This is Pittsburgh. This is both historical and fun especially in the evening when the town light's up. Viewing Pittsburgh from mt. Washington is spectacular

We were spending our first time in Pittsburgh and decided to take in a local attraction. This was well worth the time as the view was sensational. Able to see downtown Pittsburgh clearly which was even better than expected.

The Incline has been a part of Pittsburgh history for years. Have to ride it if you're in the burgh. Have never seen anything like it anywhere before. Great views.

Excellent to see. It's like it's still 1908! Excellent views when you get to the top and lots to do.

This is a bargain at $3.50 round trip. The views are amazing. Worth the trip! I visited the 1900 library and grabbed a coffee. You can walk up the hill to capture the views.

With a great view of the city and "the Point" or the confluence of the 3 Rivers, the Duquesne incline is one of the must-see destinations when in town to visit Pittsburgh. The old charm of the incline itself and the great pictures and articles...More

It is an easy trip up the incline to see a great view of Pittsburgh. I would definitely stress that you need exact cash (3 dollars) to do the trip. No cards, you won't get change back.

The Monongehela Incline is close to Station Square--also great. Goes to an outdoor viewing platform. The Duquesne Incline has a parking lot at the bottom on West Carson St.

We parked in the shopping center parking lot. It was very convenient. I don't remember that the parking cost very much. Hope that helps.

It's mostly residential at the top, and my recollection is that parking might be limited. Park in the lot at the bottom, ride up, exit the station and turn to your right. Walk about a quarter mile and there is a phenomenal... More
