Pittsburgh is situated where the Monongahela and Alleghany merge to form the Ohio River. The first colonial settlement at this strategic location was an outpost established by George Washington when he surveyed the area in 1753. The French took possession of the community and built Fort Duquesne. The British ejected the French and renamed the location Fort Pitt. They later renamed the area Pittsburgh. During the 19th century, the city became synonymous with the production of steel. As the steel industry receded, the city launched an urban renewal program. It has transformed Pittsburgh into a city with a vibrant arts community and a new found flare.
Visitors to the city can tour the pop art exhibits of the Andy Warhol Museum, a lasting tribute to one of the city's most famous native sons. Cultural tourists will also enjoy the Frick Art and Historical Center, the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History and the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. The Rex Theater is a converted movie theater that is now a venue for jazz, rock and indie bands. Guests can attend live performances by the renowned Pittsburgh Symphony in the opulent Heinz Hall. There is also a children's museum, the Carnegie Science Center and the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium.
Visitors can enjoy hiking, biking and kayak tours around the city. There are miles of waterways and verdant parklands. You can ride the historic Duquesne Incline to the summit of Mount Washington for spectacular views of the three rivers and Point State Park. In Pittsburgh's ethnic neighborhoods, you will see various examples of Elizabethan and Victorian style homes. You will learn how Pittsburgh evolved from a frontier fort into a modern cosmopolitan city that still pays homage to its blue-collar roots.
