Memorial Day week-end

My husband and I will be in Cincinnati Memorial week-end for four days. We are going to catch two Reds games and go to the Taste of Cincinnati. We have already been to the zoo. What else would you suggest we do?

Here's a pretty good and comprehensive list:

tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g60993-Activitie…

If you like thrill rides, I'd suggest Kings Island. If you like museum's I'd suggest Museum Center or the Aquarium but there's also the Contemporary Arts Center, the Art Museum (it's free), and the Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

If you like outdors, there's a nice bike trail in Loveland where you can rent bikes. You can also get canoes there to float down the Little Miami (Scenic) River.

What do you like to do?

I second the Levee area in Newport for the aquarium and a relaxing sunset nightcap. You might also check out a river cruise there are both straight cruises for a couple of hours and dinner cruises as well. http://www.bbriverboats.com

You should definitely go to Mt. Adams. For a drink, head to the patio at the Blind Lemon. There are several dining options there. Be sure to stroll around the neighborhood, it's beautiful.

For directions to Mt. Adams, search for St. Gregory & Pavilion St, Cincinnati, OH

For an amazing overlook, pull up the directions to 1077 Celestial St., Cincinnati OH.

www.mtadamstoday.com has some information on the neighborhood.

Yes, you'd probably enjoy the boat cruise. You get outdoors and dining all in one shot, plus some nice views.

For nightlife, check out Citybeat, the free newspaper available everywhere. Sometimes you can also find one called The Downtowner.

The Aronoff center is playing Mama Mia for the "Broadway Across America" series during your time here:

If you like outdoors and plants, you might like the Krohn Conservatory. It's like a plant museum although it's indoors. Or you might want to wander around the Cincinnati Civic Garden Center in Clifton, just 2-3 miles north of downtown (http://www.civicgardencenter.org/). Kind of similar but lots of outdoor gardens and paths, and it's free because it's supported by volunteers.

Thank you for such great ideas. If you think of anything else let me know. How far is it to Amish Country?

The Amish country is about an hour out of Cincinnati to the East of the I275 loop. The area is interesting with a wonderful bakery and interesting woodworking shop/store. I am not sure It's worth a day of your very busy schedule but that's up to you. Ciao

The Amish region I've heard of is about half way between Columbus and the West Virginia border (Wheeling). It's about a 3 hour drive.

The Amish area closest to Cincinnati is in Adams County to the east about an hour away from I275. The community is called West Union. Many people like to make an afternoon/evening of it by visiting and then dropping down to the Ohio River and driving back along the country & scenic route in time for dinner & sundown at the riverfront or some small independent restaurant on the way back. The whole trip should take 5 or so hours. Most of the interesting stores & shops are grouped together. Check out -
