The Most Fun Things to Do in Cincinnati

We always hear about big cities in the US when discussing education hubs, business hubs, tourist destinations, or architectural marvels. Several not-so-bigger cities offer equal opportunities in every field. One such city in Ohio is Cincinnati.

Cincinnati is a storied city with much to offer. Once called the “Paris of America,” it’s filled with stunning architecture like the Music Hall and Cincinnation Hotel.

The University of Cincinnati was founded in 1819 and is now one of the largest schools in the nation. It’s home to several sports teams, over 40 local breweries, a line-up of delicious restaurants, and an art and entertainment scene that keeps the locals busy.

Catch a game

Cincinnati is home to the NFL’s Bengals, MLS’s FC Cincinnati, and MLB’s Reds.

The Reds are integral to baseball history as the first openly professional ball club in 1869. Today they play at the Great American Ballpark, the team’s seventh home stadium, and have five World Series titles to their names.

The Bengals have not yet won a Super Bowl but have appeared in three Super Bowl games and several playoffs through their years in the league. They kick off at the Paul Brown stadium among a sea of orange and black.


Get an eyeful of art

The Art Museum at Cincinnati was established in 1881 and is one of the oldest in the country. It’s free admission and houses more than 67,000 works of art that span 6,000 years of talent. 

A noted piece in the collection is the Odoardo Fantacchiotti angels, created for the main altar of St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in the late 1840s.

You can also find works by Sandro Botticelli, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso. 

It sits in scenic Eden Park, away from the bustle of city life, making it a quiet affair for those looking for a peaceful adventure.


Head to market

Findlay Market is another long-standing spot in the city, founded in 1852. This local market showcases the area’s best meats, cheeses, produce, and handcrafted items.

The stalls in the hub are both indoor and outdoor, and it’s open Tuesday through Sunday year-round.


Hang out with furry friends

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden has a vast number of animals and plants life and a 4D theater and rides.

This second oldest zoo in the nation is home to the world-famous hippo Fiona, the first Nile hippo born in the zoo in 75 years.

There are over 500 animals here, including the last living passenger pigeon and the last living Carolina parakeet. Habitats include Cat Canyon, Gorilla World, Reptile House, Wolf Woods, and the Elephant Reserve.

Attend a performance

Cincinnati Music Hall not only brings in top talent for shows but is also a marvel to behold.

This stunning piece of architecture is considered one of the best examples of Victorian Gothic Revival Style, designed by Samuel Hannaford.

The hall has hosted famous historical figures like Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Johnny Cash, The Grateful Dead, and Ella Fitzgerald have played here.

Today, the Hall hosts concerts, off-Broadway shows, and much more. It is also named one of the most Terrifying Places in America thanks to the many paranormal experiences that several employees have reported over the years.

Traveling to a new place expands our horizon and provide opportunities to explore new dimensions. Every place possesses a unique warmth and teaches new experiences in life. 'The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.' Saint Augustine.
