I love Pittsburgh!

We went to Pittsburgh yesterday and Corey's BFFF, James, gave us his hometown tour. I guess I always thought Pittsburgh would be nasty but it was beautiful! So many trees and rivers and awesome bridges. We went to the Pirates game. They of course lost but the field is amazing and we got in for 7 bucks. It was also National Talk like a Pirate Day so we had a great time. We went to the famous Primanti Brothers Restaurant and got sandwiches. They were pretty good. They're famous 'cause they put coleslaw and the fries in the sandwich... ok, it was good. Not that freakin' ingenious if you ask me but my pastrami cheese was nice.
We rode an incline which is a trolly looking car that goes straight up the side of a mountain on a track. There's a couple different ones in Pittsburgh. They're quite frightening but pretty cool. If that cable gave out you would go plummeting at 100mph to your death. Luckily, no one was harmed.
Driving out of the city at night was the best part! All the bridges were lit up and it was gorgeous! Overall I give Pittsburgh a 9. It was full of beautiful buildings, cool bridges, lots of stuff to do in the city or on the rivers. I would go back any day and I will when we get tickets to see the Steelers play the Packers :)

Ok so I love Pittsburgh, too! Very underrated if you ask me. The first time I went I think I was expecting it to look like Detroit but it is so pretty, more like a European city. Glad you had a good time. We love PNC Park.
