This eastern city boasts a vibrant downtown for out-of-town guests, international tourists and even local residents to spend a long weekend and explore the eclectic pop art, step back in time with history of religion, or take in the sights of the highest point of downtown.

Here are three things to do in Pittsburgh:

1. Visit the Andy Warhol Museum, the most comprehensive single-artist museum in the world.

2. Attend a Catholic mass service at St. Nicholas Croatian Catholic Church, the first Croatian church built in the United States. After service, docents are available to share the history of the church through masterpieces of murals created by Croatian artist Maxo Vanka.

3. Ride the Duquesne or Monongahela Incline. While they still serve as transportation for area residents, they are also a great way to enjoy the beautiful panoramic Pittsburgh skyline, a view ranked as the second most beautiful place in America by USA Today.
