My family has visited the Smoky Mountains region around and near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, many times over the years. Each time we visit, we run out of time before we run out of fun. There is ALWAYS something new to discover there…along with many family favorites that we try to visit each time we are in town.
My family fell in love with Pittsburgh during our visit. I loved the bridges and architecture but there were also lots of kid friendly things to do in Pittsburgh too. Click the attraction by each number to learn more.
During our visit to Pittsburgh with Visit Pittsburgh we got to take in the incredible views by land and by water on the Gateway Clipper Pirate Cruise.
On our trip with Visit Pittsburgh, we got to ride the Dusquesne Incline.
I was really excited about this because the city of Cincinnati used to have several inclines but we no longer have any in our city. The city of Pittsburgh still has two that help serve the public transportation needs in the city.
The Duquesne Incline is a working museum. You have history and you have function because people still use it for their everyday public transportation needs.
This view gives you an idea of how steep the grade of the hill is.
The ride is smooth and allows you to take in a different perspective of the city on your way up.
At the top of the incline you can also learn more about the history of the incline.
There is also a self guided tour that shows you the mechanical aspect of the incline.
You can also step outside and take pictures from the observation area.
The views from the observation area showcased the numerous bridges and gorgeous scenery in every direction.
A visit to Dusquesne Incline is an experience that you should add to your list next time you’re in Pittsburgh.
You can find out more about the Duquesne Incline from their website.

Sometimes it’s nice to see the city from a different perspective. Incline Public House in Cincinnati offers it’s patrons a different perspective with its incredible views.
