If you were to design a city from scratch, you might sketch something architecturally handsome, socially dynamic and culturally stimulating. It would have a vibrant downtown and be surrounded by rivers and hills….. this is Pittsburgh. It is the largest inland port in the US, providing access to the nation’s 9,000 mile inland waterway system. Boasting an eclectic mix of activities and interests to suit everyone, Pittsburgh is one of America’s best-kept secrets.
A steel town of old, Pittsburgh has played a major role in the American Industrial Age and was subsequently named the Iron City. Today, it is a true renaissance city, full of modern day facilities whilst readily retaining its ancestral charm. Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a Victorian glasshouse of flora and fauna located in Schenley Park, is always in bloom. No visit is complete without a visit to the Andy Warhol Museum, one of the very few museums dedicated to a single artist.
Enjoy a day at the riverfront entertainment complex of shops, nightclubs, and restaurants in restored railroad warehouses at Station Square. This is one of the best locations to enjoy some spectacular views of the city’s skyline and rivers.
