The Conde Nast Traveler went in search of the nation’s most underrated cities and came to this conclusion: Pittsburgh doesn’t always get the credit it deserves.

Laura Dannen Redman had this to say about the steel city:

“Pittsburgh natives already know how good they’ve got it, but when the rest of yinz wise up, you’ll see the steel city for its museums and theater scene (the Andy Warhol Museum celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Frick are always a draw, and Carnegie Mellon continues to turn out Broadway-bound thespians); its new Ace Hotel, slated to open in East Liberty in 2015; and, of course, its football team. A Steelers ticket is the biggest ticket in town.”

Among the other 10 mentions were such cities as Portland, Maine, Birmingham, Alabama, and Flagstaff Arizona.
