"Cincinnati is famous for it's Skyline Chili that is amazing"

Score of City:
5.0 / 5

Cincinnati home of the Bengals who keep on scoring big in the renown Paul Brown stadium! This warm historic like city has a wide variety of entertainment and shopping! From Kings Island that has some of the most thrilling roller coasters to Downtown Newport which features tons of shopping outlets! My favorite time of year to visit is in the winter months because they set up an outdoor skating rink in Fountain Square. There also is a ski resort called Perfect North Slopes that is open in the winter season where you can ski, go tubing, and snowboard. It's AWESOME! As far as food Cincinnati is famous for it's Skyline Chili that is amazing and also has many fine restaurants scattered through out the city. As you can tell I'm a huge Cincinnati fan and highly recommend taking a relaxing but exciting fun filled vacation to go see what you've been missing out on!

Seasonality of Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati is the kind of city that comes alive in spring. When April and May hit, you can find lots of fun festivals and activities happening. They keep coming through September. If you want to avoid the heat and humidity, visit in May or September. Since these are more popular times to visit Cincinnati, you may notice hotel rates increasing slightly. If you can stand the summer heat, Cincinnati is fun in the hot months, too, because of baseball and river activities. Plus, in August the city throws a great blues fest for music fans.To get the best hotel rates, visit Cincinnati in the winter. Ohio gets relatively cold in winter with Cincinnati's lows in the 20s during the season. Still, the winter temperatures in southern Ohio shouldn't bother anyone from the northernmost part of New England, or even from northern Ohio. Ultimately, Cincinnati doesn't have extreme high and low seasons like some tourist destinations do, so hotel prices won't fluctuate as much as they would in, say, Florida.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Cincinnati, OH:

We had a great outing at Winton Woods Park in the Harper Meadow Area! Nice spacious covered shelter for our picnic, playground area near the shelter for the kids, and restrooms within a few yards. Coney Island was the main attraction for our event. It was fantastic! We enjoyed amusement rides all day, sunlite pool and water rides all day, free soft drinks throughout the park all day, and a catered meal (ribs, roasted chicken quarters, 3 side dishes, and dinner roll) all for less than $32.95 + tax per person ages 5 and older and just $4.95 + tax for ages 2-4. If you're planning a gathering for a large group and want to have a great day without any hard work, CONEY ISLAND is the place to go!

We went to the butterfly exhibit at Krohn Conservatory. It is the best one we have seen, and we have been to four. Then we went to Cincinnati Museum of Art. We have been to most major museums on the East Coast and were pleasantly surprised at the depth and breath of their exhibits. The conservatory was $8. The museum was free. Parking was $4. What a fabulous bargain!
