    My hometown: A great place to explore. I recommend you check it out; there's something here for everyone to enjoy (so don't let the "only 4 tribes tagged" fool you)!

    Amazing city. Bursting with energy in many scenes. Art, history, night life, food, music, local culture, etc. Also great city if your expertise is in medicine or technology. Great universities and colleges.

    Pittsburgh is developing a reputation as one of the u.s. cities to watch. I found it very livable, relaxed and nice when I visited a friend there.

    One of my favorite small American cities. The many bridges and limited land create a beautiful landscape and offer a level of density that's uncommon for cities this size. As with most of the rust belt, as industrial jobs went away the city suffered, but it has already revitalized itself more than most other cities nearby. There is a good restaurant scene, many densely clustered universities and a nice collection of small, creative businesses. This leads to a large student population and plenty to do within walking distance of much of the city.

    Pittsburgh has a beautiful waterfront and beautiful bridges, but time hasn't been kind to the rest of the city. People are making a go of it though. Driving in from the airport takes you through a tunnel to give you maximum effect when it displays the city to you.

    I've been really enjoying getting to know Pittsburgh. It's got a burgeoning and very hip bar and restaurant scene, the people are very nice, and it's just cool. I've been traveling here regularly for work, and it's grown on me very quickly. The airport is also super easy- I've never waited in a security line for more than 5 minutes, so you gotta love that.

    Located where the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers join. Pittsburgh was once one of the most important cities in the U.S., at the center of the steel trade, and an important shipping and railroad center. The city fell into hard times with the decline of industry and manufacturing, but it has definitely been making a come back. There are a lot of great cultural venues, and it is a big time sports town.

    Pittsburgh is the hart and soul of steel country. This a large industrial city that has all kinds of activities to do that would meet anyone's needs. Disability access is limited and disability parking is very hard to fine.

    Its the most livable city in the United States! Also, its home of the 6 time world champs Pittsburgh Steelers, this is a proud city. It's smaller then other known cities but it's like one big family. Every is down for a good time and everyone knows each other. There is so much going on here and you'll never get bored!

    A cool industrial city that is up and coming! Take advantage of the fact that it's still relatively cheap to travel here. The rivers are beautiful and the food is delightful.

    The City of Champions, The Steel City...and one of my FAVORITE cities in this world. Pittsburgh has a fascinating working class history and there are lots of museums and art exhibitions to help you unearth those stories. At the same time there is a lively, young night life and lots of places to hang out and enjoy the beautiful river views as well as the many green spaces this once industrial giant has.

    What a fabulous city! Pittsburgh boasts a lively arts and cultural scene, world class educational institutions, professional sports teams, and many ethnic neighborhoods. A city of hills, rivers, bridges, and modern high rises, Pittsburgh is more beautiful than many people realize. Pittsburgh provides a great setting for a city vacation.

Description

A sports-mad city built on industry, Pittsburgh is nevertheless one of America’s more naturally appealing metropolises, situated on the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, and full of hills and trees. Due to the efforts of Andrew Carnegie, Pittsburgh was for years the world’s leading steel producer, while the names of other American business families like Frick, Heinz and Mellon ... read more
linger on various cultural bequests. Pittsburgh natives are friendly and unpretentious with a reputation for speaking very quickly. Since the 1960s the city has been undergoing a long term facelift resulting in a combination of close knit neighborhoods, skyscrapers and parks that brings a whole new feel to Pittsburgh without erasing its history of immigration and industry.
