You hold a special reverence in your heart for inspiring tales of athleticism. The will and might of an underdog gives you chills and inspires you to continue reaching higher. Sometimes, after watching “Field of Dreams,” you have your own visions of heroically building a mecca for sports from the ground up. If you build an epic dodgeball field, they will come—you just know it. Not everyone understands your passion for ping-pong or fanaticism for football. But people in Cincinnati do.
Yes, given your devotion for all things sporty, arriving in Cincy will feel just like coming home. You’ll convince the less sports-obsessed members of your travel group to tag along by waxing poetic about Cincitucky’s thriving theater scene and the exciting attractions at Fountain Square. And they won’t be disappointed. Thanks to Cincinnati downtown hotels, including the aptly-named Cincinnatian Hotel, you never have to stay far from the best things to do.
When is the Cincinnati Reds’ opening day?
Opening day for the Cincinnati Reds baseball team is practically a city-wide holiday. Falling in early April (in 2016, the first game was April 4th, for instance), opening day for the Reds has traditionally signaled opening day for the MLB. That means it’s a big deal. A very big deal. As you take in a healthy dose of salty air, a sure sign that peanuts and stadium pretzels aren’t far, you’ll be overwhelmed by the excitement of fellow fans. Stay at one of the top downtown Cincinnati hotels, and you’ll have the perfect home base from which to watch the festive parade and other celebrations.
What are some quintessentially Cincinnati places to eat?
Funny you should ask. Your taste buds will go on a culinary journey in Cincinnati. A few of the dishes you must try while you’re in Cincy include Skyline chili, Graeter’s ice cream, and a grilled cheese donut from Tom and Chee. In the fall, the aroma of hops and sight of slightly off-kilter gentlemen in suspenders signals the beginning of Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. Let the salt of a soft pretzel melt on your lips, then wash it down with a stein of beer. You’ll feel like you’re in Munich, but you’ve never stepped out of Cincy. Book a stay at a centrally located hotel, such as the Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel, you’re only a few stumbles away from your comfortable bed.
