Mount Washington, Pittsburgh

4.8
Mount Washington features a sprawling urban vista, two of the oldest funiculars in the world, and a row of fine-dining restaurants. The neighborhood is a business district and a forested hiking spot at the same time. Take advantage of its geographical position and photograph the skyline from one of four overview decks. The area is accessible by car, but it's more fun to use the 1870 and 1877 lifts to get up and down the mountain. At the top station, you can learn about their history.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
