We were newbies at escape rooms. I never even heard of it until I saw it on Trip Advisor the same morning we booked. The staff member was patient with us even though we had no clue what we were doing. The room design was very well done, and the puzzles were very challenging. We didn’t escape successfully, but it was a fun experience. Good way to spend quality time with your teenagers.

I've been a library kinda guy since I was a little kid. This branch of the Kenton County Public Library is superb. There's tons of free parking, an abundance of staff, copy services, computer access and a plethora of books, videos, and music. I recommend this for doing research online or just plain escaping from the outside world into a book.

The Ky. Bourbon Trail(promotional organization) has added a B-line or secondary tour of micro or boutique distilleries to their line-up - this is one(as is New Riff in Newport). True, as the one "poor" comment indicated, it is a warehouse(new building) with a still and...MoreThanks for coming to see us bassbum! We appreciate your review and kind words.

St Mary's Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption

Reviewed By Aunt P

The Cathedral is beautiful. Great place to visit and worship. Was able to go to Confession while in town several months ago. The priest homily was great. Highly recommend you go visit and spend some time with God while in town, even in you are not Catholic.

This park has a lot of family activites, a great view of the river and is close to the ballpark and many restruants. If you are in town to watch the Reds, I highly recommend checking out this park.

I went to Vent Haven believing that it would be a creepy and odd experience. Not at all! It was very interesting and our guide was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. Her passion was contagious, making you want to participate and leave with a new appreciation for this under appreciated art.

This antique mall is quite large and always has interesting hard-to-find items tucked in here and there. All merchandise is in good shape, and most prices are reasonable. It's one of the best antique malls in the Greater Cincinnati area. Plus easy parking!

Putt Putt Family Fun Center

Reviewed By Beauregard70 - Fort Thomas, Kentucky

This is not fancy mini golf! It looks like it was originally built in the 1970's and all they have done for maintenance over the years is put on a yearly fresh coat of paint and replace the light bulbs.

They have speakers playing background music throughout the course with probably the original soundtrack from when they opened.

That being said, this was an awesome experience. Very friendly staff, very happy and friendly patrons, and a very nostalgic vibe. We would go back!

Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption

A gothic cathedral that has a design similar to Notre Dame in Paris.

Reviewed By Jonathan K - Cincinnati, Ohio

It's quite startling to discover a European-style cathedral in an unassuming spot in Covington, Kentucky. The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption can't compete with places like the Cathedral of Saint Louis in Saint Louis, or the National Cathedral in Washington. But its definitely a place that everyone in the Cincinnati area should visit. Just wandering around in the cathedral is overwhelming. A guided tour helps to appreciate the incredible level of detail.

Florence Freedom

Reviewed By DebErlanger - Erlanger, Kentucky

Going to a Florence Freedom game will demonstrate how baseball became such a popular sport in the U.S. I don't like sitting among the clouds in a big stadium and spending an entire week's worth of spending money on snacks for the family. But minor league baseball is another thing. When you yell at the batter or pitcher, they can hear you -- because you can sit that close. Prices are great, and special evening events have additional deals to enjoy. The management caters to children with activities for them to participate in between innings. Plus there is a large playground for them to enjoy when they've been sitting for too long.

It's great baseball in a great atmosphere at a great price. If you haven't tried it, order tickets now. Or jump in the car; tickets are always available at the gate.
