Where the two rivers in Pittsburgh meet with a view of the city and the Steelers Stadium.

Great place to finish your day and it's right next to downtown. I would recommend getting food at PPG Place a couple blocks away and bringing it to eat and watch the sunset for dinner. You can watch and listen to the concerts happening during the summer at the Steelers Stadium on the other side of the river. 

On either side of the point is a walking trail where you can walk the entire downtown of the city right along the river. 

I've gone kayaking here and you can do stand up paddle boarding as well. 

As you can probably tell from the pictures, this was kind of my go to place for portraits, so make sure to take your camera. The point has the reflection from the water around sunset so everyone looks great in this light.
