This place is truly breathtaking! I can only imagine how much hard work and money goes into keeping this place as pretty as it is. It is placed in a nice touristy area. My husband and I visited from Maryland and we were so impressed by the flowers and plants there. They even have a cute Cafe with healthy food options. We ate there after our visit in the gardens. The food was great and they had Vegan options! We had a great time walking through their perfectly landscaped gardens.

Today at the Pittsburgh Zoo, Noelle Teel, Tony Vanoy and I enjoyed watching the gorgeous flamingos. They are so colorful and I just love that shade of pink. We also enjoyed watching the huge Rhinos and it seemed like they were watching us too. They are so massive. They are one of my favorite animals. Tony Vanoy loves the lions since he is a Leo. Noelle Teel and I just love those big kitty cats. Great day at Pittsburgh Zoo. I love to visit them in the zoo & I would love to see them in the wild.

I'm the absolute most embarrassing, notorious, typical tourist so I LOVE museums and anything touristy for lack of a better word. Basically, I loved this museum and I was in pure bliss for a few hours while visiting. I came here after work (a super short walk from CMU) and spent 2 hours just wandering from exhibit to exhibit. From the dinosaurs to the modern art, I thought all of the displays were awesome.
