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.
Take to the streets of Pittsburgh and explore this vibrant city. There are free, self-guided and guided architectural and public art walking tours of the city's many neighborhoods.
