If there is something that I can not hide is that Pittsburgh got my heart (and I genuinely think that the city can get yours too). So, I moved to the area in 2021, right by the time the pandemic was about to slow down, and I have to be honest, I had never heard about this city in western Pennsylvania, in the United States. Pittsburgh has a rich history, a diverse culture, and a thriving economy, and it has high-growth sectors in advanced manufacturing, autonomy and AI, life sciences, and energy. So here we go, a list of five reasons to fall into this great place:
If you are someone interested in history, you can put Pittsburgh as a place to go at the top of your list. The city has a long and fascinating history, from its early days as a frontier fort to its rise as an industrial powerhouse in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many historic buildings and landmarks can still be found throughout the city, including the Carnegie Museums and Library, the Heinz History Center, and the Fort Pitt Blockhouse. Walking downtown is a fantastic experience, and I can not deny the yellow bridges got a special place in my heart.
Second: Pittsburgh is known for its vibrant arts and cultural scene, with numerous museums, galleries, and theaters. The city is also home to various festivals and events throughout the year, such as the Three Rivers Arts Festival, the Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival, and the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. It's just amazing how you can live in the city in a live way, where everything works together.
As a fan of sports, the city fits perfectly into my lifestyle! Pittsburgh is a city that loves sports, and it is home to several professional sports teams, including the Steelers (football), the Penguins (hockey), the Pirates (baseball), and the Riverhounds (soccer).
Last but not least, I have to say, what a natural beauty! Pittsburgh is located at the confluence of three rivers, providing ample outdoor recreation opportunities, such as hiking, biking, and kayaking. The city is also surrounded by rolling hills and lush forests, which make for stunning scenery. I have to be honest. It’s difficult to pick between spring and fall around here.
Overall, Pittsburgh is a city that has a lot to offer, from its rich history and culture to its thriving economy and natural beauty.
