Most out of towners will have no idea what a Pittsburgher is talking about when he or she talks about "the giant rubber ducky." But the giant rubber duck will always have a place in a Pitttsburgher's heart. Basically, a famous inflatable GIANT rubber duck made Pittsburgh its first U.S. destination. It floated in various places throughout the city, such as right by the Pirate's stadium. And it was a HUGE hit (pun intended). 1,000,000 people went to visit the duck when it was in Pittsburgh.
