Went for a nice walk through Point State Park to calm my nerves after a Steelers loss. It's a good walk from Heinz Field, but the exercise will do you good.

We rode our bikes along the path leading to the Point. The fountain is beautiful and the view across to the city, North Shore and Mount Washington is fantastic. Great place to relax and enjoy the rivers.

Really cool to take the kids and get some pictures. A lot of history to teach the kids about. Also cool just to walk around, especially at night.

Short walk gets you to the fountain and pretty view of the city. You can see the bridges as well as the incline. Its a short walk and not very crowded.

What is your budget for lodging? There are some nice hotels and lodges on the coast and there are more budget motels along Hwy 101 in Marin. Manchester sounds good. You want to hike and bike. That would be a good place to base yourselves although I don't know about bike rentals in that area. It would be best to ask specific questions on the Mendocino forum. Eureka is good but Trinidad would be closer to the redwood parks. The places you have chosen to visit are all top-notch choices....More
