Arriving in downtown Pittsburg was quite a pleasant surprise.
The city is actually very pretty with a large Waterfront.
I was surprised by how many bridges it has, 446 to be exact.
It is known as “The City of Bridges”. According to, Places
Rated Almanac, Forbes, and The Economist, it is titled America’s Most Livable City”.
We checked into a great downtown hotel, The Marriott Residence
Inn, next to PNC Park and a block from the Andy Warhol Museum.
The hotel was very nice, our suite was lovely, with a fully
equipped kitchen, overlooking PNC Park.
After an early dinner, we walked along the waterfront, very
impressed with the loveliness of this city. We than decided
to go to an area of Downtown, where we would ride a tram up
a 400 ft incline overlooking the city. The Duquesne Incline,
offers a panoramic view of the city and it’s three rivers.
USA Today Magazine, writes, it is the most beautiful view in
America. It is very impressive, and a great way to end our
second day on our road trip.
