Pittsburgh Life

Pittsburgh encompasses almost 2,000 acres of land in just its city parks and offers county parks, state parks, and riverfront parks to its residents. The area is also attracting major corporations looking to set up shop. Transplants are surprised to find a hub of technology and education in
the area. A rise in job opportunities has made Pittsburgh an attractive place for families and graduates. Pittsburgh also offers a cheaper housing market compared to other large US cities. Its old, blue-collar reputation is being replaced and the quality of life continues to improve with new industries that make Pittsburgh home.
