A trip to Mount Washington to see the view of the city from one of the overlooks is a "MUST" for any visitors of this city as is a ride on one of the inclines.

The Nighttime view from Mount Washington was recently voted as the 2nd most beautiful place in America by USA Weekend Magazine:

http://www.usaweekend.com/03_issues/...ingtravel.html

"In a nation with a wealth of stunning cities full of compelling stories, ranking Pittsburgh as the No. 2 beauty spot is perhaps our most surprising choice. But the Steel City's aesthetic appeal is undeniable, as is its very American capacity for renewal. Standing atop Mount Washington, the steep hill that rises giddily on the city's south side, sightseers enjoy the unforgettable panorama of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers flowing together to create the mighty Ohio, that waterway so essential in the nation's settlement. The rivers cup downtown's lustrous Golden Triangle, where landmark skyscrapers thrust upward like rockets. At night, lights twinkle on no fewer than 15 bridges. Almost as breathtaking as the vista itself is the urban renewal that made it possible. A century ago, a pall of smoke lay so thick over town that streetlights burned all day. As Pittsburgh continues an evolutionary course that has taken it from trading post to transportation hub to industrial goliath, we salute its reinvention into one of America's most scenic and livable communities. In the life of a city, there's nothing more beautiful, or inspiring, than a renaissance."

I think the Columbus zoo has an aquarium but I am not sure how big it is.

Baltimore's National Aquarium is probably the closest.

I'm a diehard Pirates Fan, but until the Nuttings display some willingness to actually pay for a team and keep some talent around, I'm afraid rather than chasing a penant, we'll pray for the elusive .500 season.

Perrytowne Aquarium, Wilkinsburg Aquarium, and Under The Sea are all gone and I was told months ago that Petland Monroeville was dropping aquatic livestock.

On some fine late spring evenings you can sit outside the Igloo and watch the Pens take it to some Detroit team.
