“Photoframe Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Perfect views of Pittsburgh from here.

Sad we ended up going there when it snowed today.

Otherwise, its the perfect picture shot. There are extended observation platforms which help enhance the views.

Maybe the city council to set up some telescopes on the observatory too, and when they do it, they should pay me and Tripadvisor for this idea.

“Must visit place when in Pittsburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

This is the place to visit when you want a truly striking view of the Pittsburgh skyline. Make sure to go when the weather is decent and you will really get an impressive view. There are also some nice restaurants up ther.

“Beautiful view of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
