Hello all~

I am looking to visit the Cincinnati area to visit with my 10 year old son, what fun friendly things are there to do there? I originally thought to take him to the zoo...but he just went. Can anyone give me some good ideas?

You could go to the aquarium in Newport.

I haven't been to the Museum Center in awhile, but there's lots to choose from there: history, natural history, and children's museums.

What is he interested in?

Just an observation: Kids don't necessarily need to have "kid things" to do in order to have fun. For instance, you could start out in Covington, take him for a walk across the Roebling Suspension Bridge - a historic bridge crossing the Ohio River - stop at the Freedom Center, and then head up to the top of Carew Tower to let him look out over the surrounding area. Or you could start at Sawyer Point and walk along the park, and then walk over the Purple People Bridge to Newport and finish up at Gameworks or the Aquarium. You could also catch a BB Riverboat Cruise along the river. If you come in on the weekend, you still have time to take him to the Ohio Renaissance Festival, or even the FearFest at Kings Island.

I agree with the museum. My kids love it!

Another fun thing to do would be to take the train between Lebanon and Mason. Not sure if it just operates on the weekends.

Oooooooh - cool idea. I LOVE trains. Actually, I love anything that follows a defined path or trail. There's something about it that fascinates me.

Probably because they've named their two largest coasters using the word "beast". LOL! Wow, you know what? It's actually been 9 years since I've been to KI. I probably wouldn't recognize half of the park now.

What I'm really afraid of are the drunken idiots that climb the Eiffel Tower. Although, I don't think the beer flows as freely at KI as it used to.

The only thing worth its salt at that park is the Racer. Wouldn't surprise me if that classic coaster were to disappear someday. I loved the King Cobra, and its gone.

I agree about King Cobra. When they removed that, it really upset some people (including me) that they didn't replace it with another coaster - perhaps another stand-up model, or a floorless B&M (after all, they are built in Newtown).

Maybe you could ask him what he wants to do? How about canoeing along the Little Miami River?
