Most People Don’t Know That One Of The World’s Best Destinations Is Right Here In Pennsylvania
Perhaps nothing stirs creativity and passion as much as traveling to new destinations – the lush green of New Zealand, the stunning landscape of Canada, and the snow-capped scenery of Finland. These are the top three destinations to visit in 2017, as named by
Harper’s Bazaar. Only two U.S. cities made the cut; one of them is right here in Pennsylvania and came in at number four. Without further ado, here is the one city in Pennsylvania that earned recognition as one of the world’s best destinations in 2017:
Once shrouded in a thick curtain of smoke from the steel mills, Pittsburgh has since transformed into a vibrant 21st century city, a technological and a medical hub, a cultural hot spot, and a foodie's dream come true.
Those in search of a rich cultural experience need look no further than Pittsburgh. The Andy Warhol Museum, The Carnegie Museums, and the Mattress Factory only scratch the proverbial surface of Pittsburgh's cultural landscape.
With an eclectic culinary scene, Pittsburgh promises to satisfy your taste buds. Umami Pittsburgh, a Japanese bar, gained recognition from Harpers Bazaar. The charming spot in Lawrenceville offers a menu with such affordable street foods as...
Japanese eggplant, bacon quail egg, sushi, miso soup, and tempura.
Visit Umami Pittsburgh at 202 38th Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15201.
If you prefer a Mediterranean meal, head to the Cure in Lawrenceville, also recognized by Harpers Bazaar. Led by Head Chef and owner Justin Severino, Cure uses fresh ingredients from local farms and features both tasting menus and a la carte dinner entrees such as...
Oysters, albacore tuna, pork belly, New York Strip au Poivre, and Locust Point Farm Chicken.

Indulge in an authentic Mexican meal at Tako, conveniently located within easy walking distance of PNC Park and the theaters of the Cultural District. The quirky downtown restaurant features such favorite dishes as...
Beet tostadas, chorizo carnitas, thrice cooked wings and, of course, tacos. Pair your meal with a gourmet margarita, a cocktail, beer, or a tall glass of Coke.

For traditional American fare, Harpers Bazaar recommends a hearty meal at Meat and Potatoes, a lively gastropub that welcomes guests for Saturday and Sunday brunch, lunch, dinner, and late night meals. Peruse the generous menu that features such dishes as...
Burgers, pot roast, hot chicken, pork, pimento mac and cheese, and roasted chicken.

But, Pittsburgh's more than just cultural activities and eclectic restaurants. The city is dotted with charming neighborhoods like Shadyside, a dog-friendly area with restaurants and shops that welcome both you and your pooch.
Stroll down Walnut Street, filled with quaint restaurants and stores like Hey Betty, a shop brimming with vintage items.
While one day in Pittsburgh is certainly doable, you probably won't have enough time to do, see, and experience all you want. Harpers Bazaar recommends, among other accommodations, the Hotel Monaco.
Reserve a traditional room or one of the spacious suites, such as the Spa King Room or the Emperor Suite. Guests enjoy such amenities as in room dining 24 hours a day, pet-friendly rooms, a fitness center onsite, and free WiFi.
