Historical Monuments in Pittsburgh
Duquesne Incline
(1)
I highly recommend the Duquesne Incline to anyone visiting Pittsburgh. We stopped here on a day trip into the city. You can travel by day or by night. We were able to park our car at the bottom of the entrance. It is a historic tram that transports you from the base of the escarpment up to the top. The red tram is quite iconic - I even bought a Christmas ornament of it there. It is only $2/pp each way to ride. We rode twice - once to the top and once to the bottom. When you reach the top, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city to see the many bridges, skyscrapers, and the view of the water. The station also serves as a museum dedicated to the Duquesne Incline with old photos, its history, and how it affected the city. There is a small gift shop there, too. Definitely recommend this if you travel to Pittsburgh!
