City overview

Visitors to Pittsburgh will be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have steel roots. Generations of locals (those born in the city and those who made it their home) powered the steel mills that have given Pittsburgh its nickname of “The Steel City”. Today, most of the steeled-milled skyline has been replaced with contemporary art museums and sculptures, sparkling glass buildings and green spaces.

Due to its location along the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, Pittsburgh is one of the most water-filled cities in America. Outdoors enthusiasts booking a flight to Pittsburgh will enjoy hiking in the Allegheny Mountains, while city-goers will revel in the city’s famed shopping district. If you’re in the mood for a little adrenaline rush, head to Pittsburgh’s amusement park where you’ll find one of the fastest track roller-coasters in the United States.

Movie lovers can take a road trip to Philadelphia, 300 miles (482 km) away and run up the stairs of the Capitol building – just like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky.
