Why should Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania be on your list for your next visit to the USA? After all, it’s not New York, Los Angeles, or San Francisco. And therein lies the reason. Pittsburgh is simply a unique American experience that you cannot get anywhere else.
In the past, Pittsburgh was known as, “the Gateway to the West,” because it’s three rivers the Allegheny, the Monongahela, and the Ohio, provided the perfect starting point for settlers who were voyaging to the undiscovered western United States.
In the late 1800s and mid 1900s the city’s three rivers allowed for the transfer of raw materials that were then turned into steel that literally helped to build the USA.
And today, in the 21st century the city’s rivers are a major tourist attraction and an all- around beautiful photo spot. Here visitors can walk along either the Allegheny or the Monongahela and be transported back in time, as Pittsburgh is a city that not only remembers, but celebrates its past.
Allow the city will serve you, as your gateway to discovering the USA. If you are coming to the USA because you want to learn about the United State’s industrious past, look no further. If you want to experience fine dining, charming markets, national sports teams, theater or fine arts, look no further.
Or, if you simply want to enjoy the nature that will envelope you all throughout the city look no further than Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
