“What a spectacular view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I lived there my entire life and never took the incline to Mt. Washington until adulthood most recently. Great view of the Pittsburgh Skyline and overlooks. I was quite impressed and definitely a highlight of the trip to take pictures from the Top.

“Incline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We went on incline. It was an old-fashioned ride, but the view once you reach on top is great, we did not have time to take a stroll, but overall it was a good experience.

“Best views of Pittsburgh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is the place to view Pittsburgh any time. Take an incline ride to get there. Two to choose from in Station Square area. Best spot to see any fireworks display. The sound reverberates off the hills and the colors reflecting off the buildings of glass and on the rivers is like no other place in the world.

“Nice views of Pittsburgh downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Visited during the long weekend...luckily got there early enough for the duquesne incline furnicular - we narrowly missed the long lines which you would expect on any holiday.

It is one of those natural must-do's for pittsburgh.

The views were awesome both during daylight and after. The souvenir shop was not open when we visited. It would also be nice to have a better selection of restaurants / eateries - other than just the high end ones.

From Mount Washington there is a spectacular panorama of Pittsburgh. We were there at sunset and the view was breathtaking!
