If you consider yourself to be a crying little bitch,(like many of the above authors) stay on the west coast you yuppie piece of shit. Pittsburgh does not cater to you, and its residents will chew you up and spit you out. This city was founded by, and is full of, blue collar workers that will just as soon shake your hand as punch you in the face. Most people from other cities are jealous of the Steelers dominance and therefore make claims that the city is below average. However, although the people can be a little rough around the edges, they are no where near as offensive and rude as New Yorkers, or as air headed and stoned as Californians. The city itself is clean and always expanding. Pittsburgh will soon be hosting the MLB allstar game in the new PNC Park stadium. Pittsburgh sits on three beautiful rivers that were the home of last years BASS Masters tournament. The charm of Pittsburgh lies in its history,location, and diversity, not its trendy bars and nightlife. The city employs no gimmicks or outlandish claims to get people to visit, it is what it is, like it or not.
I stopped in Pittsburgh for a few days on business, and while I was there I told locals that their city was shitty. They soon sent their wives to beat my ass because i was such a baby that they felt bad doing it themselves. Afterwards i flew back to my home in Seattle sipping a 6 dollar latte, and got online to spread lies about Pittsburgh.

An unpretentious city that can be both stifling and inspiring, lively and deadly, hip and stuck in the past - a big village with it's own sort of Yinzer charm!

A vast, lively city that is never the same twice. It looks like your typical mild-mannered, politically correct city, but the area's residents know that it is far more. Truly uplifting people, amazing turnouts for sporting events, lots of beer, Pennsylvania's largest concentration of Gothic Lolitas, a wonderful indie music scene, and some great colleges.

Also, there is so much water. Three rivers meet at an area Pittsburghers have come to call The Point, and there's a cool fountain and picnic area there. Pittsburgh is also notorious for flooding.

Finally, Pittsburgh's weather is off-the-wall. It's May as I'm writing this, and we had snow two weeks ago, warm-ish rain last week, and this week we're expecting it to be cold. Still.
Going on vacation? Come to Pittsburgh. You may have to stay in Monroeville because there aren't any hotels in the city, but look on the bright side--it's only a twenty-minute ride from any of our suburbs to the city itself...!

One of America's great cities; a place with authentic neighborhoods, characterful people, interesting architecture, stunning vistas, a keen sense of history, and a uniqe ability to reinvent itself in a changing economy while maintaing the best of its past. Certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the country, it is without a peer in cities of similar size or, in many cases, much larger cities. A truly special place where people feel comfortable to relax, be who they really are, have good conversation, meet strange people, and generally enjoy a balanced way of life.
Pittsburgh is one of America's great cities.

A pretty place with coal and steel and rivers.
Pittsburgh was the coolest place to go when we were young and bored and single.
