Do you open your eyes when you visit Pittsburgh? Going through the Fort Pitt Tunnel is a daunting task, but once your eyes adjust to the light (if it’s a sunny day), take a moment to gaze upon the breathtakingly beautiful city.
Whilst atop Mount Washington, drink in every curve, angle, twist and bend of that beautiful city skyline. If the Pirates aren’t performing well at PNC Park, gaze past the diamond to see buildings scraping the sky, bridges connecting the neighborhoods and the rolling hills to the east.
Our city truly is a gem hidden amongst the Allegheny Mountains.
