July 18, 2015 - Since 2000, no city has experienced such change quite like Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Discover how the one-time Steel Capital of the U.S. rose from the ashes to become one of America's top vacation destinations with help from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown.

It was just 30 years ago that the city of Pittsburgh was in the midst of one of the greatest economic depressions in history. Following the collapse of the steel industry, Pittsburghers struggled for years to transform the city into the urban oasis it is today.

One of the driving forces behind Pittsburgh's revitalization is the limitless activities that seem to be awaiting travelers around every corner. Former rundown and abandoned buildings scattered throughout the city have been repurposed into galleries, music halls, eateries and everything in between to restore life in Pittsburgh's downtown area.

No matter where your interests lie, there is something to see and do for every member of the family. Art lovers will be sure not to miss the eclectic mix of contemporary and classical art galleries scattered throughout the city, while foodies will love wining and dining their way through Pittsburgh's expectation shattering eateries in downtown's Cultural District.

Of course, no visit to the city is complete without first taking a trip up one of two classic cable car lifts. The Monongahela and Duquesne Inclines take visitors to the top of Mt. Washington, providing stunning views on your way to the top, where guests gather to catch a glimpse of Pittsburgh's iconic skyline and Point State Park.

If you're traveling with sports fans, you simply can do no better than traveling to the 'City of Champions.' Home to over a dozen professional sports teams, sports lovers can catch a game no matter what the season. While the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates may have the fame, don't forget to check out the Pittsburgh Power, Riverhounds and the University of Pittsburgh Panthers during your stay.

With so much to see, do, taste and experience, it's no wonder that travelers from all across the globe are flocking to Pittsburgh like never before. Find out what all the buzz is about for yourself by visiting
