My Day In Cincinnati, OH

Cincinnati is the third-largest city in Ohio. It boasts a rich nightlife, excellent restaurants, and plenty of exciting things to do no matter your age or tastes.

The city’s Zoo and Botanical Garden is perfect if you have young children. Home of internet sensation Fiona the baby hippo, the zoo also organizes the annual PNC Festival of Lights that throughout the holidays, from November 18 to January 1st.

For baseball fans, the Great American Ballpark can’t be missed. You can catch a Cincinnati Reds game during baseball season, or simply tour the stadium to learn more about the sport’s first professional franchise.

Foodies can dive into the local cuisine. The infamous Graeter’s Ice Cream company was born here, and with 145 years of ice cream expertise, you’re sure to find the perfect flavor. They make annual releases such as the Thanksgiving classic cinnamon flavor, and March has a “mystery” flavor for customers to discover. Meanwhile, locals know that for chili, the Skyline restaurants are the only way to go.

The Cincinnati Art Museum is one of the oldest art museums in the States. Its collection features works by Picasso, Renoir, and Monet. Not only does the museum have extensive galleries, but they also run several other cultural events. These programs have included “Wee Wednesdays” for preschoolers, public tours for visitors of all ages, and conversations with exhibition designers and artists.

Wind down your day with a relaxing stroll around Fountain Square. The square’s central location, right in downtown, makes it the ideal place to experience true Cincinnati culture. In the holiday season, there are ice skating shows and Christmas markets. There are also several top-rated restaurants nearby, such as the American-style steakhouse Morton’s or the cozy Italian place Via Vite that doubles as a bar from Happy Hour onward.
