Built to remove citizens from Johnstown in case of a flood, this is the world's steepest vehicular inclined plane.
This is a real gem- built in 1890 and still operating (with some restoration) in the same original form. The view is great. The ride is unique. If you've already visited the Flood Museum, or Flood National Memorial, the view from the top of Yoder Hill offers a good panorama of Johnstown and the valley that was overwhelmed by the flood. Another good reason to take the ride is the reasonable cost, and the knowledge that the Incline Plane is operated as a non-profit by the Cambria County Transit Authority, and the fare will help them keep this gem operating. If you want to go crazy, you can take your car up to the top with you, and drive around the Westmont neighborhood. Or, if you are a mountain biker, take your bike up, and ride down on the mountain biking trail (no beginners please! See "Friends of the Inclined Plane Trails" on Facebook) There is a snack bar and souvenir shop at the top, and a separate restaurant, Asiago's.

On May 31, 1889, a neglected dam and a phenomenal storm led to a catastrophe in which 2,209 people died. It’s a story of great tragedy, but also of triumphant recovery. Visit the Johnstown Flood Museum, which is operated by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association, to find out more about this shocking episode in American history. It features an Academy Award-winning documentary, artifacts, exhibits and more.
Fascinating back story to the flood that killed more than 2,200 people. Wish it actually had even more on display (especially about the flood of 1977) but what it does offer is a detailed look at the events leading up to, the day of and the recovery from the flood of 1889 that left 27,000 people homeless and killed thousands. Informative displays and a good place to visit ahead of the National Park dedicated to the flood.

B & L Wine Cellars is a small urban winery featuring wines made from Pennsylvania grapes and some fruit from other areas. We have live music every Sunday.
I have visited B&L Wine Cellar on several occasions. The wine is awesome and the owners and staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. They have a nice selection of inexpensive wines from PA. I also like that they offer wines that are special to the area. For example, during Thunder in the Valley they offered a special wine for that event. I am currently working on hosting an event here for about 30 to 40 people. In addition to the Wine Tasting they will be providing cheese platters. If you get the chance to visit this winery I would add it to your lsit.
