PROGRESS RUNS PITTSBURGH
Pittsburgh was once known as the industrial powerhouse of America but in the 1980’s, when the steel industry collapsed, workers left town in flocks. Thanks to the foresight of the city and local institutions, such as Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh’s population is now growing larger and younger. Facebook, Uber, Amazon and Google all have offices in Pittsburgh, as well as 1,600 other tech companies.
CULTURE RUNS PITTSBURGH:
Pittsburgh will keep you entertained long after the finish line. Pittsburgh’s downtown Cultural District is home to hundreds of retail shops and restaurants as well as seven world-class theaters. There are museums, music, dance, art, theater, opera, ballet, film and more, walkable from Downtown.
