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.

Smale Riverfront Park

Reviewed By James Z - Lethbridge, Canada

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.

Vent Haven Museum

Reviewed By Angela W

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.

The Party Source

Reviewed By James Z - Lethbridge, Canada

Stopped in here while in Cincinnati and it was well worth crossing the river for. This is the largest liquor store in the USA. After a while if you get tired of looking at beer on the shelf you can go to the live brewery and get a pint of freshly made beer. A must see for anyone visiting the Cincinnati and area.

Newport Southbank Bridge a.k.a. Purple People Bridge

This bridge connects connects Cincinnati, OH to Newport, KY and passes over the Ohio River.

Reviewed By Dan M - Des Moines, Iowa

The weather was perfect and the purple bridge offered a great opportunity to walk and enjoy the scenery or jog to burn off some energy. The crossing is long enough to feel like you've accomplished something, but it can be as easy as you would like. A fun place to view downtown Cincy and the river. And with Newport shops on one end, a dinner or drink is always close by.

Reviewed By NKyAdventurer - Cincinnati Ohio

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.

Newport Aquarium

Rated #1 U.S. Aquarium by Readers’ Choice Travel Awards and #1 Aquarium in the Midwest by Zagat Survey. Home to thousands of aquatic animals in scores of exhibits, the Newport Aquarium will amaze you with all there is to see and do. You can touch a penguin, pet a shark, hear divers talk to the audience during feeding time, play games in Frog Bog, eat lunch in Sharkey's Cafe and a much, much more!

Reviewed By Maryann L - Cincinnati, Ohio

We visit the Newport Aquarium several times a year. (Helpful hint: If you live close by, invest in an annual pass. It is well worth the money). The best part for us is always walking in the tunnel with the sharks and other fish swimming above, below and on the sides of you. We never get tired of that experience!! We also always sit for a few minutes watching the penguins. You can touch a shark or a stingray and the employees assigned to these areas are very knowledgeable. If you're feeling brave, be sure to walk on the Shark Bridge!! A good time to visit is in the mid-afternoon. We usually go about 3:00 and it isn't crowded and you can take your time looking at the exhibits.

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.

Cincinnati Art Museum

One of the most prestigious art museums in the country, with over 100,000 works of art, this grandiose building atop an Eden Park hill, is well-known for its 19th-century European and American paintings, but also contains numerous other works including an outstanding pottery gallery.

Reviewed By Rosemary K - Newport, Kentucky

Checking local points of interest off slowly since we retired to Kentucky, a rainy Tuesday took us the the Cincinnati Art Museum. I have since then returned twice. Who knew??? This museum is huge!~ and has some fabulous collections. There are also often special exhibits. The Albrecht Durer exhibit drew us in. In my excitement, I grabbed a neighbor and returned to share our discovery and to have lunch in the cafe. The cafe was more than I had anticipated. From the outside, it almost resembles a cafeteria. The dining experience itself, anything but that. The food~delicious and the menu had a great variety of choices. Did I mention they also serve beer and wine? Definitely go. There is NO CHARGE! (for the museum)
