Urban and energetic, street-smart and book-smart, marrying the East Coast and Midwest, the city of Pittsburgh is making a comeback. Don't rely on us either-- talk to Newsweek magazine, which just named Pittsburgh as America's 11th best in its list of the fifty best cities in the country. If you consider yourself a true urbanite, you will be in hog heaven as you wander this historic, artistic, and cultural city.
One way to look at Pittsburgh is just as a big college town, with all that implies. The University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon both live here, as do their students and world-class faculty. For all their credentials, these institutions are no ivory towers, either. Rather, the cultural and intellectual life of these fine universities informs that of the city itself-- just look at the Carnegie Museums and Science Center. Pittsburgh is a city that has always led the way in science, industry, and technology, and it shows no signs of slowing down today. Distinctive neighborhoods add to the sense of urban energy and diversity that the universities provide.
In the city where Andy Warhol lived (and where the Andy Warhol Museum is located today) art, architecture, and all manner of aesthetics are taking center stage. Don't miss the Warhol Museum, but also make time for a walking tour of some of Pittsburgh's steel-era buildings. Conventional Pittsburgh is not, at least when it comes to art. Some of the weirder--yet more satisfying--visual experiences you'll ever have can be found in this city. Just visit the Pittsburgh Glass Center, home to glassworks of all kinds, or take a walk through downtown and spot the public art. The Frick Art Museum, dedicated to the art collection of a single family, as well as their carriages and cars throughout several generations is a quirky place to get a hold on Pittsburgh history, through art.
Finally, though it can seem as cutting-edge as New York, Pittsburgh is also a family town, with plenty for children and adults to do. Sports fans soon take a shine to local heroes, the Pittsburgh Steelers, even if they came in rooting for the other guy. It's hard to resist the NFL team's charisma and the cheers of its diehard fans. On a quiet Saturday afternoon, you can always take little ones to Kennywood Park, a classic amusement park, or the highly-rated Pittsburgh zoo.
