This is a random thread. Where'd you get the idea to compare Pittsburgh and SF???

I'd choose Pittsburgh. It REALLY gets a bad rap. Lots to do and very beautiful city. Too many people get caught up in the pre-80's smokey Pittsburgh stereotype. Though SF is a nice city, it's way too expensive and earthquake prone for me.

San Francisco all the way. Pittsburgh nor practically any other city doesn't come close to what it has to offer. Internationally: guide books about SF: 1000s. Guidebooks about Pittsburgh: 0.

There actually are some similarities. Both are quite hilly. Both have some unique forms of transportation (calbe cars, inclines).

Pittsburgh and Cleveland have transformed their images of the 70s, and many people have yet to see this. Both have great culural districts, large urban parks, great skylines, diversity, and lots of large companies based in these cities. People just don't want to see this because they see the name.

Pittsburgh gets my vote.

It's best to base your opinions on those of other people...

I think you can compare Pittsburgh with Seattle and San Francisco.

If you have a lot of money, Sausalito and Tiburon cannot be beat. If you really mean 'Oakland' when you say 'San Francisco,' then, uh, you're not giving us the full story.

San Jose and Silicon Valley are interesting, but overrated. I would rather be closer to the Great Lakes, and take an occasional vacation out there.

Good point.

I've never been to SF, but from what I've heard and read, I think I'd like it.
