Why Choose Our Destination?

Pittsburgh: Best of the World If you want to experience one of the best places in the world, then you’ll want to visit Pittsburgh. YES, Pittsburgh! The City of Bridges was named one of the 20 great places in the world to experience by National Geographic Traveler. The magazine states: “Three rivers. One reinvented city. On all counts, the Steel City’s transformation over the past quarter century qualifies as revolutionary.” Consider the stunning David L. Lawrence Convention Center – one of the city’s hallmark green buildings and the only convention center in the country to receive both Gold and Platinum LEED certification – and you’ll see why Pittsburgh today is a must-see destination for meetings and conventions. Downtown hotels – with more than 2,500 committable rooms – are all within walking distance of the convention center. Downtown Pittsburgh is also home to an outstanding collection of food offerings – from fine dining to coffee shops. You’ll find more than 100 eateries within a 10 to 20 minute walk of the center. With its breathtaking skyline, sparkling rivers and magnificent architecture, Pittsburgh is clean, green and ripe for discovery.
