Need to take a walk?

Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle occupies a compact 50-acre area bordered by Grant Street to the east, Penn Avenue to the north and the Boulevard of the Allies to the south. You're never more than a few blocks to your destination, and downtown is easy to walk and nicely scaled for pedestrian enjoyment. There are parks and plazas spaced conveniently between office towers and retail corridors.

With this walking tour guide in hand, you can walk the route in whatever way is most convenient for you.

This route will be marked on a map found inside your Delegate bag.
