  • Beautiful overlook, we ended up just driving to it and parking on the street since it was free. We enjoyed getting ice cream nearby and then walking over to the overlooks. Some of the street is currently under construction though, so we had to keep going to the other side to walk.
  • I have been to this spot a couple.of times. This is the best view of Pittsburgh. You can come here for a morning run or a evening walk, or a date, or just to relax. I usually get here after picking up lunch so I can eat while enjoying the great view. If you visit Pittsburgh, you must come here.
  • Such a beautiful place and a great view of the city from the overlook. I love going there and taking pics of the sunsets. It also has a nice lil playground for kids and a free movie every Saturday night during the summer (weather permitting). I've also seen live bands play there too. All n all, it's a great place to chill and have fun!!
  • An absolutely magnificent panoramic view of the city of Pittsburgh as well as the three rivers. Not many cities in America have this type of big picture overview of the city without paying to ascend up some type of tower or building. You can drive to the top and park or if you feel like you need some exercise, take the walking path up. Parking could be a little challenging on busy days, so be prepared to drive around till you find a space.
  • Grandview Overlook was our first stop on our visit to Pittsburgh and it should definitely be yours too! Beautiful view of the city. Amazing to be so high up looking at Downtown. Plenty of street parking and multiple lookouts to get a clear view. Beautiful place to go for a run, if you don't mind a few hills.
