Pittsburgh is known the world over for its breathtaking skyline, topography and rivers, and has been attracting more and more attention these days from travel writers, bloggers and photographers. Just see what USA Today has to say about us (again).

We think this week’s featured photo, submitted by Pittsburgh Instagrammer @loriallofus12, is easily one of the most stunning captures of Downtown Pittsburgh at night we have seen in a long time. We love the illumination, reflections and tranquility it conveys, as well as a passion and shared love for our picturesque city.
