When I was a child this was transportation not recreation. We used it to get to downtown PGH. Now each time I am back or have visitors we have to make this trip. It is clean, freshly painted and has a view of the most beautiful city in America. When you get to the bottom check out Staton Square and... More

This was a neat stop on my brief trip to Pittsburgh. The view is great from the top of the incline. The cable cars are old and beautiful. You do need exact change cash for this. The ride doesn't take long, but is worth the time.

I may like this view even more than the Monogahela Inclines! When you get to the top there is a great overlook and some great restaurant choices!

This is one of those "Pittsburgh" things to do. It was a lot of fun. A good family experience and amazing views of the city.

Great historical experience! Doesn't take long, but is a definite MUST when visiting the city! Don't forget the 2nd incline as well!

If you've never done this before, the Incline is a must do in Pgh. The views are impressive, and there's a little history at the top. Exact $ payment is needed so bring some cash. They have a bill breaker that give Dollar COINs for change if needed.
