Family Trip to Pittsburgh via Megabus

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

We recently went on a family trip to Pittsburgh by taking the Megabus. It was a great time, although lots of walking and carrying kids and backpacks…but hey, that’s exercise, right?!

I wrote up a review of everything we did for Columbus Underground. Here’s an excerpt:

We walked across the Fort Pitt Bridge to take a ride on the Duquesne Incline. For only being $4.50 round trip per adult (our kids were free since they are under five), it was a great excursion for us and our little train enthusiast. If we had been sans kids, there are several very romantic restaurants at the top of the incline to dine. The Duquesne buildings offer lots of historical information to read and the views of the city are amazing. We went at about 5:30 in the evening, but I’m sure the views would be equally stunning later in the evening when the city is all lit up. For people who are walking, the Duquesne Incline is a bit of a hike from downtown (about 35 minutes each way) and some of the sidewalk is missing the curbs, making it very close to the road.
