Most Livable City

Nestled snugly among the scenic mountains and rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania lies one of
this country’s most unique, “Most Livable” cities. Many first-time visitors coming from Pittsburgh
International Airport are surprised and thrilled by the breathtaking skyline that suddenly appears
as they drive through the Fort Pitt Tunnels and are confronted with Pittsburgh’s spectacular Golden
Triangle.

For those unfamiliar with the modern Pittsburgh, that is the first of many surprises they experience as
they get to know Pittsburgh. Unlike the smoky, industrial city they expect, Pittsburgh today is a bright,
clean, modern city of skyscrapers and parks, bustling with business and technology, yet
warmed by friendliness. It is a city shaped by a solid economic foundation and a population
dedicated to the traditional values of honesty, courtesy, education and hard work... which combine to
make Pittsburgh an excellent place to raise a family.

Pittsburgh’s professional sports teams are well known — the Pittsburgh Steelers, the first team to
win six Super Bowls; the Pittsburgh Pirates, who captured the National League East Division Title in
1990 and 1991; and the Pittsburgh Penguins, three-time Stanley Cup Champions. Pittsburgh is also
the home of an internationally respected symphony orchestra, a major opera troupe, a professional
ballet company, one of the nation’s top university drama programs and more than
100 major theater productions each year.

For those who enjoy the active life, Pittsburgh offers a wealth of choices, with amateur softball,
basketball, volleyball and soccer leagues, literally hundreds of tennis courts, jogging and biking
trails and more than 50 golf courses. And with its rivers, forests, streams, and lakes, it is a haven for
fishing, boating and hunting enthusiasts. Pittsburgh also offers a full schedule of summer festivals,
events, regattas and even its own fleet of paddle wheelers.

Because of its rich history and diversity of neighborhoods, the Pittsburgh area offers a wide variety
of architectural and living styles. Constructed during the era when building meant pride in
craftsmanship, many older Pittsburgh homes feature generous rooms, hardwood floors, stately
architecture and ornate or stone fireplaces. Suburban communities offer a broad range of
contemporary designs and lifestyles. And while homes in the area traditionally hold there value,
Pittsburgh’s housing prices are well below the national average.

HEALTHCARE

For decades, Pittsburgh has been an internationally recognized center for medical research and education.
It is where the bronchoscope and electron microscope were invented... where the first synthetic insulin was produced
and Vitamin C was first isolated... and where Dr. Jonas Salk discovered the first polio vaccine.

With more than 50 hospitals throughout the region — including 11 teaching hospitals — Southwestern Pennsylvania’s
health care resources rival the best in the world. Pittsburgh’s Presbyterian-University Hospital performs more transplant
operations than any other hospital in the U.S.!

SPORTS

When it comes to sports, Pittsburgh is a “Big League” city in the finest sense of the term. Only a few years ago Pittsburgh
was recognized nationwide as the “City of Champions” for the world titles won by the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh
Pirates and the national ranking of the University of Pittsburgh Panthers football team, all in the same year. The Pittsburgh
Penguins added to the tradition by winning the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup three times. And for horse racing
enthusiasts, there’s both harness and thoroughbred racing nearby.
