The Duquesne Incline

recommendation by kelly

Built in the late 1880s, the Duquesne Incline was originally used to transport cargo up and down Mount Washington. Rescued and restored in 1963, the cable car has been converted to accommodate tourists and commuters who delight in its scenic route. On a thirty-degree angle and at six mph, the wooden car will smoothly glide you upward while a built-in radio educates you on its past. Once at the top, you’ll find an observation deck that provides and amazing, panoramic view of Pittsburgh.
