Last night we went into the city of Pittsburgh to see Nitro Circus. We are really enjoying these trips into the city. Just like here we lived outside the city in Orlando, but we didn’t go into the city of Orlando that often. Actually most things that people associate with the Orlando area actually aren’t in Orlando itself. The city of Orlando is rather small as far as cities go. There is a lot to do in the Orlando area, but the city itself didn’t hold as much to see and do as bigger cities.
The unique thing about the city of Pittsburgh is that even though it has the attractions and appeal of a big city, there is a lot to it that has more of a small city appeal.
Last night we were on the banks of the Monongahela River. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the city is surrounded by three rivers. The Monongahela (refereed to as the Mon by locals) is the south of the city. We were in an area called the South Side Flats, this is still in city of Pittsburgh, but the outside of the downtown area. During Nitro Circus we were looking across the Mon into the downtown area.
I love the bridges that you see around Pittsburgh. As I mentioned the downtown area is surrounded by rivers, that means you have to cross bridges to get downtown. While I’m not a fan of the traffic you find on these bridges, I love taking pictures of them.
We already have plans to head back to this new area we discovered. We want to ride the incline, go on a duck boat tour and just hang out near the rivers. We look forward to checking out other sections of the city to see what else our new city has in store for us. I know we will continue to enjoy our new home, town and city for years to come.
