Downtown

The Heart of the City
Downtown Pittsburgh is one of the safest, cleanest, and most underrated city centers in the country. More and more millennials and families are beginning to call this area home since it's relatively inexpensive, beautiful, and there's always something to do. You can find folks enjoying the ample green spaces, walking or running on the riverfront trails, and experiencing the spectacular nightlife options.

Even though it's the city center, it's not as chaotic as you'd expect. The area kept a lot of its core values from when it used to be dominated by the coal mining industry, which means that the people here are still pretty blue-collar in nature. Downtown Pittsburgh has handled it's revitalization very well by welcoming the newcomers but still retaining its true identity.
