Driving through the Fort Pitt Tunnel, the view of Pittsburgh is one to behold. Up on Mount Washington, the views are spectacular. The three rivers--the O, the A, and the Mon--can all be seen. Parking can be tight; so, be prepared to feed the parking meter.

Absolutely stunning view! A must see. I was advised to go up to see the view a little before sunset to get the daytime view. Then I went to eat to kill some time, when I was done with dinner I got to see the beautiful night view. So nice. Would highly recommend seeing both daytime/nighttime views!

Great place to get the view of the city. Drive up, or better yet, ride the incline. Many great places to eat up here too, just bring your extra wallet. But worth every penny.

You don't want to miss the experience of riding the incline up Mt. Washington and then viewing the City. It has to be one of the best Pittsburgh experiences. Once at the top you can walk along Grandview and get fabulousl panoramic views of Pittsburgh across the river. If you're up for a mile walk you can then reverse your... More

Spectacular view of downtown Pittsburgh! Take an incline ride up & down the hillside! Some great restaurants and bars, redbeards has an open jam session. St. Mary of the mount is a beautiful church.

The view from here was stunning. We went a little later in the day(around 5 pm) so it wasn't crowded.
