I'll be in Cincinnati (delivering a tuba), and will be staying overnight. Not much time there, but would like to see some of the sites.
Any suggestions on must sees/must eat in Cincinnati, OH?
I'm particularly considering the Hofbräuhaus Newport (in KY), so if anyone's been there and would like to give me some feedback, that'd be great. I've been to the real Hofbräuhaus in Munich, so I don't want to end up going if it will be a real big disappointment.
Thanks in advance!
If you like architecture, you might enjoy a 'walk through' of the Hilton Netherlands Plaza Hotel on 5th Street right downtown. Good place to eat, too.
Jungle Jim's International Food Mart in Fairfield
A nice art museum
Newport on the Levee (KY)--Aquarium is real nice and popular
Classical Music Hall of Fame
If you like amusement parks, Kings Island (or the beach water park) bring in a lot of tourists...
Regarding architecture...Over the Rhine...which is near music hall, is actually real nice. However, the neighborhood was rated one of twenty most dangerous neighborhoods in the country.
If Cincinnati is the half way point for both of you, I recommend doing the tuba drop off at kenwood mall in the blue ash area or in the mason area north of 71. Hope you have fun
I'd go to White Castle!!
Tried it twice after a band director from Cincy couldn't stop talking about it. Didn't see what the big deal was; much prefer my own homemade chili, my wife's homemade chili, canned chili, vegetarian canned chili, even my ex-wife's chili...
Now, if we are giving a shoutout to our favorite regional food, here is my obligatory Rutt's Hutt pic
I would make it a point to see Music Hall despite the neighborhood, but with the following caveat...
If you go there, park on (I think) the west side of Music Hall. Avoid parking in the front of the building next to the park or you'll be hastled by panhandlers, prostitutes and other people that are loitering around the park. Go during the day and be street smart and you won't have any problems so long as you're not venturing off into the neighborhood alone either on foot or in your car. They're really trying to clean the area up, but they've got a long ways to go. The architecture really is impressive though.

You all are missing the best part. If you try anything that is purely Cincinnati you must go to Graeter's Ice Cream. There are several located throughout Cincinnati. Oprah Winfrey called it the best ice cream in American and if you ever seen Oprah you know she knows ice cream. I recommend the black raspberry chip.
