EAT

Skyline

Some claim it's not really chili. Others insist it's the way chili was meant to be. All we know is that no visit to the Queen City can be considered complete without a sampling of Cincinnati's unique contribution to the culinary universe.

BBQ
Montgomery Inn

What do five U.S. presidents, Neil Armstrong, Tom Selleck, Bill Cosby, Elizabeth Taylor, Johnny Cash, Elton John, Britney Spears and Bob Hope have in common? They've all strapped on a bib at Montgomery Inn for ribs. Your turn!

pizza
Betta's

The best pizza in town, right around the block. A wood fired, oven-baked, thin but chewy crust complete with a rich array of toppings. Add a calamari appetizer and a glass of the house chianti–perfetto!–but save room for the tiramisu.

PLAY

Reds Game

Pity those very first Xavier students; they had to wait nearly 40 years to take in a Reds game in 1869
(But they did go 57-0 that season). Luckily for you, securing your seat at
Great American Ball Park is easy.

roller coaster
Kings Island

You've conquered AP courses and mastered the SAT. Now are you ready for The Beast (the world's longest wooden rollercoaster) or The Banshee (longest inverted coaster in the world)? They're waiting for you at Kings Island amusement park featuring more than 80 rides, including 14 roller coasters, a 33-acre water park and more.

fountain
Fountain Square

Start with a big square in downtown Cincinnati. Add a fountain topped with a lady with water streaming out of her hands and you've got Fountain Square. But, wait there's more! Toss in special events, free concerts and general festiveness and you'll know why about two million people annually make the short trek to the historic heart of downtown Cincinnati.

EXPLORE
Art
Cincinnati Art Museum

Sometimes you just need a little culture, sometimes you need a lot. So with 60,000 works spanning 6,000 years, the Cincinnati Art Museum's got you covered from Egyptian artifacts to Abstract Expressionists. Perched atop picturesque Eden Park, the setting itself is a work of art. Always free general admission.

Zoo

Founded in 1873, the second oldest zoo in the United States is home to lions, tigers and bears as well as practically every other animal from aardvarks to zebras. Check out the menagerie on Zootube.

Union Terminal
Union Terminal

Seven railroads used to run through Union Terminal. Today this monument to Art Deco architecture houses multiple museums, an Omnimax Theatre and a pretty cool woolly mastodon skeleton. Bring a lunch and your active imagination.
