This week feels so long but then it feels like it flew by (if that makes sense lol). I can't believe May has gone by so fast, where did it go? Anyway, last Saturday, we went to Point State Park in Pittsburgh. We always go to Pittsburgh for some Asian goodies but we've never ventured into the park within the city. We sometimes see the big display of water fountain when we drive by we didn't know about this park until we watched the movie, Jack Reacher.
Some of the scenes of Jack Reacher movie was shot in Point State Park. So we said, we should check it out and finally last weekend, that's what we did as part of our memorial adventures.
We always see the Gateway Clipper Fleet going and I am always curious. My husband said that he went on one of these tours when he was a kid.
It said that the Pittsburgh Riverboat Tours, cruise with Gateway Clipper Fleet has been operating for over 50 years now which says a lot of how people enjoy it. I think they offer dining too when you do the cruise.
Our neighbor's daughter's wedding was held in one of this river boat tours. The picturesque city skyline as the backdrop is just beautiful, perfect for any special occassion or event.
I even saw like a nipa hut type of boat in there. That would be relaxing too.
According to the information I read, Point State Park is a Pennsylvania state park on 36 acres in Downtown Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, forming the Ohio River. So if you have a boat, you can travel by the river to go to Ohio. My husband said that when his late brother owned a boat, they usually go on a ride during summer time.
Pittsburgh is definitely a great city to explore. We are lucky to live an hour from it so we can just drive there anytime we want. We usually just go when we have to buy Asian products from the Chinese store since we don't have one in our small city of Weirton. I will post the huge water fountain next time.
