Pittsburgh Sights

Built where the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers meet to form the Ohio River, this city on seven hills is filled with the warmth of its residents, many of whom have roots here spanning generations. There is plenty of life on the streets of Pittsburgh, where former warehouses have been turned into restaurants and many street fairs are held in trendy neighborhoods like the South Side, Shadyside, and

the Strip. Rising above it all is the Duquesne Incline, a restored cable car that carries passengers up Mt. Washington for some fabulous views. And sports fans will especially enjoy the city's rich tradition of football, baseball, and hockey.

As for getting around, the Port Authority operates daily bus and trolley service. The T, the subway that runs within the central business district, is always free. Downtown bus service is free during the day.
