Three Girls on the Town

Pittsburgh holds a unique place on the map and in the hearts of the people who know it. Three Rivers come together here, creating an urban setting like no other. When you visit Pittsburgh, you arrive in a city that lays claim to an incompariable renaissance, a vibrant cultural scene, ethnic charms, friendly inhabitants, exquisite architecture and enticing recreation opportunities. There is something for everyone and unique experiences you won't find anywhere else.

This was the (2) girls first trip into a large metropolitian area. They were both very fascinated with all the different contrast to our Rural setting in West Virginia.

Looking out over the city

Ride the historic Dusquesne or Monongahela Inclines to the top of Mount Washingto to get the perfect bird's eye view of the City and the three rivers below.

This was a beautiful view from the top, and quite inexpensive. See more about our Incline experience.

Vonne and Noel enjoyed the scenic view as well as myself...
