Trip to Pennsylvania
I've been doing a little weekend traveling to balance my busy weeks and last weekend Zach and I adventured on a road trip through Pennsylvania. To start, we went to the city of Pittsburg because it was close to two major attractions we couldn't wait to see.
Pittsburgh was a very interesting place... I have never really seen anything else like it. Since it was a steel town it produced and shipped a lot of steel. No one really lived in the downtown core because it was too polluted. Now, it's a big sports town with a great football, baseball and hockey teams. The city is really starting to come to life with lots of restaurants and lots of entertainment revolving around athletics. But still no one actually lives downtown Pittsburg so there isn't much shopping, actually almost no shopping, downtown. There isn't even a grocery store.
There are two great universities that are famous for there tech programs, so that is what I feel will be the next big thing for Pittsburg. The picture below shows the amazing building they had on one of their university campuses. Another interesting thing is that there is almost no Taxi's because Uber has taken over. Better yet, they actually have Uber's self-driving cars on the road being tested there. Exciting progress in technology is happening all over the city.
