Pittsburgh: Growing Far Beyond Steel City

While Pittsburgh is known primarily as the "Steel City" due to its heavily industrial past, it has grown to be a varied city with many attractions and offerings. Baseball fans shouldn't miss the chance to see a game at PNC Park, one of the nicest of all pro baseball stadiums. The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium offers a full day of fun for a single admission price. The zoo has high tech displays that allow you to get very close to the animals while being completely safe. The aquarium has a nice variety of sea mammals, including a group of friendly and inquisitive penguins who seem to love crowd interaction."
