Posted on September 16, 2016 by Julie Tulba in Travel
Compared to places like New York and Chicago, Pittsburgh is a fairly small city with a fraction of the number of tourist attractions and eateries. And if there’s one thing I’ve noticed since living here for the last decade, it’s that the same old venues and eateries always come up on the tourist “to do list” (Primanti sandwich, the Duquesne Incline).
