In the midst of an urban revitalization, Pittsburgh has been recognized time and again as one of the most livable cities in America. Beautifully positioned at the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers, the “City of Bridges” boasts more bridges than any other city in the world. Once the center for American steel production, Pittsburgh’s economic landscape has shifted in recent decades to favor industries like education, finance, healthcare and technology.
With the support of Visit Pittsburgh, I recently toured the “Steel City” to experience all that it has to offer. Pittsburgh’s wheelchair-friendly attractions, hotels, sporting venues and public transportation system make the city an attractive destination for travelers with disabilities. Use this guide to plan and make the most of your wheelchair accessible Pittsburgh vacation.
