PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Another day, another “best” list. The United Kingdom’s National Geographic Traveller has ranked Pittsburgh 3rd on its must-see destinations for 2019, behind only Setouchi, Japan and Antarctica.

A big reason Pittsburgh made the list are the new direct flights from Heathrow Airport in London to Pittsburgh beginning April 2.

Other factors include The History Center hosting the Apollo 11 exhibit though early next year and the Carnegie museums, especially the Andy Warhol Museum.

The traveller says “While Pittsburgh is a blue-collar town at heart, it’s much more elegant than visitors might expect.”

The complete list:

  • 1. Setouchi
  • 2. Antarctica
  • 3. Pittsburgh
  • 4. Corsica
  • 5. Cambodia
  • 6. San Miguel de Allende
  • 7. West Yorkshire
