Whether you live in Cincinnati or are traveling through the area there are plenty of awesome things to experience in the Queen City! We have the top 10 things that you’ll have to put on your to-do list, that you’ll want to keep going back too. So get ready to make more memories that you can share with others!

1. Coney Island and Sunlite Pool

This historic theme park has been around since 1867 and it’s the perfect place to get a dose of nostalgia! There are games, shows and more at this fantastic little theme park that has a huge pool and water slides. This destination appeals to the entire family and there’s a lot of options for things to do near the park like the casino/race track located next door, and various restaurants, bars, and breweries to eat and drink at.

2. Findlay Market

You can’t miss out on taking a day trip to this incredible market that has everything you could possibly hope for or want out of a market. The food is absolutely amazing and so are the friendly people there. Findlay Market gives you a real sense of what the community is like in Cincinnati and highlights what we’re known for. The scent of fresh food is in the air, with live music on the street, plenty of places to sit and eat, and lots of different shops to check out that have locally made goods by local artisans.

3. RiverFront and The Banks

Cincinnati is one of the most beautiful river cities in America and you really get to see that when visiting the RiverFront and The Banks. The park along the water is wonderful, with many activities for the entire family to enjoy. There are sculptures and gardens that are very pleasant to encounter with an excellent view of the city. The Banks is one of the most happening places to be and there’s always a party on the weekends to join in on! When the sun goes down this area is just as beautiful with all of the city lights reflecting off the river, take a walk on one of the bridges to get the full spectrum!

4. Visit the Parks

The parks here are beyond amazing and there are several of them that offer something for everyone. Eden Park in Mt. Adams is the perfect place to have a leisure day and the best place to see views of the city. There are overlooks at the park that give you an amazing view of the river leading into downtown Cincinnati and of Kentucky, making it a great area for taking pictures. Washington Park in OTR is a major place to go to for events, live music, and pure enjoyment! It’s dog friendly and has a patio with refreshments to enjoy on a hot day.

5. Krohn Conservatory

Art, nature, and science come together at the Krohn Conservatory. Krohn is located in Eden Park in Mt. Adams and is truly an enchanting experience. The butterfly shows that they have there are magnificent and really give you the opportunity to connect with wildlife and nature in a way that’s approachable and exciting. There is a waterfall inside that has a creek with fish and turtles inhabiting it, making it feel like you’re in the rainforest. The building has sections for different species of plants and walking from one room to the next transforms a new environment to discover.

6. Cincinnati Zoo

We have one of the top rated zoo’s in the country! A zoo that is not only beautiful but is also educational and fun. The zoo does a great job to help wildlife and nature through their Saving Species program, animal care, and by going completely green with solar power.  There are different events to check out throughout the year and your trip there will feel like you’re on a real exploration of adventure.

7. Live Performances

Cincinnati has always been a hub for music and live performances! There are several venues to check out that offer a variety of different acts that appeal to every type of style and genre.  Music Hall, Memorial Hall, and The Taft Theater are historic venues that are absolutely stunning that feature talent all over the world. We also have the Aronoff and Playhouse in the park for well known shows and a few concert venues that feature locals and bring in big name performers.

YPCC Presents Spring Awakening: Life, Death, and Rebirth

Young Professionals Choral Collective (YPCC) is presenting its spring concert, ‘Spring Awakening: Life, Death, and Rebirth’ at The Carnegie on Tuesday, March 8th at 7pm. YPCC is partnering with MUSE, a Cincinnati’s Women’s Chorus, to celebrate the diverse legacy of LGBT and women-identified composers and poets. This concert will explore both the metaphorical and literal journey of life through the eyes of LGBT artists.

Spring Awakening

YPCC’s Executive Director, Jenny Spring, muses: “After the cold of winter and the solitude of the pandemic, we are ready to welcome Spring! As the New Year unfolds, we will be heading across the river into Northern Kentucky for a concert at the historic Carnegie theater. Our Artistic Director, Danielle Cozart Steele, has collaborated with remarkably talented partners for this multisensory experience we cannot wait to share with our supporters!

Audience members are encouraged to sing-along with some well-loved and well-known music with MUSE and YPCC. Additionally, audience members will hear spoken word poetry from Manuel Iris, poet laureate of Cincinnati.

In partnership with SOS Art, there will be an art exhibit on display in the lobby featuring Inside Out, an exhibit curated by Jay DeFazio, with a multitude of transgender artists paired with local poets. This is a wonderful event to support both transgender and LGBT community members in both art and music.

Tickets are $30 and the experience includes pre-show hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and admission to the exhibit Inside Out, with an opportunity to mix and mingle with artists from the show. Ticket price will rise to $35 the day of the event.

About YPCC: Young Professionals Choral Collective is an innovative choir of 21-45 year old’s that are all about community, culture, and singing in unique spaces.

About MUSE: Muse is a Women’s Chorus that performs at a variety of venues and areas with diverse community members to promote peace, equality, and justice.

About Inside Art: Inside Out is a community-based art initiative celebrating the strength, beauty, and resiliency of transgender individuals. Their goal is to bring together members of the transgender community to participate in a collaborative and supportive art experience.

About Manuel Iris: Manuel Iris is a Mexican poet and focuses his writing on life, eternity, and the bridges that unite them: beauty and death.

YPCC Rehearsals

YPCC is committed to protecting its singers and audience. For the Spring Awakening concert at The Carnegie, the audience must be vaccinated and masked. Extra masks will be available at the venue. Please see YPCC’s Covid Safety Measures here.

This program is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically. This program is also supported by the generosity of more than 1,700 ArtsWave Pride contributors to the ArtsWave Community Campaign and funded in part by a grant from Greater Cincinnati Foundation.
