I love my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA — wonderfully friendly people, delicious restaurants, great sports teams, loads of bike trails and paths, glorious hills, a variety of interesting architecture, world-class museums, four distinct seasons. You can find loads to do by Googling your interests, but I’ve listed below some standard Pittsburgh stops as well as a few offbeat attractions for the adventurous.

"I was charmed by this small city of old industry. Settled between high green hills where rivers converge, Pittsburgh is a beautiful mishmash of glass and metal towers, terraced townhouses, and converted red brick warehouses with painted murals. There is more than enough here to entertain yourself aside the playing of games. The people here are warm and welcoming. And if you fancy, take a bite from the Steel City's famous sandwich filled with French Fries. What a strange thing to eat."
"So many bridges, steep hills everywhere! And good atmosphere in suburb area. Unique to visit!"
"Pittsburgh can offer visitors a great opportunity to experience great art from our museums, local art scene, 1st Friday’s on Penn Ave., and our theatres! There is always a good show you can find right here in the Steel City."
