Cincinnati, OH

(Click here for more photographs.)

We stayed in an area on the north side of Cincinnati called Winton Woods, specifically in the Winton Woods County Park.  It’s a beautiful park with a large lake, large forested areas and ample walking/biking paths.  The campground here was very nice, too.

Downtown Cincinnati

We spent one day exploring a little bit of downtown Cincinnati, mostly around the Riverfront area.  With the Bengal’s Paul Brown Stadium on one side and the Cincinnati Red’s Great American Ball Park on the other, the Smale Riverfront Park is a very inviting outdoor space for all ages.  From the park you can also access the remarkable John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge which spans the Ohio River between Cincinnati and Covington, KY.  When this beautiful bridge was opened in 1866, it was the world’s longest suspension bridge at 1,057 feet.  The next project for the designer of this bridge, John A. Roebling was the Brooklyn Bridge.

Next stop:  Hocking Hills State Park
