Pittsburgh is truly a city for all to love! Known as the “Steel City”, Pittsburgh’s roots helped it grow to where it is today as an early 20th-century industrial capital. Visit the sites of the Gilded Age, including the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens to not only explore the history of this city, but it’s beautiful sites as well. Of course, those who love modern art have to check out the Andy Warhol Museum. Pittsburgh was Worhol’s birthplace and now home to thousands of different paintings, prints and more in the largest American museum dedicated to a single artist. However, if nature is more your thing, be sure to visit Point State Park for some of the best views of the city. Finally, Pittsburgh is home to many pro sports teams. Catch the Steelers at Heinz Field or the Pirates at PNC Park to cheer on your favorite teams to victory!
