Visiting Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Only City With An Entrance

Pittsburgh SkylineWhen you visit Pittsburgh, you'll probably approach from the airport and wind your way down wooded embankments into a tunnel … where you'll emerge and be amazed to find a city skyline that feels it's been placed in your lap.

The New Yorker once declared that the three most beautiful cities in the world were Paris, St. Petersburg and Pittsburgh:

"If Pittsburgh were situated somewhere in the heart of Europe, tourists would eagerly journey hundreds of miles out of their way to visit it."

Accessible rivers and lush mountains are the backdrop for museums, ballet, symphonies and galleries. World-class dining is minutes from coffee houses, farmers markets and ethnic eateries.

You're about to find out why Pittsburgh is a top-ranked city for everything from scenery and sports to innovation and international flair.

We're glad to have you join us for our inauguration events, and we encourage you to come early or stay late to enjoy all that Pittsburgh has to offer.

Here's how to get here and where to stay:
