Pittsburgh, Pennyslvania: Monongahela Incline
You go to Pittsburgh, you have to ride one of the inclines. It's a must.
If only to take a picture like this.
There are two inclines serving Pittsburgh, both offering great views of the city. This one has been around since 1869, and it's the oldest and steepest incline in the country. Besides, it's an easy way for residents to get down the hill that surrounds Pittsburgh -- not as fast as rolling down the hill, but a bit more practical -- and hop on the light-rail transit system.
