Coming soon for the weekend from Pittsburgh, mainly for the Surrealism exhibit at the Art Museum, but also to check out a city I've never visited. What are some must-sees? We'll only be there from a Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon at the latest. Obviously a few of the Saturday hours will be at the museum, but what else is there? I've always wanted to check it out and now have the perfect excuse.

Well, the art museum is in Mt. Adams which is a really pretty neighborhood with good architecture and a great view of the city. I would suggest walking around a bit, maybe eating at one of the restaurants. I would suggest going to Northside for the nightlife. It is the more artsy neighborhood. Also, check out the contemporary art center downtown. Saturday at 4pm there will be a performance.

I don't know what exactly you enjoy doing, but there area many different things to see and do in the area. As far as museums go, Cincy has a lot to choose from. The Museum Center at Union terminal has the Museum of Natural History and Science and the Cincinnati History Museum, which are both very nice and large museums. I would also recommend the Omnimax, which is located at the museum center. There is also the Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the Newport Aquarium, the American sign museum, Cincy fire museum, the Creation Museum, and the Taft Museum of Art. One of my favorites is the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and museum. It is a very well done museum showing the history of the oldest professional baseball team in the country, the Cincinnati Reds. The Zoo is great but I'm not sure if there is as much to see in the winter months. I have only been there during warmer months or Holiday in Lights. Check out the Carew Tower observation deck for awesome views! Mount Adams, Downtown and Hyde Park are the best choices for bars and restaurants. You could check out Krohn Conservatory, which is in Mount Adams. Cincinnati also has a number of theaters so you could check out what is playing at the Aronoff Center, Music Hall, or Playhouse in the Park. There are also a number of fun things to do outside the city. The United States Air Force Museum in Dayton is less than an hour away and is definitely worth the trip. Jungle Jim's International market in Fairfield is a very cool store. Kenwood is a great mall to check out. Perfect North Slopes in Southeastern Indiana (25 minutes away) offers very good skiing, for being in the Midwest. The casinos are also nearby in Indiana. I hope you enjoy your trip and find something that interests you! For even more things to do I would check out cincyusa.com

Thanks everybody. That should be more than enough for a little over 24 hours. I'm sure it won't be our last trip, I have a feeling it's my kinda town. I'll definitely revive this once the trip is over.

That's awesome! I also plan on going to this exhibit. I believe Cincinnati is its only U.S. stop?

Btw, your question might better be answered over at UrbanOhio under the traveling/moving thread.

Yep. I saw the Yahoo News headline (which didn't include the city name) that it was making only one US stop and I resolved to go if it was within 8 hours. I'll settle for under 5.

Coming from Pittsburgh. I'll check out UrbanOhio when I get time, but between these suggestions and my neighbor (who knows people there and is familiar with the city), we should be covered. Thanks for your help.
