On the banks of the mighty Ohio River sits Cincinnati, one of the Midwest's most picturesque cities. Known for its delicious chili, love of baseball, and easygoing nature, Cincinnati welcomes visitors with open arms. A blend of Northeast, Midwest, and Old South cultures, there's truly nowhere else like the Queen City.
There's so much to see here. History lovers should check out the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the William Howard Taft National Historic Site. Also, visiting landmarks like the gorgeous Union Terminal, the Carew Tower and Observation Deck, the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, and Fountain Square offer a window into the past and present of the Queen City.
Cincinnati is a sports town, and going to a Reds baseball game (April through September) or a Bengals football game (September through December) is a blast. Book lodging in downtown Cincinnati if you plan to attend. Animal lovers and adventure seekers should enjoy other attractions like the highly-rated Cincinnati Zoo, King's Island, and the Newport Aquarium. You can find deals on many Cincinnati hotels nearby to be right in the middle of the action.
