Walking on Grandview Avenue is a must see if you stay with us. The views are breath taking and perfect for taking stunning pictures. Make sure you see the city at night. It is beautiful. During the summer, you can often see the Pirates in action.

In my opinion, this is one of the best parks in the country. The view is postcard stunning. We have a game package and love to go and enjoy the games. If the Pirates are in town during your stay, try to check them out.

This is the closest you will get to the feel of NYC. Stroll the streets late at night and the bars will be packed and the sidewalks full. Parking is a bear so plan accordingly.
