Pittsburgh is Pennsylvania’s second largest city and located in the western portion of the state. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Pittsburgh was one of the industrial centers of the country, producing the majority of the country’s steel and glass.
Today, much of this industry has disappeared, but it has been replaced with futuristic industries, and many industrial sites have been turned into great tourist attractions and rail trails, meaning there are many great things to do in Pittsburgh and its suburbs.
The titans of industry that once lived in Pittsburgh have also left the city rich in museums and cultural attractions. In fact, Pittsburgh has more high-quality museums than most cities twice its size. It’s also one of the most photographable cities in the world.
Outside of Pittsburgh, the region is filled with many great small towns that are fun to explore.
There’s also a lot of beautiful scenery to be seen, with state parks like McConnells Mill State Park and Moraine State Park being some of my favorites in Pennsylvania. There are also many great waterfalls near Pittsburgh to explore.
Of course, you can also sit back and enjoy the many delicious restaurants and great breweries in Pittsburgh and the surrounding communities.
