Pittsburgh, A Mini-Downtown Exploration

The Husband and I explored Downtown Pittsburgh in the short amount of time we had by first, stopping to eat at Delucas

After breakfast we decided to walk the river front. If you don't know, downtown Pittsburgh is located where the two rivers meet to form the Ohio River: the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers. They have created beautiful walk/bike paths along the river front (which in downtown is almost everywhere) so that the beauty of the river can be explored. You can imagine b/c of how the city is built around the rivers, there are plenty of bridges... Here are a few shots that we took along our walk...






Heinz is huge in Pittsbugh (little did I know...), so the football stadium is named Heinz field, many other buildings bear the name "Heinz" and you pretty much see it everywhere. It's pretty cool b/c its such a familiar thing to me but i had no clue how huge it was in Pittsburgh or that it even came from there... check out some of these photos...


Along the walk/bike path there were some benches and in front of these benches was this stone...

I made hubby strike a pose ;)



I bought a hat at this little vendor near breakfast... best idea ever since the weather was hot!

And along side the river front was these murals by some students in the area


We had such a great time walking, but the best pictures are yet to come... well at least for you sports enthusiast...

If you haven't been to Pittsburgh, I highly suggest a visit. Husband and I are already planning another trip :)
