America's Coolest River Walks
Three Rivers Heritage Trail, Pittsburgh
Why It’s Cool: Where the
Allegheny and Monongahela meet to form the Ohio River, 22 miles of riverside
paths wind throughout the city limits—and are best explored by bike. Rent a
mountain, recumbent, tandem, or surrey cycle at Golden
Triangle Bike Rentals, and stop at Over
the Bar Café, where vintage and art bikes hang from bicycle-themed murals
on the ceiling. Try a locally brewed Pedal Pale Ale
with a hamburger—Pittsburghers call them Pitts-Burgers—topped with the city’s
traditional fried egg and coleslaw.
Don’t Miss: The Andy Warhol
Museum honors local-boy-makes-good with more than 12,000 works of art
covering seven stories.
