The best view in Pittsburgh, PA

The go-to spot in Pittsburgh. You can get to the top of Mount Washington by driving up the mountain (about 10 minutes) or by taking either the Duquesne Incline or the Monongahela Incline for a couple dollars. Duquesne is the more popular of the two but I would say it's worth it. 

Most people come here for sunset but if you want to have the view all to yourself and friends or family, I would go at sunrise. Have fun!
