For the price of $2 this has got to be the best deal in any city. You get to go up to a an open top building and see Cincinnati in all directions. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Cinci to do this.

The 360 degree view from the top of Carew Tower (49th floor) is a great way to get your bearings in the city and to plan what you want to see next. The observation deck is outdoors and very safe. The elevator up to the 45th floor is very quick and you can choose to take a small elevator the rest of the way or walk the 4 additional floors. We walked and found it very easy to navigate to the deck. Admission is only $2 for adults and $1 for kids. This is the best return on investment for any attaraction in Cincinnatti.

Our family spent about an hour on the roof of Carew Tower taking in the beautiful scenery of Cincinnatti and northern Kentucky. Some beautiful pictures and you can really see all of the buildings and the layout of the city from here. Watching ships, paddle wheelers, trains. traffic and the people in the downtown area is easy to do. You can see both the Reds and Bengals stadiums very clearly. There are no screens or fences blocking your 360 degree view. Only thing missing is a detailed picture map of what you are looking at. I would highly recommend this bargain attraction when you are in Cincy.

No longer the tallest building in Cincinnati, but still an amazing view for less than a 5 spot.

This was a fun thing to do in downtown Cincinnati. It is a good thing for visitors to do. It is one of the things I take people to when they come visit. It is just a tall building with an outdoor area at the top for you to look over the city. But that is fun and kids like it. If you are visiting the city be sure to go to Fountain Square and also hit Greater's Ice Cream and either Gold Star or Skyline Chili.
