Carew Tower provides excellent views of downtown Cincinnati, the riverfront and the Ohio River. It costs a measly $2 to gain access to the observation deck. A mere fraction of the cost compared to observation decks in other cities around the US and the world.
You need to be very careful of what elevator to get on as I must not have been paying too much attention. A normal elevator ride will take you up to the 45th floor where you can on another elevator to the 48/49th floor where the observation deck is. I got on an elevator and pressed the button for the 45th floor. My car stopped on the 22nd floor and did nothing. The doors didn't open, it didn't move up or down. I was worried that I had become stuck! After a deep breath I hit the "door open" button and got out on the 22nd floor and took another car to the 45th. It stopped my heart for a second. Don't make my mistake!
