Awesome lookouts over the city on an easy walk. Fun for the kids during the day & super romantic at night. Take the incline up for an added bonus.

If you want to see the best few of Pittsburgh....all the stadiums and rivers...take the short (and inexpensive but exact change) and take the incline from Station Square to the viewing strip at the top. Great sightseeing experience and only takes as long as you make it.

Walk or Ride the Incline or drive up and over the hills to arrive. Breathtaking views at night of the downtown and rivers and sports arenas and bridges. Food for all budgets at the top. Day time views are wonderful too now that the air is clean. Great for getting a sense of the city and how geography shaped it... More

I took the Duquesne incline. The view is beautiful and it's worth spending some time too see the details. I do recomend the visit.

One of the most amazing places in Pittsburgh. Historical and a great view. When you learn the history of it, all of a sudden you realize how important Pittsburgh was almost 300 years ago.

Mount Washington was an impressive thing to do while visiting Pittsburgh as a tourist. The incline ride is very old school, and part of the fun. Not to mention very inexpensive. Then the view of the city from the top is spectacular. Unfortunately I did not realize there were two different inclines during our visit. We went up and down... More

Easily the most spectacular view of a major downtown area in the country. We rode up the Monongahela Incline to the top, strolled Grandview Street, had a cocktail and then rode back down. On our return trip to Pittsburgh, we will do this at night. Our schedule on this trip didn't allow us time for the night trip.

This is a great place to view the city. It overlooks all of downtown Pittsburgh and is amazing. The ride up the incline is great fun and an unusual experience.
