Pittsburgh is the prettiest on list of 10 romantic US cities

For one of America’s prettiest cities, Pittsburgh, says Yahoo Travel which just named Ten Unexpectedly Romantic Cities.

"Forget the smoky, long-gone steel mills, and focus on the graceful beauty of Pittsburgh, where the Allegheny and Monongahela meet to form the Ohio River at pretty Point State Park. For optimum romance, check into the Priory Hotel—a former Benedictine monastery on the city’s North Side, with just 42 cozy rooms, a fireplace in the lobby, and an on-call shuttle to downtown. Guests can stroll to nearby Max’s Allegheny Tavern, a classic with its beveled glass mirrors and hand-carved bar, to enjoy German specialties: The wienerschnitzel and sauerbraten get great kudos. Visit the nearby Pittsburgh-native’s Andy Warhol Museum, to see such Pop Art classics as his Campbell Soup Can, Portraits of Marilyn Monroe and his own self-portraits. Catch a Pirates game in summer. Take a cliff-hugging ride up the Duquesne Incline to the top of Mt. Washington—a popular place to propose—with fabulous views of the city below.  Drive out to nearby Moon Township, for dinner at Hyeholde, a castle in the woods, surrounded by lush gardens.  Choose the chef’s table option, if you’d like to dine in the kitchen."
