“Beautiful view of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

Mount Washington offers a gorgeous view of Pittsburgh at night. The incline is quaint and there is a small museum of incline memorabilia and postcards from inclines and cable cars around the world. There is a viewing platform outside and several more down the street. A few of Pittsburgh's most elegant restaurants are on Mount Washington although they are on the traditional side (steak, lobster etc.). But you can't beat the view.

“mt washington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012 via mobile

most amazing view i've seen.. (in my 16 years of life that is lol.) i only seen it in person at daytime, but i heard it's even more amazing at night. But it's hard to beat a city view like this one.

“The View is worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

You have to take a ride on the incline during the day and be on one of the lookout areas at night, especially during a light up night. Also a nice show when there are fireworks after a baseball game in PNC Park.
