Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is my hometown. What would one's blog be without tips for what to do, see, and eat in their own stomping grounds?
Pittsburgh is in the Southwest corner of PA. It's not far from the West Virginia and Ohio borders. Known as the Steel City and the City of Bridges, Pittsburgh's life blood lies is the three rivers which meet at the city's center. Regardless of which direction you're flying in from you're sure to spot a river.
It's important to mention that Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's two large cities, are nearly 300 miles apart from one another. While within the same state, the cities are seemingly worlds apart. Each has it's own sports teams, vernacular, and favorite sandwiches: Philly's Cheesesteaks vs Pittsburgh's Primanti's Brothers Sandwiches which include French fries and Cole slaw inside the slices of bread.
Pittsburgh here we come! Tonight my husband and I will take two flights to get us across the country to my hometown for a week long visit. It's been almost a year and a half since I've been back home and this summertime trip is long overdue.
Bagheera, our cat, is less than thrilled to be left behind in Seattle but is always excited to see a bag to jump into. Hopefully I can continue my ongoing trend of carry on bags only later today!
