Road Trip from Pittsburg - Winchester VA - Morgantown W VA

Road Trip from Pittsburg - Winchester VA - Morgantown W VA

About six weeks ago, I was bidding on Priceline for a Saturday night hotel room in the Winchester/Front Royal/Strasburg zones. After a few bid rejections, my $41 bid ($52.84 after taxes and fees) was accepted by the Strasburg Fairfield.

Since I’d never been to Strasburg before, I did a Google search for Strasburg restaurant reviews.

Christina's Cafe in Strasburg, located off I-81 about a mile south of the junction of I-68 and I-81, appeared to be the best prospect. Excellent food and ambiance!

What the XXXX....'Big Mouth Kee' - Richmond Hill's top-Ranked Chinese Eatery!!!! [moved from Ontario]


You incorrectly moved this thread from the Ontario, Canada forum to the Mid-Atlantic foum.

Richmond Hill (population 190,000) is located just north of Toronto, Ontario.

Katj, I suppose you don't realize that the Sun and the whole Universe revolve around Atlanta. That's why the OP didn't bother identifying the location the either the heading or the body of the post.

Week in Pittsburgh, No Car

You might want to consider buying one-week transit passes:
One big bonus is that you can use the weekly pass on both inclines without paying an additional fare.
Here’s a link for transit pass sales outlets:

After you have obtained your transit pass, plan a late lunch after 1:30 p.m. so that you can get a window table at one of the Duquesne Heights restaurants.

Directions: From Station Square, walk across Carson Street and take the Monongahela Incline to the top of Mt. Washington. Walk slightly less than a mile along Grandview Avenue to the restaurants in Duquesne Heights. Your walk will be mostly level, passing two or three observation decks along the way.

Here are some Duquesne Heights restaurants/website links:
LeMont, 1114 Grandview Ave.
Tin Angel, 1200 Grandview Ave.
Bella Vista Ristorante Italiano, 1204 Grandview Ave.
Cliffside Restaurant, 1208 Grandview Ave.
Coal Hill Steak House at the Grandview Saloon, 1212 Grandview Ave.
City Lights Café, 1216 Grandview Ave.
Georgetowne Inn , 1230 Grandview Ave.
Isabela on Grandview Restaurant, 1318 Grandview Ave.
Monterey Bay Fish Grotto, 1411 Grandview Ave.

After lunch, ride down the Duquesne Incline and, at the base, take any inbound bus one stop to Gateway Center, Downtown. From there, walk along Liberty Avenue less than a quarter-mile to the subway plaza at Wood Street. From there, take the subway from Wood Street Station three stops back to Station Square.
