This is a must when visiting Pittsburgh. The sites from up there are great. There are several ways to get there and you might have a mile or so from one lift to another. You can drive but the lifts are probably the best. Keep in mind one of the lifts is private and the other I do believe is... More

Pittsburgh is so fortunate to have such a beautiful scenic vista. Tonight I took out of town guests for a view from the lookout and they were so impressed. The new fountain looks amazing... and the City was lit up nicely. It was fully dark at about 8:45 p.m. and a lot of folks were strolling around. Definitely worth the... More

I always enjoy getting back to the Burg and heading up to Mt Washington. This was the 1st time I drove up, I usually take the incline. Great restaurants and the best views of downtown Pittsburgh!

If you are only going to see one thing while in the Burgh, it should be this view from Mount Washington. You do not have to take the incline to get there--there are streets, but it is an unusual option! ENJOY!

My husband and I took the Mongahela Incline to the top of Mount Washington. What a great view of the city! We went up during the daytime, but I can only imagine the view at night. Worth the $5 roundtrip cost.

It wasn't as good as I expected but it was pretty nice and you will definitely like it. Very nice views of Pittsburgh. It was shame I didn't see that at night, it must be great.

It's the 'not to be missed' view of the city, and it is amazing. There's a neighborhood right nearby too with dining options. Didn't ride the furnicular but it's neat to see it anyway.

The scenic lookout is definitely a must visit while in Pittsburgh. It was so neat to see the three rivers meet. Great photo backdrop with the skyline and rivers in the background.
