TripCart's newest travel guide for Southwestern Pennsylvania covers the "Steel City" of Pittsburgh as well as some of Frank Lloyd Wright's most amazing work. No other city in the world has as many bridges (720), save Venice. Here's our take on what's waiting for you just hours from the Three Rivers-
The southwestern Pennsylvania region is one of the United States’ best-kept travel secrets. Located less than two hours from Pittsburgh at the gateway to the Laurel Mountains, Ohiopyle State Park features more than 19,000 acres of pristine wilderness. Ohiopyle's 1,700-foot river gorge, breathtaking waterfalls, and natural waterslides are understandably among the region’s highlights. Winding its way through the region, the 14-mile mighty Youghiogheny River (pronounced: “Yock-uh-gain-ee” ) offers tourists great trout fishing, miles of scenic biking trails, and some of the best whitewater rafting in the eastern United States. Also near Ohiopyle are world-class architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s modern masterworks, Kentucky Knob and Fallingwater, both of which expertly blend the beauty of nature with the needs of man.
