We regularly spend an afternoon/evening walking Grandview Avenue. We stop at many of the establishments for a drink and settle on one for dinner. The views at each stop is breathtaking. Don't miss a chance to spend the day here.

Drive up the mount for spectacular views of the city. You can also take the cable car. But driving up is most fun. It is right by downtown and so it gives a great feel for the city.

Park your car at Station Square and Ride the Mongahela Incline plane up the mountain. The view of the city and the POINT is well worth it!

What a view! Worth the trip up there. Take the tram if you have time! Otherwise it is a quick UBER ride over there for less than $15 from North shore.
