City Guide

While many cities are defined by their topography and skylines, Pittsburgh is distinguished by its vibrant neighborhoods (and its skyline!). Pittsburgh's strength and grit, diversity and vitality are rooted in our neighborhoods. Although each has its own personality and distinct appeal, Pittsburghers-natives, transplants and boomerangs-make our city the best place to live in the country.

Here's a guide to 12 top neighborhoods in and around the city. Each has great curb appeal (shops and restaurants). Plus, we asked our friends and bargain experts at livingpittsburgh.com (a one-stop source for all things free and affordable in the city) to show you how you can do each neighborhood on the cheap! And don't think we forgot about the suburbs. Be sure to check out the six amazing 'Burgh Burbs below for a more tranquil, scenic take on Pittsburgh.
