While I've always enjoyed traveling, the past year was the first that I embraced travel as a passion and looked at every step beyond my front door from a travel writer's perspective.

Whether you're in Pittsburgh for a few days or a few hours, the Duquesne Incline is a great pit-stop on any road trip. The Duquesne Incline is a cable car that transports people to the top of Mount Washington. Restored in 1963, the Incline features original hoisting gear and cable cars that date back to the late 1800's.
I wholeheartedly recommend a trip to the Erie Canal and a ride through a working lock. There’s so much history in upstate New York!
