Things to Do and Community Resources

"Pittsburgh has undergone a striking renaissance from a down-and-out smokestack to a gleaming cultural oasis. But old stereotypes die hard, and Pittsburgh probably doesn't make many people's short list for a cosmopolitan getaway. Too bad, because this city of 89 distinct neighborhoods is a cool and—dare I say, hip—city. There are great restaurants, excellent shopping, breakthrough galleries and prestigious museums. The convergence of three rivers and surrounding green hills also make it a surprisingly pretty urban setting." Click here to read the rest of the New York Times article "36 Hours in Pittsburgh" and find where to go and what to do while you are in Pittsburgh.

Food, sports, music, and the arts—you'll find all that in Pittsburgh, and more! With so much to do in Pittsburgh, here are a few Web links to get you started. For additional resources about relocating to Pittsburgh, click here.
