Whenever we had visitors from out of state we always took them to see the City from atop Mt. Washington. There are great restaurants on Shiloh Street like J & Js (a local favorite for breakfast or lunch) and Shiloh Street Grill. Walk Shiloh Street...More

A must-see for visitors and residents alike. Wonderful views of our rivers, many bridges, downtown, and stadiums, fun to ride the incline, too.

We rode the incline up for old times sake. Had dinner at the top then rode back down. That's the way you do it!

Checked this out with some coworkers and it’s a great view of the city. Pittsburgh has a surprising skyline with the two rivers meeting.

A cool neighborhood and a great view of the city. Not much else aside from the view but it's worth it. The area just outside of the viewing area isn't exactly a tourist location

If you want the best view of downtown Pittsburgh, the North Shore, North Side and the South Side all from one vantage point this is the place to go. Grandview Ave has the view but the Mt Washington area also has some excellent bars and...More

If you are in town visiting, you must get to the top of Mt. Washington! It has the best view of the city and it makes you really appreciate the place. Try to get to the top during a fireworks night at PNC Park, because...More

Yes, if you are looking at getting some walking in but not too much it makes sense to drive. Although the price of the Incline was VERY resonanable (under $4.00 round trip). Most hotels offer transportation and the T is free... More
