“A beautiful view of Pittsburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

The observation decks on Mount Washington give you a birds eye view of Pittsburgh 'The city of steel'. On a pleasant day, you can see the tall and beautiful skyscrapers, the merging of the two rivers and the bridges. This place is accessible by road and has lots of things to do other than just the view. Moreover, its just few minutes drive from Downtown, so if you are planning on staying in Pittsburgh for not more than few hours, you can visit this place. On busy days, finding a parking spot can be difficult.

Final verdict: A "MUST DO", lovely view of the city, easily accessible, other fun things to do there.

“Don't miss this view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

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.

“Good View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

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.
