The World’s First NikeTown

For about 12 rainy hours, I enjoyed one of Europe’s favorite summer getaways. But it wasn’t summer and it wasn’t sunny. However, in no way did that prevent me from enjoying the beautiful beach town of Nice, France. The soaking wet streets reminded me of Paris. Sure, it looks wonderfully old and quaint. But Nice…

The Holiday Season is always better with a visit to an art museum, especially when showing the ‘rents around Pittsburgh for the first time.

It has a sweet skyline and the downtown area is easy to get around on foot. If you travel down Broadway towards the river, you’ll hear live country music pouring out…
