he “boomerang effect” is one way to explain why Pittsburgh is a top-rated city to live, work and visit. Whether born and raised, attended college here or visited once or twice, many return to the ‘Burgh. Gone are the days when Pittsburgh was known for its dark and gloomy facade from the Steel Mills. After experiencing its own renaissance, Pittsburgh is nationally ranked for its museums, sports, colleges and tourist attractions. Recent honors and accolades include: ⊲T he Discover Blog named The Andy Warhol Museum one of the top-10 coolest museums in the nation. ⊲G olf Digest ranked Oakmont Country Club the fifth-best golf course in America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses list. ⊲E squire named Con Alma one of the best bars in America. ⊲F odor’s Travel declared Pittsburgh one of the Best Craft Beer Cities in the U.S.
Pittsburgh was not immune to the COVID-19 global pandemic, but over the last two years, the small business community has remained resilient. In 2021, the city saw a surge of new businesses open including restaurants, cafes and breweries. As travel picks up in 2022, here are just a few reasons to consider Pittsburgh for a week-long vacation or weekend trip.

How to Get Here Located in the southwest region of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is two-and-a-half hours from Cleveland, four hours from Washington, D.C., and seven hours from New York City, making it an easy road trip in the Mid-Atlantic region. For those who prefer to fly, Pittsburgh International Airport is ranked one of the best and greenest in the nation. In 2021, the airport became the first in the world to be completely powered by natural gas and solar energy as part of its live microgrid. How to Get Around No access to a vehicle? No problem. Pittsburgh is one of America’s most walkable cities with many walking tours available, including the Haunted Pittsburgh Ghost Tour and a Whiskey Walking Tour offered by Walk the Burgh Tours. Prefer two wheels? People for Bikes ranked Pittsburgh among the top-20 cities in the U.S. for bicyclists.
As an Uber test site, Pittsburgh has plenty of ride share options available, as well as electric scooters, bike shares and Segway tours. For other popular transportation methods, take a scenic ride on Pittsburgh’s 145-year old funiculars – the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines - or, enjoy a view of Pittsburgh from the water aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet or Cruisin’ Tiki Pittsburgh. Where to Stay The best part of visiting a smaller metropolitan is having a plethora of affordable options to stay. While many might be drawn to Downtown, Pittsburgh is made up of 90 neighborhoods, giving visitors 90 personalities to choose from when it comes time to eat, shop and stay. From luxury hotels to comfy bed and breakfasts, Pittsburgh has no shortage of hospitable options. Lawrenceville, Strip District, Shadyside, North Shore and the Northside are usually top destinations. Where to “Wine and Dine” From Pittsburgh’s most popular attractions to hidden gems around the city, the region’s culinary offerings are wide and varied, offering visitors plenty of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some classic Pittsburgh favorites are: ⊲ Monterey Bay Fish Grotto, Altius or Vue 412 for the best views of Pittsburgh from Mount Washington. ⊲ Caliente Pizza & Draft House for literally the “Best Pizza in America” – no, seriously, “The Mee-Maw” was named the Best Pizza in America in 2019! Plus, they boast a wide selection of craft beers. ⊲ Acacia Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh’s very own speakeasy in the South Side with the best cocktails. What’s New in 2022 There’s always something new happening in the ‘Burgh. In 2022, Pittsburgh is eager to welcome Moonshot Museum, Bombs Away, a free-fall slide at Sandcastle Water Park, and The Landing Hotel at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. For those who haven’t visited in a few years or perhaps visited long ago, consider “boomeranging” back to Pittsburgh. With its big-city attractions and small-town charm, there are plenty of adventures waiting for you!
Monongahela Incline | Dave DiCello
With 90 charming and unique neighborhoods, Pittsburgh offers a variety of choices to shop, dine, hang out and explore.
⊲ While born in Bogota, Colombia, Robin Rectenwald is a true Pittsburgher. Like many others, she briefly left the city to attend college and boomeranged back two years later to finish her undergraduate degree at Duquesne University. As a public relations professional, Robin regularly follows local media outlets and blogs to stay up to date on the latest events and new restaurant openings. Robin loves to travel, but she also likes to keep busy when home, which is why Pittsburgh is the perfect place for her to live, work and play.

ittsburgh is a great city to visit, but especially for senior travelers exploring without children. It’s a very drivable city if you have a car. Or, you can easily order an Uber or Lyft if you arrived by Amtrak. Best of all, parking is plentiful around your favorite spots.
If you love art and museums, this is your town. The Andy Warhol Museum on the North Shore reflects the Pittsburghborn artist’s life with an eccentric artistic touch. Make sure you catch a glimpse of one of his most famous pieces, Campbell’s Soup Cans. You also can view many of his personal items, including a collection of wigs. Head across town to The Frick Pittsburgh in Point Breeze to enjoy a legacy of art, history and nature. The Car and Carriage Museum, included in The Frick’s free admission,
is a ride through history. Plan accordingly so you can take your time and enjoy a leisurely stroll through the mansion, the museum and garden areas. Up for more walking? Make sure you include a visit to the Strip District where you’ll find a variety of shopping, including lots of black and gold merchandise, eclectic food and restaurant offerings and gift shops. Be on the lookout for The Strip Mural by artists Carley Parris and Shannon Pultz – it’s easily viewed on Penn Ave. For those wishing to savor all the flavors of the Strip District – or a handful of other Pittsburgh neighborhoods – consider booking a walking food tour with ‘Burgh Bits & Bites.

Sports fans are in luck in Pittsburgh! The city is home to several professional teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Penguins, and the locals are fanatical for their favorite sports teams. You can find a large area devoted to the teams at the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, located inside the Senator John Heinz History Museum. The Heinz History Museum pays tribute to more than the local sports teams. Here, you can learn so much about one of Pittsburgh’s most famous citizens, Mister Rogers, a national treasure. Find his monogrammed house slippers and one of his beloved red cardigans. The museum also is full of American history following the democracy of the country. When your legs need a respite from walking, rest assured there are several more relaxing ways to see the city. Book a tour on Molly’s Trolleys Pittsburgh. Not only will you visit several neighborhoods and see many of the city’s popular sites, but thanks to the fantastic tour guides, you also will learn a bit of regional history. One such nugget learned on a recent trip - ketchup wasn’t the first Heinz product produced; bottled horseradish was! Ride the Duquesne Incline up to the Mount Washington neighborhood for a spectacular view of the city. A quick ride back down will drop you off in the South Side neighborhood. Pittsburgh is widely known for its three rivers. Tour the city by water aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet. Sit back and relax on the Three Rivers Sightseeing Cruise, which allows visitors a close view of the Downtown skyline and several of the city’s 446 bridges. And, the sunset cruises are a great option for a romantic night out. Speaking of those bridges, many of them are easily walkable, connecting Downtown to several of Pittsburgh’s 90 unique neighborhoods. In fact, the Sixth Street Bridge, commonly known as the Clemente Bridge, directly takes you from Downtown to PNC Park, home of the Pirates. As on any visit, especially your first time, the food choices in Pittsburgh can’t be beat. From the iconic Primanti Bros. sandwich to ethnic specialty foods, many from the Eastern European immigrants who settled in Pittsburgh, options are aplenty in Pittsburgh. Consider extending your Pittsburgh visit with a daytrip to the Laurel Highlands, where you can visit two of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most iconic homes, Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob.

Out of the Most Pittsburgh’s Vibrant
⊲ By Mike Tysarczyk
t wasn’t all that long ago when Pittsburgh was home to more Super Bowl trophies than craft breweries. Much has changed over the last 15 years, though. Now, more than 40 breweries dot Allegheny County’s unique landscape, churning out lots of great beer from a wide variety of visitworthy locations.
The array of options will serve those who want to schedule a beer-focused vacation, pair up a brewery visit with a concert, game or show, or stop for a quick pint before heading home from a business trip.
To help navigate the dozens of breweries embedded within Pittsburgh’s distinctive terrain of hills and valleys dissected by three rivers, visitors can check out pittsburghbreweries.com. This website - a product of the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild - features helpful information on almost all Allegheny County breweries. You can find out which ones are bike friendly, kid friendly or dog friendly, and search for those that have food trucks or live music. It’s all there.

The site also lays out seven premade trails that will help make your beer ventures as easy and efficient as possible. The North Shore Trail, for example, lays out a track for a half dozen breweries - many within walking distance of each other - across a few tight-knit Northside neighborhoods. Just up the road, The Allegheny River Trail includes six breweries that sit within six miles of each other in communities on or near the north bank of the river just upstream from Downtown Pittsburgh. Cross the Allegheny River again and pick up The City Trail, which features seven breweries that will take you through the Strip District, Lawrenceville, Bloomfield and Garfield, neighborhoods with plenty of food, fashion and flair. The East Pittsburgh Trail combines a few breweries within the east end of the city’s limits and four others located in the nearby Verona, Blawnox and Springdale municipalities. Venture just south of the city and connect with the South Hills and Mon River trails, which offer a combined 10 breweries to visit. Staying near the airport or west of the city? The Ohio River Trail provides a unique route of breweries to explore. Two breweries line the north bank of the Ohio River, while three others are positioned along or nearby the south bank. Rather do your own thing? No problem. Use the site to create a self-made trail of Pittsburgh breweries and pull up the easiest route from one stop to the next.
Something Old, Something New
Though each of Allegheny County’s breweries continues to evolve and bring new beers and vibrancy to the city, keep an eye out for some brewery news of note in 2022.
to the sounds of passing trains and river barges. Nearby, Grist House Craft Brewery is well on its way to opening another taproom at its original Millvale location, which is already widely known as a great outdoor hang. Verona's Inner Groove Brewing plans to open a taproom in Allentown, a community not too far from Mount Washington’s panoramic views. A new entrant - Golden Age Beer Co. opened its lager-focused brewery in late 2021. Head to historic Homestead for those offerings. Looking for some award-winning beers in the ‘Burgh? Auroch’s Brewing Co. in Emsworth, home to some of the country’s best gluten free beers, earned a gold medal at the 2020 Great American Beer Festival for its Hazy IPA (Gluten-Free Beer category). Cinderlands Beer Co. is another award winner, earning the gold medal for Brett beers at the 2021 Great American Beer Fest. The brewery now has three locations in and around the city. Insurrection Aleworks in Heidelberg has a newly expanded brewhouse and an excellent menu of made-from-scratch sandwiches, charcuterie and pizza. Finally, what’s old is new again in Pittsburgh in 2022. Pittsburgh Brewing Co., the maker of Iron City, the region’s most famed lager, plans to open a sparkling new brewery along the Allegheny River in East Deer Township this year. Pittsburghers look forward to welcoming Pittsburgh Brewing back home (after a decade of contract brewing) where it will join more than 40 other breweries intent on making Pittsburgh the place to visit for beer.

Gems ⊲ By Aadam Soorma
hen I think about folks visiting Pittsburgh, my mind wanders toward experiences with some really unique takeaways.
Maybe these visitors have already ridden the Duquesne Incline. Perhaps they’ve already stood at Point State Park and taken a stroll through the Carnegie Museums. Maybe they ate a Primanti Bros. sandwich and even paired it with an Iron City Lager. Heck, maybe they’ve even had their picture taken at Randyland. As we peel back the layers of Pittsburgh, we reveal shrouded corners of our neighborhoods; we stumble upon hidden gems that shine like diamonds in the rough. Although this is by no means a comprehensive list, I took a stab at traversing our unconventional terroir to showcase some of my favorite Pittsburgh Hidden Gems. Enjoy. Food ⊲ Grandma B’s, Hill District Grandma B’s is a no-nonsense, straightforward breakfast diner in the heart of the Hill District - a Black-owned business in a Black neighborhood with an incredible vibe. Be sure to ask for Dorian (the owner) and let him share a story or two about his cafe. ⊲ The Thyme Machine, Bloomfield If you’re a fan of breakfast sandwiches, head to The Thyme Machine food cart. This seasonal pop-up is parked in front of Bitter Ends Food (8 a.m. - noon) every Wednesday thru Friday on Liberty Ave. ⊲ Casa Brasil, Highland Park For folks new to Brazilian cuisine, Casa Brasil is an exceptional place to start your gastronomic adventures. Beneath the low-key, intimate dining room is a beautiful event space. ⊲ Fet-Fisk Royal Market, Shaler What started as a Nordic-themed dinner pop-up series (announced sporadically via Instagram) has blossomed into a full-blown market located in Shaler. Expect delicious smoked and pickled fish, sausages, charcuterie and other Swedish, sea fare-forward offerings.

⊲ By Ashley Johnson
istorically, Pittsburgh has always contributed to the fostering of Black cultural excellence. From being the inspiration for the works of August Wilson and the home of the National Opera House, the first prominent African American opera company in the country, to hosting well-known entertainment that included Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and so many more at the Granada Theater and Crawford Grill. Plus, one cannot forget Pittsburgh’s beloved Negro League teams, the Homestead Grays and the Pittsburgh Crawfords.
Today, that tradition continues through the city’s many cultural gems. For visitors looking to immerse themselves in Pittsburgh’s Black travel experience, here are just a few of the many sites that the city has to offer.

August Wilson African American Cultural Center
To many in the Black community, art, no matter the form, has always been a way for individuals to express themselves, inspire others, stimulate thoughts and emotions and confront social issues. Simply put, art is a window to a person’s soul. Visitors looking to get their “art on” must put BLAQK House Collections, located Downtown, and MOKA Art Gallery & House of Culture, only minutes away, in the Hill District, at the top of their lists. These galleries exhibit art of all kinds - paintings, sculpture, carvings and more - from local artists. Additionally, those looking to take in a visual art show through a live performance must visit the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. The experience, whether it’s through dance, song, spoken word, etc., mixed with the beautiful architecture of the façade, is sure to be an exhilarating one. While the Crawford Grill, known as the epicenter of Jazz music in Pittsburgh, is no longer around, Con Alma, located in Shadyside and Downtown, along with MCG Jazz in Manchester, offer toe-tapping experiences for Jazz-enthusiasts. For sports fans looking to experience everything that is ‘The Great One,’ the late Roberto Clemente, a right fielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates who made an impact on and off the field, a trip to Lawrenceville’s The Clemente Museum for a guided tour is a must. From the displays of thousands of Clemente memorabilia to the captivating stories of Clemente and how the collection was acquired, this one-of-a-kind experience will leave visitors in awe. Plus, the building’s many fascinating connections to Clemente will give visitors chills. For instance, the building - which currently houses the museum, a photography studio and Engine House 25 Wines - was once a fire station. According to the museum’s curator and executive director, the story is that the firefighters marched out

of the dilapidated firehouse (so that they could start 1973 in their new location) on the evening of Dec. 31, 1972, around the same time that Clemente’s plane had crashed. While some express themselves through art, dance or song, some do so by cooking. Food has always been a part of Black culture - whether in the church, after a service or program, or at home as part of a celebration. When it comes to good food, Pittsburgh has no shortage of top-notch eateries. Plus, taking in all that the city has to offer is sure to make any visitor hungry. No trip to Pittsburgh is complete without visiting some of Pittsburgh’s best “soulful” restaurants and bakeries for mouthwatering treats. There’s Carmi Soul Food, in the South Side, for shrimp and grits, catfish or smothered chicken; Wings & A Prayer Soul Food Restaurant, in Shadyside, for prayer wings, gospel dogs, Jonah’s fresh fish and sanctified sides; Munhall’s Hilda’s Soul Food Kitchen for smothered pork chops, meatloaf or ribs; and Ms. Jean’s Southern Cuisine, in Wilkinsburg, just to name a few. And one must leave room for a visit to CobblerWorld, Downtown, for pineapple upsidedown cake, peach cobbler, sweet potato pie and so much more; it’s definitely a treat for the eyes and stomach. Lastly, if visitors are looking for hotels not too far from all this action, the Hotel Indigo East Liberty, with its elegant décor and unique themes, which varies from room-to-room, is a great choice. It’s minutes from all the action and a great space for guests to relax and rest while enjoying the city.

Pittsburgh will forever be known as the Steel City. Just as Pittsburgh was at the bleeding edge of tech in the 19th and 20th centuries producing steel, glass and energy, the city is still at it today. But much has changed. It is often referred to as a 40 year, overnight success story. In fact, the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s 2021 State of the Industry Report says the 10-county Pittsburgh region is home to more than 10,000 tech companies across six clusters, including information technology, life sciences, advanced manufacturing, advanced materials, environmental technology and energy technology. These firms employ 305,615 individuals and account for nearly 26 percent of the area’s overall workforce. The $26.5 billion annual payroll of technology and related companies, including the health services subcluster, represents more than 37 percent of the region’s total wages. Tech is not just defining Pittsburgh, it is leading it into the future. Millions of people and travelers have used Duolingo to learn a new language. This company was founded by Luis Von Ahn, inventor of ReCAPTHCHA and a Carnegie Mellon University alum/professor. Duolingo just went public and has headquarters in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood in the East End.
