If you've never photographed it, the "trough" through the Allegheny Commons Park is certainly an enjoyable spot to spend some time. Not that far away from you, either.

If you want to check out the Wheeling & Lake Erie, Rook Yard in Green Tree is only about 10-15 minutes away IF traffic doesn't suck (which it often does). I wouldn't head over there on a Friday afternoon; I'll leave it at that.

I'm sure others will have more to add, but I wanted to throw a couple of easy ones out there for you based on what your schedule sounds like. If you don't know Pittsburgh very well, driving there can be a challenge. Even with locals leading us, statements such as "I know it's going to feel like we're driving in circles, because we are. But that's how you have to get there." were the norm. Chasing the Wheeling also led me to coin my slogan for the state: "Welcome to Pennsylvania. Road Closed." And it is construction season up there.
