Naturally BeautifulBiking North Shore Trail

In the eyes of many of its visitors, Pittsburgh offers a surprising and unexpected experience, with natural beauty, unique terrain, and diverse offerings at every turn. Take in the fantastic views of Mount Washington, the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers from Point State Park, and the many trees awash in fall colors in September. It's easy to enjoy the city by bike, foot or rollerblade on the miles of riverfront trails.  

Responsible and SustainableSkyline

Pittsburgh was one of the first to pass a clean air act in 1946, and never looked back. The David L. Lawrence Convention Center is the world's first convention center built Gold LEED® Certified and then upgraded to Platinum LEED® Certified. This reflects a commitment to environmental responsibility that is a hallmark of the region. You see green space throughout the city, with the largest considered as Pittsburgh's front yard, also known as Point State Park and home to the Fountain at the Point.
