City of Bridges
Known primarily for its steel-related heritage and 446 bridges, Pittsburgh sits at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, which meet to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh's main appeal lies in its unusual city design, which combines bridges, steep hills, and broad rivers to form one of the most naturally scenic urban areas in the country. Classic itineraries here usually include a tour of the most popular attractions, Mount Washington and both the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines. Named for the small strip of land a half-mile wide that it sits on, the Strip District downtown represents a revitalized area of the bygone manufacturing mecca, featuring produce stands, fresh meats, ethnic grocers, and sidewalk stands in the shadow of contemporary skyscrapers. The city is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, and it offers savvy visitors on vacation a chance to explore a hodge-podge of diverse neighborhoods, each with its own ethnic and architectural heritage. To discover the spirit of this true sports town, join the locals for a drink at one of many beer halls around the city. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Pittsburgh and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
