Pittsburgh, PA: What you need to know

Pittsburgh may be known as the Steel City for its 300-plus steel-related companies and its six-time championship winning NFL team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, yet when it comes to arts, education and lifestyle amenities, the city is far from the rigidity such a name may imply. With more than 60 colleges and universities, including research and development leaders Carnegie-Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, the city also earns praise for its smart population.
