Pittsburgh has always been a legendary city for sports enthusiasts. We have championship pro teams, great outdoor spaces for biking and hiking, and three rivers for kayaking and more. But did you know that our metro area is also a major high-tech hub, home to 36 colleges and universities, and a nationally recognized #1 place to live?
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been playing baseball here since the late 1800’s. The NHL Pittsburgh Penguins have been scoring big for decades. So have the Pittsburgh Steelers, famous for The Steel Curtain® defensive line and the fan-favorite Terrible Towel. We love our college sports too, cheering on the University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne, Robert Morris, Penn State and others.
Evolving from steel to science, Pittsburgh has transformed itself into one of the best "made over towns" in America and has been declared the "#1 Most Livable City" on four separate occasions. With a family-friendly lifestyle and cost of living 40% lower than the national average, we’re also ranked the “#1 Best City for Jobs” (2017).
Pittsburgh is home to many diverse neighborhoods and districts, including The Southside, Market Square, Station Square, Strip District, and Cultural District. All of which offer unique opportunities for fun with family and friends. In fact, National Geographic listed us among their “Best Cities in the United States” based on metrics believed to lead to happiness, including: green spaces, galleries, coffee shops, breweries, music venues, "Instagrammable" moments, and more.
