The Tours

Many took the tours sponsored by the American Bell Association.  We took an excellent bus tour of Pittsburgh learning much about its history and revitalization.  We also saw the many bridges, narrow streets and tight turns. We rode the Duquesne Incline which was a steep look down.  Lunch was at the Grand Concourse before we went on to the Heinz History Center.  On the second day we boarded the Gateway Clipper Three Rives Sightseeing Cruise and learned even more about the city.  After a quick view of the Mars Spaceship we had lunch at the Springfield Grille.
