  • the park is a little hard to find, but offer the best views of the city. Park is very clean, and has a good amount of parking. Not much to do there except take in the amazing views.  more »

  • Was there for 4th of July fireworks. Stayed afterwards to see the view. This is a great place to check out the view of the city.
  • Beautiful spot to view the city and alot quieter than the tourist ridden Grandview avenue. Bring a picnic.
  • It is a good idea to come here at least once a season. Even as they were changing plant and flower displays into the Christmas season, it was fascinating. It's such a lovely place to walk, and I wish there were more places to sit quietly, but it is a gem of a destination.
  • A great, postcard view of Pittsburgh without the hassle of getting to Mt Washington and fighting for a parking spot
  • Beautiful, clean, quiet and awesome view of downtown Pittsburgh, Heinze field & PNC ballparks.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
