The view from Mount Washington was amazing. You can see the entire city with views of Heinz Field. The ride on the incline railway was a great experience and was very reasonably priced.

If you are planning on using the subways or busses, you can buy a day pass at the machine, also. It was $7 last time I went and you can ride the inclines and busses and subways all you want that day. You will love the... More
