Agreed. Pittsburgh has really come around from what older generations remember it as; it once was a smoggy industrial town without much to recommend it. A tech boom that started in the late 90s has picked up a lot of steam recently (having great universities eventually pays off) and it's affordable, livable, and has good public transit while still being car friendly. I lived there from 2002 to 2011 and was very happy there.
(It does have bitterly cold winters and transit to other cities is lacking, but those are the only faults I see)
