Schenley Park behind the wall and adjoining Forbes Avenue is where you’ll see beautiful old college buildings and Pittsburgh’s fine museums. The Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History is one of a kind and only a short ride from Squirrel Hill’s shuls and eateries.
So if you want to visit a thriving city rich with baseball and history and architectural splendor, go to Pittsburgh. And it doesn’t have to be a “Mancation.” Women will find Pittsburgh worth a visit, too.
