Moving from Los Angeles, CA to Pittsburgh, PA

Moving from Los Angeles, CA to Pittsburgh, PA?

Is the second largest city in the state of Pennsylvania calling your name? If so, it’s time to pack your moving boxes and head on to Pittsburgh! We know you’ll miss living in L.A. (who wouldn’t?!), but the “City of Steel” has a lot to offer! Let’s take a look at what you need to know about moving from Los Angeles, CA to Pittsburgh, PA.

How big is Pittsburgh?

Compared to L.A.’s population of 12.8 million, Pittsburgh is tiny! With only 2.6 million people, you may feel like you’re living in a small town!

Should I fly or drive when moving from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh?

It’s totally up to you! If you like the idea of seeing the United States up close and personal, then you should drive. But if you’d rather see it from above, flying is the way to go. Either way, you’ll be passing through or over 9 different states!

What’s the weather like in Pittsburgh?

Say goodbye to those pleasant L.A. temps and say hello to cold winters and hot and humid summers. January is Pittsburgh’s coldest month, with temps averaging in the high 20s! That’s a far cry from L.A.’s January average in the 60s! It also snows a lot in Pittsburgh, so you’ll need to invest in a snow blower and warm winter coat. On average, Pittsburgh receives 41.5 inches of snow per year!

What are the schools like in Pittsburgh?

Just like in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh also has many educational opportunities. For higher education, there’s Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Duquesne University. For secondary education, you can enroll your child in Pittsburgh Public Schools, a number of charter and magnet schools, and plenty of private schools.

Is there public transportation in Pittsburgh?

You bet! You’ll find it easy to transition from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority to Pittsburgh’s public transportation options. The Port Authority of Allegheny County serves the area with 875+ buses, 83 light rail vehicles, two inclines, and the nation’s largest paratransit program of its kind.

Why is Pittsburgh called the City of Steel?

Because Pittsburgh credits its growth to the extensive trade of steel in the 1970s. There are 300+ steel-related businesses in the city! Did you know that Pittsburgh is also called the ‘City of Bridges’? The city has three more bridges than Venice, Italy – approximately 446!

What’s there to do in Pittsburgh, anyway?

We know; L.A. seems to have everything…lots of fun things to do, great food, sports, and so much more. But so does Pittsburgh! In fact, NBC’s Today show named the city as one of the best places in the world to visit in 2013.

Festivals. Whatever you love, Pittsburgh likely has a festival for it. Explore a local calendar to find out what's going on soon.

Performing Arts. Since the early 1800s, theatre has been a staple in the city. Head on down to the Cultural District to see what everyone’s raving about.

Sports. Sports are abundant in Pittsburgh. Head to Heinz field to watch the Steelers, CONSOL Energy Center to see the Penguins, or to PNC Park to cheer on the Pirates.
