  • My kids love going to the overlook. Especially when they have a holiday event! Sometimes just to enjoy a beautiful view of the city:)
  • Wonderful vantage point to look at Pittsburgh downtown , Point state park and highways. Great place for a walk and loose your thoughts in active downtown lights and highway lights
  • A friend took me on a sightseeing adventure that in itself was amazing. The Overlook had a few people visiting and taking pictures. I was actually awestruck as I come from a state that is flat ergo Florida. Wow and double Wow.. Magnificent view of beautiful Pittsburgh's best. Took pics and was totally impressed..
  • Amazing place for Pittsburgh downtown skyline view. Parking spots are there including handicap parking . View is better than Duquesne Incline Upper station . We went at night . Less crowded. Worth the visit .
  • Amazing view of Pittsburgh's downtown, the rivers and the surrounding area. Perfect for a sunny Lord's Day (Sunday) afternoon walk. There's also space to enjoy a picnic up here.

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.
