Destination guide

Cheer on your favorite team when visiting Cincinnati

Cincinnati is synonymous with sports. Opening day for the Cincinnati Reds is practically a city-wide holiday when thousands of fans don their Reds shirts and line downtown streets to watch the parade and participate in the many game day activities. Not a baseball fan? They have the Bengals, The Cyclones, and the Kentucky Derby right across the river, as well as 7 major sports venues. Though famous for Cincinnati Chili and Goetta, The Queen City’s local flavor showcases its German heritage. Cincinnati vacation rentals in Hyde Park, Over-the-Rhine, or near The Square invite scrumptious samplings of local Bavarian cuisine.

Things to do

Secrets of Cincinnati

Browse through 65,000 pieces of art narrating 6,000 years of history and culture when you visit the Cincinnati Art Museum, where admission to the 73 permanent collection galleries is always free. While you’re at it, take a step back in time to Harriet Beecher Stowe’s House and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center where visitors discover that Cincinnati was once an important stop on the secret network that freed over 100,000 slaves. Why not involve the whole family and join the center in its efforts to abolish slavery in the modern world, and bring awareness to human trafficking?


Bottoms up in Cincinnati

Laying claim to the world’s largest Chicken Dance, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is America’s largest Oktoberfest with over 500,000 attendees each year. Sample a 6-pound pretzel, pickled pig’s feet, strudel, and many other German delicacies, cheer on your favorite pooch in the Running of the Wieners, or sample one of the many fine brews available. If beer is your thing, don’t limit yourself to Oktoberfest. Cincinnati vacation rentals are popular in March as well, thanks to Bockfest. The beer festival celebrates the beginning of spring and Over-the-Rhine’s brewing legacy with live music, unique food, and delicious cold bock beer.
