“Awesome View”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Go at night and see PIttsburgh all lit up! There are plenty of places to park, and small look out terraces you can enjoy the view from. Bring a sweater as it gets chilly up there at night even in the middle of summer.

“Amazing view”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This is an absolutely amazing view.
It is very nice during the day but my advice is for you to go during the night as the view of the city is really amazing.

“Great Views”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We made the mistake of trying to drive from downtown up to Mount Washington during rush hour and we had a little bit of adventure trying to find the viewing platforms, but once we found them it was worth it. The views of the city are great from up there and you can see all of downtown and the sports stadiums. The viewing platforms are a great place to photograph the city and the rivers.

“one of the Greatest views of any city you will ever see.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

If you want to see a breathtaking view of Pittsburgh, then going to the top of Mt. Washington is highly recommended. Ive been to a lot of places, but this by far is the most scenic view I have ever witnessed. You cant help but take a lot of pictures. The city skyline is gorgeous, the rivers connecting, the bridges... breathtaking views. Take the Monengohela incline to the top and enjoy Pittsburgh from a fantastic viewpoint.

Bring your walking shoes, took one incline up then walked across the mountain and took the other incline down. Great looking houses and the view is breathtaking. $2.50 per person each way, exact change only!!
