Adventures Around Cincinnati by Laura Hoevener and Terri Weeks

Adventures Around Cincinnati

I have lived in Cincinnati my whole life so when I received a copy of the new Adventures Around Cincinnati book, I was hoping I would discover a few places that I have not heard of or have been to yet.

The book is broken down into three parts and then several chapters within those parts:

Part 1: Creating Memories With Your Family – This talks about planning and executing your adventure

Part 2: Attraction Listings – This includes Central Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati, Dayton and then a few listings for Columbus, Louisville and Indianapolis

Part 3: Planning Help – This includes making itineraries, and seasonal adventures

I love the way the book is laid out, as you can see from the picture of the page on the Carew Tower, the authors list the address, phone, hours, cost, ages, stroller/wheelchair friendly, length of visit and a description of what there is to do with a few fun facts mixed in. All of the pages are laid out this in this format making all the pertinent information easy to find at a glance.

Adventures Around Cincinnati Excerpt

 

While there were a lot of places we have been to as a family, there were several little gems that I had not heard of like taking tours of Paul Brown Stadium or touring of The Purple People Bridge. Just so you know Cincinnati has a big purple bridge because that is the color the focus groups picked when it was restored. Another day trip the kiddos would like is going to see the World’s Largest Horseshoe Crab located on Route 28 in Blanchester. Who Knew? This horseshoe is 24 feet wide, 12 feet tall and hollow so you are able to walk underneath plus there is no admission fee.

This 2nd edition was just published this year, I would love to be able to see an image of each location in future editions. Overall this book is a must have especially for when you have a day with nothing to do…just whip out this book and find yourself an adventure!

    I’ve never been to Cincinnati before, so I don’t know about any of the places there. However, if you cross the Ohio river and go into Kentucky, there is a place that is called Newport Aquarium that is a lot of fun.

    I would have to say Union Terminal. The building is awesome just awesome with so much history. Eden park is also a beautiful place to visit with Krons Conservatory. Then we have some awesome museum too. The Taft Theatre is a favorite building to see along with Carew Tower. We have a great Zoo too. Take a stroll down fourth streeand look up at the buildings they are gorgeous. You can’t forget Finley Market either. I haven’t scratched the surface. There are so many things to do and see in Cincinnati and surround areas. I grew up in and around Cincinnati.

    As a huge baseball fan, I believe every visitor to Cincinnati should visit the Great American Ballpark, home to the Cincinnati Reds.

    My favorite Cincinnati location is the Great American Ball Park. For people who don’t know, the Cincinnati Reds baseball team plays there home games there and it’s IMO one of the top stadiums in baseball today.
