I'm visiting the east coast next week and after seeing the movie "Jack Reacher" I've decided to make a quick detour to Pittsburgh. I arrive in the morning and leave early the next day so I only have a day available. Thankfully it is summer so I have a lot of daylight hours. Point State Park, the Cathedral of Learning and Mt Washington are the three must sees for me.
After checking into my hotel, I'll to go the Catherdral of Learning (via cab probably) and later in the evening I plan to to go Mt Washington from Point State Park so I can see the view in both sunlight and nighttime.
I'll therefore probably have a view hours to spare from the time I arrive back into the city center to the time I go to the park which I predict will be late afternoon. So, my question is: can anyone recommend a good walking route around Pittsburgh city center that would allow me to observe the nicer / more interesting / more unusual parts of the city. I won't have time to visit any other museums. I'd just like a good few hours stroll around the city with a nice stop for lunch and get a good feel of the city
Also, what is the best walking route from Point State Park to the Duquesne incline.
Thanks for your help
