We realize that this is a statement that any city will lure tourists with. But Pittsburgh is unique in so many ways that there is really no way we can lie by saying that Pittsburgh very well may be the best city in the world.

The uniqueness of Pittsburgh starts with its location. With New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland just beside, you have to raise your game, don’t you? If you want tourists to notice you.
