We jumped off our bus tour to take advantage of this gem. Price is so inexpensive how can you not go. Your view going up in your view at the top is like no other. Great way to see Pittsburgh. I would highly recommend.

You have to go to the observation deck on the top & look over the city. Fabulous view! Neat to go inside & look at all the old pics & history of this incline. Really a neat place to stop in.

The views from Mount Washington aren't thi be missed. The history of the incline and its use over the years is very interesting. There are only 2 of these left so when in Pittsburg be sure to include this experience.
