#34. Pittsburgh, PA

A city with two nicknames, Pittsburgh has more than 300 steel-related businesses that account for its “Steel City” label, and 446 bridges give Pittsburgh its “City of Bridges” moniker — but this evolving city encompasses much more than metal.

Known largely by sports fans for its six-time champion Pittsburgh Steelers NFL team, the city houses nearly 30 colleges and universities along with a burgeoning craft beer industry that now features 15 breweries. An impressive 90 individual neighborhoods make up Pittsburgh, and unique attractions include an Andy Warhol Museum, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and a light rail subway system. 

Thanks to affordable home prices and great job prospects (especially in STEM fields), the city has seen an influx of younger residents, which keeps the city feeling fun and youthful.
