Pittsburgh – One of the Best Places to Visit … In the World!

I was intrigued an article on Monday  on the National Geographic website discussing the Top Travel Destinations in the world.

To my pleasure and surprise, Pittsburgh was one of the few cities to make the list! Traveler Magazine listed its, “Best of the World,” ranking the top places to visit and suggesting the best spots for travel in 2012.

Pittsburgh was the first city to pop up on the list. Here is what they had to say:

“ Pittsburgh

Extreme Metropolitan Makeover

Three rivers. One reinvented city. On all counts, the Steel City’s transformation over the past quarter century qualifies as revolutionary. Its mourning for its industrial past long concluded, this western Pennsylvania city changed jobs and reclaimed its major assets: a natural setting that rivals Lisbon and San Francisco, a wealth of fine art and architecture, and a quirky sense of humor.

Pittsburgh’s century-wide swath of architectural styles persuaded British film director Christopher Nolan to use downtown as a stand-in for Gotham City in this summer’s Dark Knight Rises. Sustainable design has transformed Victorian landmarks like the glass-domed Phipps Conservatory and created contemporary ones like the swooping waterfront convention center.” (via National Geographic & Traveler Magazine)

Now, not only is Pittsburgh ranked one of the best places to live, but it’s now also ranked one of the best places in the world to visit, among its many other accolades!

Way to go, Pittsburgh! I’m glad to see that the rest of the world is beginning to recognize the ‘Burgh for all it has to offer.
