Consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities, Pittsburgh is also a great place to visit. And a stay in Monroeville makes that easy. A fifteen-minute drive puts you into the heart of the action, with night clubs, theatres, museums, galleries, sporting events, casino gambling, river tours, you name it. So stay in Monroeville, but play in Pittsburgh.
Think you have to go to the country to enjoy the great outdoors? Think again. VisitPittsburgh is your source for the great outdoors right outside your window. The Three Rivers Heritage Trail is a wonderful pedestrian trail and greenway system in the Pittsburgh region running for 21 miles along both sides of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers. It is an almost complete public route for cyclists, walkers, runners, and in some places rollerbladers. And bikes are available for rent right on the trail in two locations from Golden Triangle Bike Rental. Or how about seeing the city from the river — literally. Kayak Pittsburgh offers rentals from May through October every year. Kayaking is easy to learn and great for beginners. No experience is necessary and most folks learn how to manage a kayak in 10 to 15 minutes.
