Product Description:
Pittsburgh City Guide 2018 is the new travel and city guide from Cardinal Content. Since 2012 we have covered this dynamic city and its environs that has become known world-wide for its monumental change from Industrial Age Giant to 21st Century Crossroads of Technology, Education, Health Sciences and the best of urban living. This new edition is built from our previous coverage of Pittsburgh, but what is different is what is different about Pittsburgh. In 2018. Pittsburgh has gone from a glimmer of hope in the midst of Industrial Age decay and neglect to a great city renowned for cutting edge technology; some of the planet’s best Universities and Colleges; life-saving research and practice in Health Care, and a burgeoning population of young people who are drawn to its many urban advantages. In other words, Pittsburgh is no long a likeable anomaly among Rust Belt cities, but is now considered among the essential cities to consider as Leaders of the 21st Century. Pittsburgh 2018 City Guide lays out all of the fundamentals of Pittsburgh. Travel, transpiration, history, architecture, culture, attractions, events, dining, nightlife are all in Pittsburgh 2018 City Guide, along with traveler necessities such as accommodations, lodging, and things to do and enjoy. Much of Pittsburgh 2018 City Guide includes insider inspired feature write-ups on some the best and most quintessential Pittsburgh places. When it comes to dining and nightlife our goal was to stick to those places that are unique to Pittsburgh and avoid places that are regional or nationwide chains. Though, as the case of Lodging, that cannot always be the case, all the places we picked to include feature characteristics that make them Pittsburgh places. All of the commercial places in this book were chosen. Some of these Pittsburgh places have full-length features by opting to subscribe to the production of this book. When they did, not only did they receive an in-depth feature review, they received extra benefits such as participating in free and countdown days where their best customers and guests obtain copies at a reduced price or for free. In all cases participating in our promotional efforts is never a criterion to being included. Pittsburgh places that we asked to be included but opted not to subscribe and participate in promotions are included at no charge and can be found throughout Pittsburgh City Guide 2018. Finally, we want to invite all readers to not only like us on Facebook, or add us to their Twitter follows, but please contact us with your own ideas on Pittsburgh. And most important please, please, please leave a review on amazon.com. Your feedback is the only way we can make Pittsburgh City Guide 2018 book better. And because it is a Print on Demand book, and readily changeable, we can include your suggestions, and react to your critiques in real-time. Which not only a wonderful advantage for us Print On Demand book publishers, but a superb way to see your helpful ideas and corrections make an impact on a Pittsburgh City Guide people use everyday. Many thanks for your time, Cardinal Content Maryann Huk and Alan Diede
