Mount Washington, Pittsburgh

(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Mount Washington to your Pittsburgh travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Pittsburgh trip itinerary planner.
