We always bring our friends and family to Mt. Washington. It offers the best view of any city I have ever visited. You can get great photos with the city for your background. This is a must see if your coming to the Burgh. While your up there, you might as well take the incline down to Station Square and... More

Pittsburgh has exceptional delights from the views off Mount Washington to a ride on the inclines. Pittsburgh is exciting. Plan on dinner at the Tin Angel at sundown and watch the city below light up.

Taking a trip up one of the two inclines will bring you to the top of Mt. Washington. This is where you want to go to really get the fabulous view of Pittsburgh. Restaurants abound up there, however, most of them are rather pricey. There's nothing like a great meal with a view to match!

You get a great view of the city from Mt. Washington. You can walk for quite a distance just looking at the city and you'll get pictures from different perspectives. You could park at Station Square. Take the Mon Incline up to Mt. Washington. Then walk all the way past the Duquesne Incline to the "Point of View" monument. It's... More

you stand on one of the lookouts that stick out over the hill and it almost seems as though you can reach out and touch the buildings in downtown Pittsburgh.what a sight.

Since I was born in the North Side of Pittsburgh - I know the city well. Your visit should start with a visit to the top of Mt. Washington where you can take the incline down to the bottom and then return to the top of Mt. Washington. Their is no better place to take in the view of the... More

Pittsburgh's Point where the three rivers meet is a spectacular confluence, not only of the waterways and river traffic, but also the thrust of the downtown skyscrapers and the stadiums on the North Shore that stare across the river. Take the 19th century Incline up Mt. Washington, have dinner on Grandview Avenue, and watch the sun set down the Ohio.

Many great options for food that all have great views of the city. Some are pricier than others, but well worth it!

This is by far one of the best views in the City and it is such an awesome experience to see the 3 rivers that come together. The fountain at the point, Heiniz Field, PNC Park and all the beautiful skyline. It's just breathtaking!
