Known first as a trading post and 18th century French fortress, and then the British Fort Pitt, Pittsburgh emerged in the early 1800s as an industrial powerhouse due to steel and iron production. Today you are not likely to see any steel manufacturing, as the city has been transformed into a blend of modern skyscrapers and architectural masterpieces, and is recognized as one of the most enchanting cities in the nation. Pittsburgh flights provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the city's sense of fun, with fine dining in some of the award-winning locales of the state, unique shopping downtown and in suburbs, and diverse outdoor activities in its parks and on its rivers.
For getting around visitors are offered bus and trolley service operated daily, and the T - a subway running within the central business district. Some of the greatest attractions that are must-sees during your Pittsburgh flights include Allegheny County Courthouse and Jail, seen as one of the prominent Romanesque buildings in the country; Andy Warhol Museum, whose seven floors are dedicated to the work of pop art icon and native Pittsburgher; Carnegie, a huge cultural center and home to the Carnegie Library, the Music Hall, the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Art; Carnegie Science Center that features a four-storey Omnimax Theater, over 250 science exhibits, a World War II submarine and a planetarium; Cathedral of Learning, the Gothic skyscraper of the University of Pittsburgh.
Visitors are also welcome to Frick Art and Historical Center, featuring the Frick Art Museum, a car and carriage museum and preserving the original art and furnishings. One of the oldest amusement parks in the United States and a National Historic Landmark, Kennywood is located some ten miles southeast of downtown and contains several roller coasters and water rides.
