If you have never been to Pittsburgh…you are in for a pleasant surprise!
Pittsburgh is easy to get to whether you’re driving or flying. It’s a beautiful city of hills, bridges, cultural attractions, and exciting nightlife.
The conference hotel is located on the Allegheny River in the heart of the cultural district and Downtown Pittsburgh. It’s within walking distance of theaters and museums as well as shopping and restaurants.
Also, you have to try Pittsburgh’s historic inclines – they are 143 and 136 years old! The inclines will take you up Mount Washington for spectacular views overlooking the city. For more information on what to do while you’re in Pittsburgh, see: http://macmla.libguides.com/mac_pittsburgh.
