The View From Mount Washington

A visit to Pittsburgh is not complete without a trip up Mount Washington to drink in the city’s spectacular skyline. You can get there by car or by one of two historic inclines.

It was dark after we devoured ice cream at Klavon’s so we drove to this point high above the city. Pittsburgh has a vibrant night life and the city was especially booming since the Pirates were playing Toronto that night.

We parked the car and walked around a bit, people watching along the way. I always pause a moment to appreciate St. Mary of the Mount Catholic Church. A few years ago, I had a special experience at this church and it consequently holds a special place in my heart.

Street parking is limited atop Mount Washington so you may consider parking below and taking an incline ride to the top if you’re there during business hours. It’s a fun experience and worth the cost of a ticket. Also, Mount Washington is an amazing place to watch the sunrise so be sure to do that too!
