The incline is nice with all the lights at night, but it did not seem like there was anywhere to go at the bottom. I would say for the $5 it was an experience to have to see the lights, but not much more.

I took a quick trip up the incline and back. It offers wonderful views of Pittsburgh even on a cloudy day. If you have an hour, it's worth doing.

If you are visiting Pittsburgh I would definitely recommend riding one of the inclines. This incline connects the great views of Mt Washington with Station Square. There is parking on both sides of the incline. You can purchase a one way or round trip ticket.

An enjoyable stop when you are in Pittsburgh, however be prepared for long waits, especially if bus trips are stopping. The view can't be beat, and you may see history take place (proposals and the like).

There are a lot of stairs to get to the incline car. The car itself will accommodate a small stroller.
