We had an interesting time at the duquesne incline. It's so historic and the whole ration is filled with photos and memorabilia. We got an awesome Christmas ornament made from steel there.

It was our first trip to Pittsburgh, and someone had mentioned that we should ride an Incline. It cost $5 to park and the trip was $20 for 4 of us. The view from the top is amazing and WOW are you up high! I am not a fan of heights, but really enjoyed the experience.

Our team was in town for a hockey tournament, and coaches decided to take a team picture at the top. Stunning views from the top. Only bad thing was rude ticketing staff.

Our first time in a cable car and it won't be our last. I love this mode of transport and the views as you're going up are spectacular. I would definitely recommend this. We went up during the day and I would like to have seen it at night.

This was a very cool thing to do while in the area! Very nerve wracking for me as I'm scared to death of heights but it all turned out ok!

Go see the city. It's cheap, it's fun, and there's no better view without wings. A must visit in Pittsburgh.

We were told to go up via rail car at night and see all the city lights. Highly worth it. Once at the top there are some restaurants with great views! Fun to see.
