My favorite skyline shot is from the top of Sycamore Street in Mt. Auburn, north of downtown. The view from Devou Park is amazing as well.

Where to eat ... I'm definitely a lowbrow restaurant type. I would take visitors to Zip's in Mt. Lookout, the City View in Mt. Adams, Tucker's in Over-the-Rhine, Allyn's Cafe in Columbia-Tusculum, Ambar India in Clifton, the Hofbrauhaus or Pompilio's in Newport, the Machine Room at Great American Ball Park, Izzy's ... None are wildly expensive. Ignore me if any of these places have closed. It's been more than a year since I've been to town.

I hear it has a lot of characteristics of the Burgh.
Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are very similar. Parts of Mt. Adams are so similar it's downright creepy. The art museum is in Mt. Adams, and admission is free (thanks to the former publishers of Writer's Digest).

Izzy's may be the best of the ones you mentioned. Aside from being the cheapest they have at least two locations downtown and are down right awesome. We go there every year after the Opening Day parade, so i cant wait to be there next Monday.

Are you wanting photos of the skyline only, or various other places around the city? You should check out Mt. Echo Park in Price Hill. Great shots of the skyline from a distance, as well as the river valley below. Also, Mt. Airy Forest has a nice arboretum you could check out. I'm sure it would be pretty right now with the flowering trees starting to bloom.

I want neighborhoods, and skyline shots. I love exploring a city's neighborhoods. Are the flowers coming out down there already? You guys are like a 100 miles south of Pittsburgh I think. It would be nice to get some spring shots.

Eden Park in Mt. Adams and Ault Park in Mt. Lookout are covered in daffodils this time of year.

Hartwell is the northern most neighborhood of the City of Cincinnati and we have a lot of flowering trees lining our streets, and yes, they are blooming. We had a couple of really warm days along with some rain showers which opened a lot up. I recently added a couple of pics to my profile page of some forysthia and magnolias blooming and plan on getting back out to get some pics of our neighborhood trees. We have bradford pears, crabapples, cherry, and golden rain trees (the goldens are not in bloom yet) which line many of our streets.
Enjoy your trip!

While Mt Echo and Mt Airy are nice, they have nothing on Eden and Ault Parks. Thats where it is. Ault Park probably wont have everything abloom but in the spring / summer it has a huge array of flowers.

If you visit the UC campus area, check out Martinos on short Vine. THey are a family owned and operated bar/restaurant and are from Pittsurgh. All the pittsburgh items will make you feel right at home.

But I want to go to Cincy to get the cincy feel. Not travel to Cincy to pretend I am back in Pittsburgh.

your Photos are real nice btw on your profile.

Thanks everybody for all of your input, as it is very helpful. When I get home tonight I am going to search all these neighborhoods, parks, and restaurants and map them out. I have always wondered what Cincy was like. Another city that I am going to visit soon is Detroit. I always had a big curiosity about Detroit, because I wonder if it is really as bad as people say it is.
