It was great going up the incline. You can see Pittsburgh real good and Mount Washington is a great place to eat and shop.

What an amazing view of the City once you reach the top of the Incline. The area prior to going to the observation decks is amazing. There is so much information.

I spent much of my childhood and early teens in Pittsburgh and the incline was always the first place we took visitors to our Steel City. Its appealing to all ages and is an interesting experience as well as a beautiful view when you get to the top of Mt. Washington. There are plaques and signs with a little bit... More

The view is beautiful. However, there isn't much at the top. I'm glad we did it (for the novelty of it).

Duquesne I, Manager at Duquesne Incline, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your comments about your experience on the Duquesne Incline. At the very least we want visitors to enjoy the ride and understand that the vehicles are pieces of history - 138 years old and in original condition. The cars were among the first mechanical forms of mass transportation, powered by a steam engine when people... More

The Duquesne Incline in Pittsburgh is one of only two left in the city and it's worth your time to visit. It's inexpensive, educational, and very fun. And the views.......priceless. Don't miss it.

What can you not like about this time honored Pittsburgh attraction? While many tourists visit, this is a functional way of life for many people who travel from the Mount down to the river. The view at night is exceptional!

We had a nice time, the trip up seemed like a slice out of time, and the view at the top was remarkable. Be prepared with exact change, and enjoy the slow pace.

A part of Pittsburgh's History, and a must see for all first time visitors. Aside from the great memorabilia collected over the years, the Incline provides a "one in a million" - view every time you take it. The Three Rivers of Pittsburgh are the tip of the (golden) triangle, that lays out the city skyline 24/7! This is a... More
