It is a smaller town but still a major city. It has a midwestern feel. People are very proud to be from Pittsburgh, but it is not very diverse, which can be problematic.

My favorite neighborhood is Shadyside. I love the skyline from Mount Washington.

It costs a lot of money to live in a decent neighborhood here - one that's easily accessible and has a low crime rate. There isn't much to do during your down time so it's hard to meet people.

If you're looking for entertainment after work, this isn't the place for you.

Pittsburgh has one of the worst school systems and recently has gained public attention for the racism in its policing. There is crime, generally most highlighted in certain, predominately poor and colored areas because Pittsburgh is one of the most segregated places I have visited. It is home to many college campuses and therefore college students, but is also considered a decent place (in terms of income) tor raise a family (if you happen to be middle class and white). There are many sporting events (Penguins, Steelers and Pirates) if that is what your interest is and many plays and a decent art scene.

The Andy Warhol museum is a great place to visit and all of The Carnegie Museums offer an interesting way to spend an afternoon. Many broadway shows can be seen in Downtown Pittsburgh and the scenery by the many rivers makes for a great morning or evening walk/run. However the segregation is real so any area you are told to avoid is probably predominantly black and the gentrification that started with Google locating a headquarters there is saddening.

I absolutely loved our trip to Pittsburgh! Its a beautiful area that seemed low on crime and had super friendly people. No matter where you went you were greeted with a warm smile and hello. The Grist house brewery is amazing and the "Just ducky" boat tour is something every water lover needs to experience!

The National Aviary is amazing-if you love birds it is a MUST! The Pittsburgh zoo was also VERY NICE! Great variety of animals and very knowledgeable staff! My son loved it~

I enjoy visiting Pittsburgh with my family often and each time we have gone there, we have the best time. Whenever we leave we can't wait to go back. There is a feeling of country living close to everything you need and want which is so convenient. It is the perfect vacation spot for us!

There are tons of family-oriented places to go like museums and parks. The people are friendly, there's a ton of stores, restaurants, and country living. The views are beautiful all year round! The only bad I can think of is there are some rougher neighborhoods in the city but all in all, I felt safe there.
