Pittsburgh tops list of ‘cool cities'

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh is cool ... but Yinzers already knew that.  Now thanks to the travel website Matador Network everyone else will, too.

The travel website lists the Steel City No. 1 on their list of the "20 cool cities you should check out before everyone else does.”

The website took a look at cities where travelers could take trips by Greyhound bus; from there they picked the top 20.


From walking along Carson Street to taking a trip to Point State Park, the website says Pittsburgh now “explodes with color” and has great places to eat, stay and play.

Others in the top 5 are Virginia Beach, Virginia; Greenville, South Carolina; Lafayette, Louisiana; and Sacramento, California.
