In the April cover story, Men’s Journal named Pittsburgh one of the Best Places to Live in 2016.
The list includes “10 towns where you can ski, bike, climb, or paddle without forcing your career into early retirement.”
Pittsburgh is cited for its emerging tech sector, which accounts for a third of its wages, along with an affordable lifestyle and neighborhoods thick with “sidewalk cafés, tapa bars, breweries and cider joints, all connected by 67 miles of bike lanes and a highly rated transit system.”
Other cities on the top 10 list include Boise, Fort Collins, Greenville, Salt Lake City, Carlsbad, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Ithaca, N.Y, Bainbridge Island, and Boulder.
The April issue hit newsstands on Friday but the article has yet to appear online. When it does, NEXTpittsburgh will link to it here.
It’s not the first time Pittsburgh has been cited as a best place to live in Men’s Journal. It made the 50 Best Places to Live in America list when they wrote this about our city: “The city’s hillside neighborhoods offer spectacular views of three great rivers — the Monongahela, the Allegheny, and the Ohio — which meet downtown at the Point, an 18th-century military fort that’s now a 36-acre city park. Housing options include a Victorian mansion in old-money Shadyside for $475,000 or a row house in artist-gentrified Lawrenceville for $200,000.”
Pittsburgh was also on the magazine’s list of 10 Most Underrated Travel Destinations.
