As mentioned in the overview, there are tons of things to do in Cincy.
King’s Island is a theme park on the North Side in Mason that has great roller coasters, water rides, games and more! Take a full day for King’s Island, especially if you are going during a hot summer day! By the time you leave you will be E X H A U S T E D!
We totally loved the 16-bit Barcade! Well it’s really Bar + Arcade but we liked pushing those two together better! This place is completely awesome with old school video games and I’m talking Donkey Kong and old school to new wave drinks! This place is a Drink & Play only bar! Treehouse Patio Bar—they have freaking treehouse swings at the bar! Who doesn’t love to swing and drink! FYI they are not (well they weren’t when we went) selling food! So this is just a day drink, socialize and have fun kind of place as well. If you want a treehouse swing seat or a seat at all for that matter you will probably need to arrive early!
Heading downtown for nightlife you can find one of our personal favorites—Jekyll Cincinnati Nightclub. They place a great diverse mix of music. They may start on Pop music; throw in some Salsa and by the end of the night end with hip hop! Other great places for nightlife are Scene Ultra Lounge and Ivy. Friday and Saturday nights are the best times to go to those places.
If you’re into Arts, the Cincinnati Arts Center is amazing. They have all different aspects of art depending on what your taste is. If you prefer music there is a music hall, if you enjoy shows there is Broadway in Cincinnati, and if you enjoy art they have the Weston Art Gallery.
There is also a Railroad Freedom Center that beautifully recognizes African American Art & History. They not only focus on the enslavement of African-Americans but also recognize that there are 27 million people currently enslaved around the world. Check out their website, it gives you a lot to sit and think about!
And if you’re up to it, cross the bridge into Newport on the Levee for more entertainment from the movies to the aquarium to GAMEWORKS! It’s hard to be bored in this city!
