Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The city that steel and railroad industries built has taken on a less gritty feel in recent years. Today’s Pittsburgh is clean and mod-looking with towering glass and steel skyscrapers laid out at the point (the Golden Triangle) where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers come together to form the Ohio. Before their industries collapsed, rich industry barons blessed the city with numerous architectural and other civic gifts like libraries and museums. These days, Steel City routinely ranks at the top of America’s most livable cities and is perhaps better known for producing ketchup and other condiments than steel. On weekends, head out to the Strip District (once the home of US Steel) for the farmers market. The South Side is home to many restaurants and bars. Drop by Primanti Brothers and tackle an enormous sandwich. Then work it off on the Southside Slopes, the neighborhood’s steep hills. Stair-climb to the top for sensational city views. Or if you’re too full to move, head over to the Monongahela Incline for a funicular rail ride up Mount Washington.
