    The inclines are highly recommended. Buy a day pass, take the bus to the Duquesne, ride up, enjoy the view, walk to the Monongahela, ride down, and take the light rail back downtown.

    When visiting the Duquesne Incline, don't forget about the machine room. As of little over a year ago, one can observe it and the cables from a balcony. Look for the turnstile, which costs 50 cents to enter. It's nestled in the corner and not incredibly overt.

    It is safe here in Pittsburgh like any other big city depends on what area you're in. We have a lot of nice attractions and good restaurants. The only big issue we have is the homeless people downtown not too far from the train station.

    The Andy Warhol Museum is worth a visit. I'm not a modern art fan, but even a philistine like I am can enjoy this museum--it's very well laid out and has a good cafe, for afters!
