If you're looking to woo your partner with an urban escape, Pittsburgh offers a lower-cost alternative to the Big Apple's big-city opulence.

The convergence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers in downtown Pittsburgh provides a scenic backdrop for a weekend romantic getaway.

Couples can spend an entire day exploring the Carnegie Museums of art, natural history and science, and The Andy Warhol Museum. And for a night out on the town, Pittsburgh offers an array of cosmopolitan restaurants and nightlife.

The former steel hub has enjoyed a renaissance in the past decade, but it still flies under the radar.

"There's lots to do, and it's frequently overlooked," Clampet says. "So if you're looking for a bargain, it's a good place."
