Steel City

Dave and I have been coming to Pittsburgh together since 2010 to visit my family, primarily for Thanksgivings and Christmases. It's funny to think that we first came here for Thanksgiving 5 months after we first met, and now we're here, almost exactly 3 years later, working on wedding plans! Pittsburgh certainly has a lot of meaning for us. 

For today's post, we thought we'd share some of our favorite photos Dave has taken around the city during the time we've spent here. "Steel City" isn't nearly as gritty as you might think; it's actually one of our favorite cities with plenty of art, nice views, neat neighborhoods, and all those bridges crossing over the three rivers that intersect here: the Monongahela, Allegheny, and Ohio.

The Duquesne Incline, one of two that take riders to the top of Mt. Washington. 

A few photos from inside the Carnegie Museum of Art, which is always a great place to spend a day. 

Our favorite grocery store of all time, Giant Eagle Market District, is located in Pittsburgh. We always look forward to buying groceries here, especially cheese from their huge selection. 

Eat'n'Park is a Pittsburgh tradition. It's a 24-hour diner, and I've spent countless nights of my life here, drinking coffee and eating pie. 

Squirrel Hill is one of our favorite neighborhoods. There are tons of coffee and tea shops and local mom and pop stores and eateries, as well as gorgeous houses and green space in the surrounding area. 

This construction worker outside the Jewish synagogue wanted his picture taken! Pittsburgh can be such a friendly place.
