Loved taking the afternoon to sit and watch over the city! Beautiful views and lovely way to escape the hustle and bustle!

While the incline is probably fun, just driving up and taking a walk on end near the Mt Washington incline gives spectacular views of this incredibly beautiful building.

Mount Washington is located beside the Duquesne Incline - cable car that goes up and down the steep hill. It provides a great view of Pittsburgh even on a foggy day. It provides a nice aerial view of the city. There is not much else in the area though, but this is not very far from downtown Pittsburgh so it is worth the drive as suggested by fellow travelers.

Spectacular views of the city. Unfortunately, the restaurants on the hill are rather lackluster. The ones with the views offer just that at a premium price. Food and service are not high on their list. The restaurants back from the hill are fairly mundane but at least local as opposed to the chains offered in Station Square at the bottom of the hill.

We enjoyed the great view of Pittsburgh with ease from the viewing platform. If it's a clear day you just look in awe at the tall buildings and it is a reminder of how clean the downtown area is. The rivers merge here, the bridges span their flowing waterways.
