How to get there

Mt. Washington is located on the southwestern bank of the Monongahela River, its hilltop granting full views of the city. Sitting about the Wabash Tunnel, locals either access it via PA Route 51, or from the Monongahela Incline. The funicular is a convenient access point, as it’s an affordable option connecting the Fagan Overlook in Mt. Washington to the popular Station Square shopping mall along the riverside below.

When to get there

Mt. Washington may be a residential neighborhood, but the bars and restaurants aren’t closing up shop early. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night eats are all available so it’s effortless to plan a mealtime visit. The views of the city are lovely both day and night, but as the moon gets higher, the overlook can feel rather desolate for lonesome visitors.

How to navigate the Incline

A ride on the Monongahela or adjacent Duquesne Inclines is a favorite activity of locals, with many city tours including a ride up to Mt. Washington. The former accepts credit cards while the latter is exact cash only. Paid parking is available at both Station Square and Grandview Avenue. It’s a great experience for young and old looking for an iconic photo opp and a nice meal at a local Pittsburgh restaurant.
