Welcome to Pittsburgh! What do you want to do first? Not sure yet? Well what about plans for tomorrow? …Well you still have time to decide… Where are you staying? You haven't booked a hotel yet?!?!
Not only are its sports teams a mighty force to be reckoned with, but the city has overcome adversity in a big way. Pittsburgh's affordable standard of living, top-notch health care facilities and cultural attractions combine to make it America's "Most Livable City."
Once a center for heavy industry, today Pittsburgh's skyline has been transformed. Riverfronts are thoughtfully developed, utilized for recreation now more than ever. Businesses look to the environment as an asset, not a challenge. And, best of all, "green" has replaced "smoky" for good.
Pittsburgh is a vibrant, mid-sized city that has the feel of a small town. Its approachability can be seen on the faces of its energetic, hard-working and proud people.
Bike, walk or rollerblade miles of riverfront trails and soak in fantastic urban views. Wrapped in rivers, intertwined with trails and packed with parks, it is a green and outdoor city in close contact with its surrounding countryside. Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens opened its Center for Sustainable Landscapes, one of the world's first certified living buildings, a model of sustainability for architects, scientists, planners and anyone interested in living greener.
In the eyes of many of its visitors, Pittsburgh offers a surprising and unexpected experience, with natural beauty, unique terrain and diverse offerings at every turn. Pittsburgh's history and blue collar image makes the city and its inhabitants approachable and unpretentious.
Make the time to travel to Pittsburgh's Countryside, eight counties located between 30-60 minutes of downtown Pittsburgh, and offering everything from whitewater rafting to sailing to country festivals to hiking and more. Enjoy the slower pace and beautiful landscape of the countryside.
