Located at the confluence of three sparkling rivers and banked on all sides by green hills, Pittsburgh has earned its reputation as one of America’s “most livable” cities. Having long been a centre for the production of steel, iron, glass, Pittsburgh’s economy is now driven by technology, medicine, finance and tourism. Pittsburgh was recently called one of the Top 10 destinations on the rise by TripAdvisor.

Home to several Fortune 500 companies, Pittsburgh offers big city amenities and boundless hospitality in an atmosphere that is small-town friendly. Travellers arriving by plane can enjoy the first-class service and impeccable facilities of the Pittsburgh International Airport.

The Pittsburgh International Airport is home to the Airmall®, a unique selection of shops, services and restaurants, all at guaranteed street-level pricing. Voted the best overall shopping and concession experience by World Airport Retail News, the Airmall offers everything from Nine West, Clinque, Godiva Chocolates, Victoria’s Secret and The Gap, to unique boutiques and Pittsburgh souvenirs.

Head downtown through the Fort Pitt Tunnel and you emerge to a spectacular view of three rivers (the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers join together to form the Ohio River) and a city skyline spiked with architectural masterpieces.

Hospitality abounds in Pittsburgh’s 90 diverse ethnic neighborhoods, offering visitors a sampling of food, culture, festivals and celebrations inspired and influenced by the city’s history and ethnic heritage.

One of America’s safest cities, Pittsburgh’s downtown restaurants, theaters and shops are easily accessed on foot or on the “T,” an underground rail system that is free within the city. Off shore, visitors can experience the city’s breathtaking skyline on board the Gateway Clipper Fleet.

Additional spectacular views can be had from one of the fine restaurants overlooking the city at the top of Mt. Washington. Or try dinner along the waterfront at Station Square, a restored 19th-century railroad station. Restaurants vary from upscale to casual, and there is a menu to suit every taste.

A wide variety of stores are located within easy walking distance of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center and downtown hotels, allowing plenty of opportunities for taking advantage of the fact that there is no sales tax on clothing, shoes or necessities in Pennsylvania. The Cultural District comes alive at night time, as it is home to 10 theatres within walking distance of hotels and the convention center.

Pittsburgh has undergone many technological advancements, such as Ubers self-driving cars. A year and a half ago, Uber set up an Advanced Technologies Center (ATC) in Pittsburgh. In September 2016, the company announced that the world’s first Self-Driving Ubers are now on the road in the City of Bridges.
