Good point, it is the Pittsburgh Steelers bar during the football season. Other than that this bar has never been that appealing to me. I prefer Christie's, maybe because its outside in the spring/summer.

Lots of cool buildings in Clifton too.

[quote=Awesomo.2000;8125995]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.

I understand what you're saying...it's a great place to grab a good meal though! And thanks for the photo comments-I've been waiting for the sun to peek out and it has so I may head out to take some more pictures. Again, enjoy your visit to Cincy!

It's more than just a Steelers bar, it is near the UC campus and has UC fans pack the place too. Are you a Bengals fan? Just kidding.

Nah, actually i'm a Steelers fan, but the bar itself just isnt anything special. There are much better hang out spots in Clifton, IMO.

Anyways, i get what the OP is saying, no reason to come to Cincy and go to a Pitt themed bar or vise versa. Anyways, based on her interests i think Devu, Ault, and Eden Parks should be definates.

As Hartwell Girl said, yes there are flowers popping up all over. I saw daffodils for the first time this season along the trail behind my house last week. There are also a lot of flowering pear and cherry trees, as well as magnolias in bloom. The times I was in Ault Park, the magnolias were really pretty and very fragrant.

I know you probably don't want to waste the time or money, but the zoo would be a really good choice, too. They have a lot of tulips on display.

Definitely check out Mt. Adams/Eden Park while you're in town.

My suggestion for Mt. Echo was strictly for the western view of the skyline, albeit from a distance. Mt. Airy is indeed different than Eden Park or Ault Park, but neither one of those parks makes you feel like you're in a forest. Mt. Airy gives the feel of being in a state park as opposed to a city park, and I think it's a nice place to visit for people coming from out of town. The arboretum isn't breathtaking, no, but it's actually a very quaint place with the pond and interesting trees.

Agreed - but Ault Park has a lot of trails and forest areas too. But Mt Airy does have a nice forest.

You're right about the trails in Ault Park. I used to park near the pavilion and walk down into the ravine from the parking area. I think Ault Park would make a unique pit stop on the Amazing Race.

Aquila--good call on the tulips at the Cincinnati Zoo...forgot all about those! Great display each year--did everyone know they sell the bulbs each year after they are finished blooming? You can get a whole bag for less than $10.

If you have time you might want to swing up a bit to the northwest side to Fairfield and check out Jungle Jim's. Technically not "in" Cincinnati, but if you are in the area ...

Yeah, Jungle Jims is definately an experience, its a little out of the way but if you like to cook then wow. Might not be right for what the OP is looking fo though.
