Daytime or nighttime are great for a magnificent view of the Ciry of Champions! Great view of the tree rivers and a bustling downtown. My favorite though is the nighttime with the city all lit up and if you can be there for a fireworks display, a memory not soon forgotten!

Cannot beat this view of Pittsburgh or any other city in the country! Very romantic. Be sure and take one of the inclines up and down as well.

Really awesome view of Pittsburgh, great in any season. Most of the time you can go there and not be too crowded. I gave it a 4 star (or green circles) only because it's more the backside of Pittsburgh, which I'm indifferent about. But for the sake of an overlook, having the most recognizable side would be a hair better.

If you want to get a magnificent view of the City of Pittsburgh take an incline ride to Mount Washington. You can stroll the sidewalk, eat at some fine restaurants & get a wonderful if the city from the observation decks that jut out over Mt Washington. It's wonderful place for picture taking

Take the incline and enjoy the view.....bridges are great from up here. You can get good pictures and if you are willing to spend money you can have a fabulous meal at one of the restaurants. Very enjoyable.

Every tourist should come here while visiting the city. Park below and ride the incline for an amazing experience. This will add awesome pictures to your photo album as the view of the city is spectacular. There are many 5 star restaurants with phenomenal view of the city also. Well worth the trip. Go late in the day before sunset... More

Have inclined, driven, & once taken a limo ride up to Mt. Washington. Bring your camera as the city-view is spectacular. When our 16-year old first got his license, he drove here just to take in the view. Have eaten a few special meals at some of the restaurants on the cliff-facing side and seen fireworks during a Pirate's baseball... More
