Top Reasons to Live in Pittsburgh

  1. Pittsburgh is a city that bleeds black and gold, the colors of our three professional sports teams. But much as Pittsburghers love the Pengins (2009 Stanley Cup Champs!) and Pirates, the Steelers -- proud winners of six Super Bowls -- are more akin to a religion here.
  2. Pittsburgh has more bridges than just about any city in the world, including Venice, Italy, and more steps than Cincinnati and San Francisco combined!
  3. If you like your cities on the green side, then Pittsburgh is for you. The city's four regional parks offer thousands of acres of wooded escape from the city, while a multitude of rivers and streams, and a beautiful network of rail trails offer additional opportunities for recreation within the city limits.
