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. 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. 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.” (Adapted from www.visitpittsburgh.com)
