Features
Family-friendly

If you’re an out-of-towner, set aside some time at sunset to ride up to the Mount Washington overlook on the Monongahela Incline. It’s one of the oldest operating funiculars in America and to ride it up the mountain is to gain a bird’s-eye perspective of the scale of Pittsburgh and its rivers and neighborhoods. The panorama below changes with each season, too. At the bottom of the incline and across the road, you’ll find Station Square, with popular restaurants like the Grand Concourse, as well as shopping, souvenirs, and a Sheraton hotel.
