This is a great view of downtown Pittsburgh. We like to take visitors to Mount Washington to show them the city. Well worth the time.

What a view! We were going to take the incline railway, but the GPS in the car took us up to the top instead of the bottom of the hill. There are several lookout points just down the street from the incline that you get a fantastic view of the city. Great day or night!

Mt. Washington is a must see when visiting Pittsburgh. We took the Monongahela incline to get to the top. The neighborhood is lovely. The view is wonderful.

All of Mt.Washington has the best view of the city and three rivers. You can see all the attractions from one spot. Great during the day and even better at night! Romantic and a must if you are in the area!

It's a fun thing to do. Beautiful view, especially at night. We stopped for drinks and food at a little bar. Fun atmosphere. Enjoyed seeing Pittsburgh from the overlook.

If you're new to Pittsburgh this is a must. Find your way up there, easiest way is across the Liberty bridge out of town, then turn right at the last second just before to tunnels (The Tubes). Next stop is the top of Mt Washington. Find a parking spot and enjoy. Consider taking the Incline down the cliff to Station... More

It took me a while to find this attraction. There are really big hills that you have to go up in order to get here but once you get there its absolutely gorgeous. You can see the entire city. I will absolutely be back very to!antic.
