Last week I was up in Cincinnati for a work trip. Now most people discount this city and do not have a desire to visit. I, on the other hand, was excited to explore all The Queen City had to offer. Plus, this trip helped cross Ohio off my bucket list.

Unfortunately, my schedule didn’t allow me the opportunity to go exploring except for one night. Since I didn’t get to explore as much as I had planned, here is my Cincinnati Bucket List for the next time I’m up in Ohio.

American Sign Museum

I have always been a fan of large signs. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s the Public Relations in me. But signs…good signs…have always fascinated me, so I have a feeling I’d really like this museum.

It’s hard to beat a good view. This was going to be my Sunday afternoon excursion, unfortunately my flight landed at the time the tower was closing. So, climbing to the top of Carew Tower and seeing the sweeping views of the Ohio River from 49 stories up will have to wait until next time.

Cincinnati Brewery District Tours

Did you know Cincinnati’s Brewery District is home to one of the largest collections of pre-Prohibition brewery architecture? What better way to explore the city and have a drink then through a brewery tour. You never know, you might find your new favorite beer.

The one thing I was able to do while in Cincinnati was walk across the Roebling Suspension Bridge, Cincinnati’s most iconic suspension bridge. This bridge opened in 1867, the longest bridge in the world at the time it opened, and was engineered by John A. Roebling the same man who engineered the Brooklyn Bridge. The best part was getting to sit on the bank of Covington, Kentucky and look at the Cincinnati skyline.

Despite the fact I was only able to cross one item off my Cincinnati Bucket List, it was still a really great trip, and I’ll definitely be back.

Have you ever been to Cincinnati? What are your favorite sites/things to do in The Queen City?

 

  • Your first sentence was funny to read since that’s definitely how I felt about this city, but I explored Cleveland a few years ago and thought it was great. I’m sure Cincinnati is the same! I feel like every city has its own little charm and I’d love to visit all of them! That sign museum looks awesome by the way. I love signs, too!

  • Hey Amanda. Thanks for stopping by! I’m glad I’m not the only one who tries to find the charm in every city I visit. And the sign museum looks pretty interesting. They don’t make signs like the used to. Haha.
