Finding the One Perfect Word to Describe Pittsburgh

Choosing the right “Pittsburgh word” could earn you a sweet staycation package.





 

You’ve probably seen the VisitPittsburgh promotions that end with words “Pittsburgh. Mighty. Beautiful,” and another word such as “Welcoming,” “Inspiring” or “Proud.”

As part of a new campaign, the tourism organization wants you to come up with that third perfect Pittsburgh word. This video is designed to give you inspiration.
