Way To Go Pittsburgh!
Posted by Kristian Buschmann on July 18, 2008
Having just been to Pittsburgh for our Spring National Conference, I was pleased to see this cover story in USA Today's Life section, which calls for a re-boot of people's perception of The Steel City. This once one-industry town seems to suffer from a lagging image of its past, but I'm guessing only for people who haven't been there. The article refers to a jokingly suggested tourism slogan of "Just Get Over It," and I couldn't agree more. Pittsburgh is way beyond having reinvented itself. With its variety of neighborhoods, architecture, art scene and fantastic natural backdrop, Pittsburgh is way out in front. The people are cool too - I was there during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and despite the fact that I'm a Detroit Red Wings fan, I was allowed to leave unharmed!blog comments powered by Disqus
