PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh is among the best places to live in the United States, according to a new listing from U.S. News and World Report.

Multiple cities in Pennsylvania are on the 2020-2021 Best Places to Live rankings.

Pittsburgh comes in at No. 77.

U.S. News and World Report says of Pittsburgh, “Emerging from a dying steel industry, Pittsburgh is earning another name: reinvention city.”

They site our state, county, city and riverfront parks as a big perk. In addition, they call us a “hub of technology and education,” thanks to our universities and the growing number of technological-based businesses locating here.
