Ride the Duquesne Incline
For unbeatable views of Pittsburgh, as well as access the stylish Mount Washington neighbourhood, take a ride on the Duquesne Incline. Opened in 1877, it was restored by a local collective in the late 1960s and still features the two original wooden cable cars. It runs 365 days a year between the Lower and Upper Stations, the latter of which has an observation deck with views across the city and a museum exploring the history of Pittsburgh and the incline itself. Visitors can also watch the incline’s machinery operate while the cars are in motion.
