Surrounded by the urban bustle of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Bartram’s Garden is America’s oldest living botanical garden. Located where the three rivers meet (Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio) at Pittsburgh’s Golden Triangle, the park’s gushing 150-foot-high water fountain has come to symbolize Pittsburgh. The park covers only 36 acres, but it’s loaded with history. Philadelphia, the Keystone State’s largest city, displays its rich history in Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and the Liberty Bell, an enduring symbol of American freedom, once hung in the steeple. 

Surrounded by the three rivers, visitors can enjoy taking a stroll through Point State Park or Shenley Park. The Three Rivers Heritage Trail provides 24 miles to view the beautiful city by renting bicycles or walking alongside the river. See More Adventures in Pittsburgh here.
