Pittsburgh is a gritty city built on metal, steel, and the labor of a hardworking, do-it-yourself middle class. However, it’d be unfair to write it off as a dull city of concrete and dimly-lit dive bars. Pittsburgh is home to a surprising arts scene, a fiercely devout sports culture, pretty riverfronts and a thriving business industry. It’s not too overwhelming, and much of the city is accessible by foot, bike, or the modern public transportation system. While the people here may seem a bit cold, they warm up just fine after a pint or two.
Despite the fact that residents of Pittsburgh tend to panic when people come to visit, there are actually tons of really fun things to do. You can’t go wrong with a sports game -- depending on what’s in season, the Penguins, Pirates and Steelers all have avid fan bases. Check out the Andy Warhol Museum, Point State Park (or “the point” as it’s known colloquially) for great views of the city, the Duquesne Incline, and Church Brew Works -- an old defunkt church that was repurposed and turned into a fun brewery. People in Pittsburgh don’t take their sandwiches lightly, and Primanti Bros is a historic joint for dinner or a night out. For all you gluten-sensitive folks, check out Arsenal Cider House, and Market Square for the ultimate downtown experience.
Summer! Even though they're known to have some heavy rainfall, visiting during the months of May and September is your best bet.
