    Pittsburgh has some serious panache

    Whether you're seeking gooey Philly cheese sandwiches or refined American cuisine, gritty industrial history or cutting-edge modern art, Pittsburgh has you covered. Sat where the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers drift slowly into one another, this town of Art Deco skyscrapers and cosmopolitan neighborhoods is one of the most intriguing in America. It's a place to kick back in leafy parks and to roar with the local baseball crowds and to shop for Italian pizza pies before seeing wonderworks by Andy Warhol. And it's got more enticing, super-cool Pittsburgh vacation rentals than you can shake a meatball panini at.

    There’s never a dull moment in Pittsburgh

    If you've been lucky enough to bag Pittsburgh vacation rentals in the downtown area, then you're likely to find yourself hopping between world-class art museums and wondering up at imposing Art Deco skyscrapers. If you're based in the bustling Strip District, then you can taste ethnic foods and shop in authentic Italian delicatessens. If you're on the South Side, panoramic lookouts and skyline photography sessions beckon, not to mention walking tours and sightseeing bus routes. And that's just 3 of the great neighborhoods here…

    Pittsburgh's skyline hides plenty

    You'll immediately spot the hulking outlines of buildings like the U.S. Steel Tower and the shimmering PPG Place with its Medieval-like turrets – these are the landmarks that draw the eye in Steel City. Delve into the blocks that hug those megastructures, and that's where the world-class Carnegie Museum awaits, fusing groundbreaking science exhibits with famous art works by American greats. Other awesome attractions include the lookout points on Mount Washington and the PPG Zoo & Aquarium, where 4,000 exotic animals await.
