Local Attractions

Within walking distance to CMU

  • Carnegie Museums (around the corner) -  Especially check out the dinosaurs, the hall of minerals (much better than it sounds) and the 1:1 scale models of famous buildings in the hall of architecture (nothing was too good for Andrew's plebians).
  • Phipps Conservatory (across the lawn) - Award-winning rain forest exhibit.  Runs on a power cell, which is why the G20 visited.  Do it with lunch---nice, sunny cafe and sidewalk dining. 
  • Schenley Park (next door) - Lots of wooded trails.  Visitor center has a nice cafe with canyon view patio.  Nice for lunch.
