While I might not tell you to make Pittsburgh a destination trip, I will say that if you find yourself coming this way, plan ahead because there are many varied things to do in this small big city. If you leave Pittsburgh saying, what a dull place, then you haven’t taken the time to check out its many neighborhoods, fourteen-block theatre district with seven distinct venues, museums from the North Shore to Oakland, and so much more.
