There are also some beautiful places to propose at ground level in Pittsburgh too, including Point State Park, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and Carnegie Art Museum. In Pittsburgh, you can make your wedding proposal a milestone occasion to remember for the rest of your lives.
Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens
Located in 15 acres of Schenley Park, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is the perfect oasis of nature. There are shaded walkways, fragrant herb gardens, magnificent fountains and a Victorian steel and glass greenhouse that is home to tropical flowers, orchids, desert plants and a colorful butterfly forest. There are so many places that you can get down on one knee and pop the question, but don’t forget to choose your engagement ring. Modern geometric rings are popular and three-stone engagement rings inspired by the British Royal Family. Presenting your partner with an engagement ring when you propose is symbolic of your commitment. Perhaps one of the most beautiful places to propose in the botanical gardens is the Tropical Forest Conservatory, filled with colorful plants – there are even gushing waterfalls to provide a wonderful sound, when your future spouse says “yes!”
Kennywood Amusement Park
If you or your partner is an adrenaline junkie and you would like a wedding proposal with a difference, then head to the Kennywood Amusement Park. This traditional amusement park has some great rides for thrillseekers. You could pop the question whilst doing 75 miles an hour on the Steel Curtain, or whilst experiencing weightlessness on the Black Widow. If you’d like to stay one way round, so that your engagement ring doesn’t drop out of your pocket, then the Racer is a great ride to propose on. It’s the only single-continuous track rollercoaster in America. Your wedding proposal can be memorable and fun at the same time.
On a River Cruise
The city of Pittsburgh was built around the convergence of three rivers, the Ohio, the Allegheny and the Monongahela. Taking a river cruise is one of the best ways to see the city, and together you can learn about the history of Pittsburgh and see all of the architectural sites from the water. You can book a dinner cruise for your wedding proposal, enjoying a delicious meal together under the twinkling lights of the city. The fourth of July, during the fireworks would be a wonderful date for a wedding proposal – a real celebration of love.
Pittsburgh has plenty of impressive places that you can propose, both high and low. The Steel City can be a beautiful backdrop to a new chapter in your lives together.
