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

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.

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.

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.

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!
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.

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

Craft Distillery and Event Center in Cincinnati, Kentucky. Specializing in Kentucky Bourbon and Rye Whiskey. Knowledge, Ambition and Absolute Drive for Quality- these are the hallmarks of New Riff. Everything you see, taste, learn and experience reflects our dedication to delivering only the best, and proves we don't hold anything back. This is our passion and vision brought to life. We offer free tours that give you a firsthand look at our distillery. One of our guides will lead you on an in-depth journey through the nooks and crannies of the distilling process, from grain to barrel. After each tour, we offer a complimentary tasting of a variety of spirits. Tours and tasting usually last between 45 and 60 minutes.
New Riff is a micro or craft distillery located next to The Party Source, a major purveyor of party supplies (from chips to nuts to booze) on Route 8 on the Newport/Bellevue border just off I-471. Very easy to get to.
As a new distillery, much of its current production is still in the barrels, although they do buy and process bourbon to their own recipes from other locations since it takes 4 to 7 years for initial production to become saleable.
Their line of gin, however, is available and quite interesting - one is normal, one is smoked, and one is infused with hot peppers. Unfortunately, they don't do cherry vodka for which we made the trip.
Tastes were $2 a shot. I found their 10 yoa bourbon very nice, but the gin was strong for my pallet.
Tours are every hour, on the hour and the staff was most pleasant.
As part of the B-line Bourbon Trail, have them stamp your passport and get your engraved cup when all 12 are filled.

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.
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)

This new home for the Cincinnati Reds, the oldest major league baseball team in the U.S., balances its spiffy new look with nostalgic tributes to the team's history including reminders of Crosley Field, where it all began.
This ballpark has great seats. It’s such a fun time and they have some of the lowest ticket prices in baseball.

Temporarily closed for renovation. Due to reopen Fall 2017. Built in 1878 and renovated throughout the decades, this concert and art venue includes the Springer Auditorium, Music Hall Ballroom, Corbett Tower and the Society for the Preservation of Music Hall.
This is an impressive building to say the least and a centerpiece of Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. I unfortunately only appreciated this huge edifice from the outside but I honestly couldn't take my eyes off of it,and it's a perfect example of Venetian Gothic architecture that was popular around late Victorian times and Cincinnati should be proud to have it. Thankfully there were enough people in positions of power willing to preserve it,unfortunately many other cities have lost buildings like this,demolishing them many times to be replaced by shopping malls or parking lots. On my next visit to Cincinnati I'm going to make it a point to attend a concert,opera or some other type of performance here! It's also interesting to note that this music hall is considered to be one of America's most haunted places too! Google its history to find out why!
