The incline is a neat tourist attraction --and not to be missed. I was with my 30-year old son and he was amazed and delighted with it. The only negative for me is - I walk with a cane and its a lot of steps...More

We loved getting on the incline, walking around Mount Washington, having dinner at Vue412, and taking the trolley back down. Beautiful and well kept!

Nearly every visitor to Pittsburgh takes this ride. It’s an old tram that takes you to a high point above the heart of the city. It will cost $5 to park, and $5 per person to take the ride. The hill is very steep...around 1100...More

This incline is 104 years old and still running well. The ride is not long but pretty exciting. Station Square is a nice area

The view of the city is amazing at the top! Again so much history and even more shops and places to visit once you reach the top!

Very unique experience and the night view is especially beautiful! You have to purchase tickets through the machines in the stations. Credit, debit or the exact cash amount are needed. There are paid parking lots all around.

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
