On a list of exotic locations such as Helsinki, Myanmar and Rwanda, Pittsburgh is included on Conde Nast Traveler’s list of Top 15 Places to Go in 2015.

Brent Burket writes:

“The furnaces are long gone, but this city’s on fire. Pittsburgh reinvigorates my love of art every time I visit. Carnegie Museum of Art, The Warhol, Mattress Factory and Wood Street Galleries have been on a curatorial tear in recent years. The restaurant scene is also alight, led by Cure and Bar Marco, but hit the old school Primanti Brothers for the best sandwich of your life.”

With locations such as Cartagena, Colombia and Santa Teresa, Costa Rica topping the list, Pittsburgh is one of only two US cities to make the list (the other being Houston, Texas).
