The Pittsburgh Tour Company's guides cart guests around on classic red double-decker buses straight out of London. These experienced guides divulge interesting factoids along the tour's 21 stops, which include a fish market, Heinz Field, and the city’s depository of old chewing gum that has been scraped off school desks. The company's fleet of four buses offers up the chance to view the city from the second story of closed or open bus tops.

Central Parking of Pennsylvania is but one branch of a nationwide business that stations cars in more than 1.2 million spaces throughout 2,500 garages. The coveted spots are located in the heart of each city near renowned hotels and destinations, housing rides near Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena or the salsa-dancing shadow of Sylvester Stallone that still shades a famous set of Philadelphian steps. Commuters snag discounts on Zipcars, which take up residence in more than 100 of the parking facilities.
Amid the uncertainty and complex nature of the aviation industry in the early 2000s, Denise and Mike decided to buck opposition and follow their dreams. The husband-and-wife team kept their dream relatively simple: move to northeast Ohio, secure season tickets for the Indians and Browns, and open up the world of flight to others. They soon took Mike's 35 years experience as an entrepreneur and Denise's time as a commercial pilot and turned it into American Winds Flight Academy. Today, their flight academy preps prospective pilots with FAA-approved ground courses and hands-on instruction in their fleet of Piper and Cessna airplanes and accommodating pterodactyls. The duo's 15-plus flight-training courses and fast-track program include everything from advanced flight-simulator instruction to commercial-pilot certification. Dedicated to assisting veterans on their path to become commercial pilots, American Winds Flight Academy is one of 12 FAA-licensed (Part 141) flight schools in the state of Ohio.
