Now, there is some old stuff.

One could visit the place President Lincoln, General Grant, and General Sherman planned the siege of Atlanta and the famous March to the Sea.

RE: OT: Cincinnati visit
it was the first city in the west. the roebling was the precursor to the brooklyn bridge. first professional baseball team. second largest oktoberfest. otr. the river jordan. james f*ckin brown

small potatoes stuff i get it, but interesting enough. just like pretty much any other city with a history

edit;

i forget who said it, probably mark twain, that had the roebling been given wide berth continuing on into downtown (and i'm assuming covington??), it would have been one of the loveliest avenues.... in all the world. i slightly jest but i don't remember the whole quote

USAF museum in Dayton is good for history. You can see the other state that claims to be first in aviation. Nagasaki bomber Bockscar and old Air Force one planes are a couple of the highlights, but there is a ton there. It's free too. The Voice of America museum is close to the tennis center, but hours are limited to 1-4 pm sat & sun. Cold War and WWII history there. Mason also has three breweries; 16 lots, Sonder, and the Common Beer Co. Twin Cities pizza is popular and with the tennis in town, make a reservarion. Golden Lamb is a nicer dining experience and the oldest inn in Ohio, est. 1803. Presidents and Dickens stayed there. Liberty Center isn't too far for shopping, dining or movies. Kings Island is across the freeway from the tennis center. It's run by the same group as Carrowinds. Nothing as good as Fury 325 there, but some really good coasters. Over the Rhine is a unique experience. Main and 12th is a good place to start. We have a good zoo. 2nd zoo in the country so there is some history there too. My favorite watering hole is the Monkey Bar, which is a few miles from the tennis center. Live music almost every night, so it would be a low effort spot after the matches.

Just an FYI, if you're just *thinking* about going to the tennis tournament, I highly recommend it. The whole thing is done right. Even better if you get to sit in seats attached to a private suite. Good times.

And don't forget to go to Gold Star Chili. Pretty broad consensus on this board that it's the best chili around.

Says who? Gold Star is mass produced factory stuff, cranked out in large quantities to meet the needs of a chain enterprise. If you're going to eat Cincinnati chili, you want the hand-crafted variety made at Camp Washington and other one-off outlets around town. Gold Star...yeah, right.

I don't claim to have tried them all...but of my visits to Camp Washington, Ft Wright, Price Hill & Blue Ash... I prefer Blue Ash Chili.

Just one person's opinion

mainstrasse is good
Braxton Brewery
New Rift distillery

Skip Newport on the Levee
Google, because there is usually some good festivals during the weekends.

Cincinnati
Highly recommend Rhinegeist Brewery
I also like northside distillery
The OTR bars and restaurants

A bit up the road but WELL worth it is the Wright Patt Air Force museum. Amazing
and free museum if you like military or aviation history.

Follow every recommendation in this list. OTR, Mainstrasse, Wright Pat.

Sorry. Skyline can't be touched in the chili wars.

Now, Empress used to be pretty good. Is Empress still around?
