Known under two famous sobriquets, Steel City and City of Bridges (there are 644 bridges available to cross), Pittsburgh is the largest city in Pennsylvania and has been granted the title of America’s most livable city repeatedly, most recently in 2014. It was also ranked third best city in the entire United States for seniors in 2011. Built at the source of the Ohio River,the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, the city proved to be a vital link for trade between the Midwest and the Atlantic, enriching itself accordingly along the way. Saturated with renowned museums, medical centers, parks, research centers, libraries, a vibrantly diverse cultural district, and the most bars per capita in the U.S., independent living in Pittsburgh should be high on the list of any prospective retiree.
