Pittsburgh Travel Guide

Pittsburgh Overview

Built by hard-bitten immigrants who were drawn to her steel mills, the city of Pittsburgh is now sitting back on its laurels and offering a more leisurely and aesthetically pleasing lifestyle to residents and visitors alike. Once dubbed 'the Smoky City', Pittsburgh's mills have closed down and the emphasis now is on making the most of the city's natural beauty. Pittsburgh is finally doing justice to its situation, lying between the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers with the Allegheny Mountains in the background. No wonder the city and environs now boasts the largest concentration of pleasure boats in America, while its thriving ethnic neighbourhoods surround a clean, friendly metropolitan centre filled with trees, shops, restaurants, museums, galleries and theatres. Attractions abound in this scenic city from the world's fastest continuous track roller-coaster to the largest single-artist museum in the United States; and from an eerie Gothic mansion to free summer concerts in a beautiful park.
