Pittsburgh in the Fall
I am in Pittsburgh, PA this week spending time with many of my closest friends. We are members of a very fine group of Internet Entrepreneurs who meet twice a year to network and have lots of fun.
Pittsburgh is only 280 miles from my home in Cincinnati, OH and although both cities are located on the Ohio River and both are roughly the same size, Pittsburgh rocks! In many ways Pittsburgh reminds me of a miniature Chicago, IL. The architecture of the buildings talks to you that this is a real city, not an imposter.
I am staying at the Hilton Hotel that is part of the Gateway Center complex of buildings in downtown Pittsburgh. Walk out the front door of the Hilton, cross the street and you are instantly in Point State Park. This park is an inviting green space in a sea of concrete and steel that honors the origin of the Ohio River and the Fort Pitt Museum. Stand at the right place near the fountain and you can dip your toes in waters from the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers all at once!
If your travels take you near Pittsburgh, PA, I highly recommend you stop by for several days. I can tell you for a fact I will come back to explore the city to a much greater degree.
