It was fun to ride the inclines that I'd seen in movies. Thanks to our hotel concierge, we rode the other incline up--found great lunch options then walked to the this incline and rode down--great views. Westin shuttle dropped us off and came back for us! Thanks to the few shuttle and the cheap fares of the inclines--it was an... More

This is a great way to get to Mount Washington. The real car appears to be mostly original to the time. The ride is smooth and relatively quick. People can take bikes along with but it is recommended that only one bike go up per car. A round trip, one's own ticket runs about $4.25. This allows you to go... More

Fun to take a nostalgic ride up and down Once up, walk around Mt Washington and see the sites. Pittsburgh is most beautiful at night.

The view of the City was fabulous. Observation area was nice. Not rushed and took our time taking in views.

Several hours and you can learn much history about the roots of Pittsburgh. Pictures of the early days are plentiful and depict the creation of what was once the the largest steel making city in the world. A must visit for any history buff. Be sure to ask about the how the ghost story lead to the success of the... More

Definitely a "must do" for anyone planning a trip to Pittsburgh. Just make sure to have exact change and watch how long you spend on Mt Washington. There is a 3 hour time limit for the tickets you buy and they mean it!

The area is a nice place to take pictures of the cityscape. However, the incline route is very short, so it may not be worth your time or fare.

It's historic, but it still serves a purpose. Fares are akin to what one pays for a bus or light rail ride, with the fare integrated with the bus trip necessary to get to & from the foot of the Incline.

Don't miss this chance for a quick ride up to the ridge where you can stroll along the million-dollar-houses overlooking the whole city of Pittsburgh. Perfect any time of day, and treat yourself to an ice cream at the top. If you are afraid of heights, sit with your back to the downhill side and you'll have no problems at... More

This is a short but good cable car ride. It is $3.50 round trip if you return within 3 hrs or $2.50 each way if are longer. You pay at the top. It is the way to go to Mt. Washington.
