I always enjoy the trip and the views from the top. We also enjoyed an outdoor meal in a very friendly community at the top of the incline. Stop by the flower shop!

No visit to Pittsburgh would be complete without a ride on this historic funicular railroad. Park at the base of the hill near the river and ride the car to the summit.
