Pittsburgh- One of the Best Places in the World to Visit in 2012!

National Geographic Traveler has named my city, Pittsburgh, as one of the top 20 places to visit in 2012! It is the only place in the United States (along with Sonoma, CA) that made the list. I actually think I'm going to make it to Sonoma next fall, so this is pretty cool.

National Geographic describes Pittsburgh...
Extreme Metropolitan Makeover
Three rivers. One reinvented city. On all counts, the Steel City’s transformation over the past quarter century qualifies as revolutionary. Its mourning for its industrial past long concluded, this western Pennsylvania city changed jobs and reclaimed its major assets: a natural setting that rivals Lisbon and San Francisco, a wealth of fine art and architecture, and a quirky sense of humor.
Pittsburgh’s century-wide swath of architectural styles persuaded British film director Christopher Nolan to use downtown as a stand-in for Gotham City in this summer’s Dark Knight Rises. Sustainable design has transformed Victorian landmarks like the glass-domed Phipps Conservatory and created contemporary ones like the swooping waterfront convention center.

So many people are surprised at how beautiful Pittsburgh is with its rolling hills and gorgeous skyline.  The people here are incredibly down to earth, friendly and real as they come. I love my hometown and I'm so proud to be from here! If you're ever in the area, send me an email. I'd love to have a beer with you!

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
