It is no coincidence that Cincinnati has come to be known as the “Pearl of the West”. The city lies in the wide basin on the north of the Ohio River, surrounded by hills. Besides the beautiful location, Cincinnati bubbles with unique culture and character. Here are a few spots you shouldn’t miss when visiting Cincinnati.
Smale Riverfront Park
Smale Riverfront Park connects downtown Cincinnati with the Ohio River. It is attached to the bustling food district The Banks, making it the perfect fusion of calm nature surroundings and a bubbly city atmosphere.
Great American Ball Park
Cincinnati is known as a baseball city, and the Great American Ball Park, home to the Cincinnati Reds, is a must-see. The season starts in April with a massive opening-day parade and outdoor festival.
Findlay Market boasts more than 50 full-time stalls in its enclosed and open-air space. Local vendors sell everything from an amazing array of foods to homemade soaps and beeswax candles.
Brewing Heritage Trail
The Brewing Heritage Trail follows in the footsteps of Cincinnati’s early German settlers, and it’s one of the best ways to learn about and experience the city’s history. Beneath the trail, there is a maze of former beer cellars, which you can visit.
