pittsburgh was nice.

Pittsburgh güzeldi.

 

2. I went to a Turkish Restaurant in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh´da bir Türk restorana gittim.

 

3. Pittsburgh was warmer than here.

Pittsburgh buradan daha sıcaktı.

 

4. The drive there was long.

Oraya araba sürme uzundu (is uzaktı also OK here?).

Oraya arabayla gitmek uzun sürdü  (is uzaktı also OK here?).

note Turks don´t normally say "drive" they would say "arabayla gitmek" going by car.

Thankyou. I don´t understand this one. Is the ´ın´ in restoranına possessive? If so why is the possessive used?

yes it is possesive 

restoran restaurant

Türk restoranı - Turkish restaurant 

Türk restoranına n is a buffer letter, cos case sufix follows which is ye/ya dative.
