You get a great view of the city from the Monogahela River side. It's worth going up in the day and at night. You can see more in the day but the night lights are spectacular too. There are several ways to drive up to the overlook or you can take one of the 2 inclines up. The incline is fun if you've never ridden one. There is plenty of metered parking available too.

Mt Washington is a fabulous spot to not only see the cities sky's cape but to try one of the many great bars and restaurants. Take the incline up and stay awhile. Get a latte or pastry at the bakery too.

We rode the incline up, walked and took in the beautiful views, stopped by a bar and took the incline back down. Certainly worth the time and great exercise.

Point of View Park atop Mount Washington is one of the best city skyline views anywhere. You see the merging of the famous rivers, the multiple bridges including the "three sisters", the downtown skyscrapers on one side, the sports stadiums on the other. We shot a lot of pictures from up here as were several other people. Please don't over look James A. West's sculpture of Seneca leader Guyasuta sitting down with George Washington. And it's all FREE!

This is a great place to check out Pittsburgh from above. I wish we would have had time to take the incline up, but we just pulled over to take some pictures and just take in the whole city. It truly is a beautiful view.
