If you only have time for one thing, do this. It is absolutely magnificent, the view, a sight you will never forget. I have lived here most of my life and am still awestruck by it!

Whether a family adventure or a romantic evening, any first visit to Pittsburgh has to include taking one of the historic inclines up to Mount Washington for stunning views of the city. There are two inclines, depends largely on meal plans. One incline is close to the bustling Station Square at the bottom, but not as much action other than the views at the top. The other incline has a bit of a desolate parking area at the bottom, but has several high-end restaurants at the top with awesome views. Follow my lead and propose to your future bride from one of the overlooks.

Any visit to Pittsburgh must include a ride up the incline for the breathtaking view of the city. Check out the fountain at Point State Park, the three rivers, all of the bridges, and the beautiful architecture of the buildings. Wonderful photo ops.

I absolutely love the view of the city from Mt. Washington at night. If you're visiting the city, take the Monongahela Incline up to Mt. Washington from Station Square and walk along Grandview Avenue. Big selection of restaurants and pubs on Grandview Avenue or Shiloh Street.

Riding an incline or driving up to Mt. Washington is a must for anyone visiting Pittsburgh, especially for the first time. The views are outstanding of the city along with the rivers and bridges. Pittsburgh is a rather compact city and the best overall views are from Mt. Washington. Several large observation platforms make for unobstructed views.
