Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle: Scenic Downtown at Confluence of Rivers
Downtown Pittsburgh is only 2 miles in diameter, but it manages to pack in a wide range of sights in its relatively small area. Amid the skyscrapers here, there are hundreds of bridges and more than 20 miles of dedicated bike trails that run along the rivers and beyond.
The city's history dates back 250 years, and it's worth it to take a walking tour from the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, during which you can learn about the area's rich past and reenact George Washington's famous victory break dance at some of the city's Revolutionary-era forts. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh's cultural district features art galleries, theaters, and several public art displays.
The nearby Oakland neighborhood is lined with family-friendly attractions, and it's reachable if you take a short trip in a car or cab. Here, you'll find the city's popular art and history museums and the Phipps Conservatory, which boasts 17 different botanical gardens, including an elaborate Victorian greenhouse and tropical garden.
