If you’re looking to see downtown Pittsburgh but want to avoid the rush of the city, visit majestic Point State Park. Located where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers meet to form the Ohio, the park features breathtaking views, beautifully landscaped grounds, and the archaeological remains of Fort Pitt, Fort Duquesne, and thousands of years of Native American occupation. The “Forks of the Ohio” is a registered National Historic Landmark. For updated information, visit Point State Park.
In addition, the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and the City of Pittsburgh recently restored the city’s four regional parks – Frick, Highland, Riverview, and Schenley.
If you’re looking to escape the city entirely, an hour’s drive east on the PA Turnpike puts you in the heart of the Laurel Highlands and Ohiopyle State Park. The park offers fabulous walking and hiking trails or places to sit and enjoy a picnic while overlooking glorious rapids and waterfalls. If you’d really like to experience Ohiopyle, sign up for a rafting trip that includes a leisurely float down the Youghiogheny River or a high intensity whitewater adventure. It’s all here.
