My trip to Michigan is finally here!!! I'm excited because I get to visit 3 states that I've never been to before: Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. This morning I went by Enterprise to pick up my rental. I got a Nissan Versa, not bad for a small economy car. I said my goodbyes to Josh, and after a few tears, I got on the road towards Pittsburgh. It took about 4 hours from Manassas to get there. I didn't have much time because I wanted to make it to Ohio before dark, so I wanted to do something where I could see great views of the city. I decided to see the Duquesne Incline, which is a tram that takes you to the top of a hill for a great view of the city, AND it only cost $5!!! This is a definite must-see when coming to Pittsburgh. I parked in Square Station A (a little hard to find, I missed the turn twice!) I took the tram up and the views were amazing! Definitely great photo-opps from up here.

I left Pittsburgh and drove to Akron, Ohio (which is only about 2 hours away). Akron is definitely not my cup of tea. It's a little run-down and there were weird people walking around. I got here around 8pm so there wasn't anything going on. I saw one nice church and got a few photos and then left.

From here, I drove towards Cleveland. I stayed at the Howard Johnson in Brook Park, Ohio.
