State parks and hill stations near Cincinnati

by tintin99

Hi:

I would like to know if there are any good state parks or hill stations near Cincinnati. I would be staying for a week in Cincinnati and i can make only day trips. I need to return back to Cincinnati by late evening. I had visited all the museums in Cincinnati when i visited last time and i'm more keen on visiting scenic places this time. Any suggestions in this regard would be appreciated.

Thanks!

There are a couple of state parks (one in Ohio and one in Kentucky) not too far from the Cincinnati area. The first 2 websites will take you to their sites. The last site is for the Kentucky Horse Park. My wife and I and our oldest son went there many years ago and really enjoyed our day there. It is about 75 miles from Cincinnati, but an easy 1 1/4 hour drive from Cincinnati.

Travel Tips for Cincinnati

Cincinnatus

by Stephen-KarenConn

The City of Cincinnati was founded in 1788 near Fort Washington and was first called Losantville, meaning "town opposite the mouth of the Licking River." In 1790, Arthur St. Clair, Governor of the Northwest Territory, changed the name to Cincinnati, in honor of the Society of Cincinnati, of which he was president. The Society honored General George Washington, considered a latter-day Cincinnatus.

In 458 B.C. Rome was in deep trouble. An enemy, the neighboring Aequi, was at Rome's gate with new weapons and offensive tactics. Cincinnatus Lucius Quinctius was a Roman nobleman who had retired from public service and returned to his small farm. He was in his field when he learned he had been appointed dictator for six months by the Roman Senate. He laid down his plow and took up the sword to command Rome's army and lead them into victory over the Aequi. After that, Cincinnatus could have become Emperor for life. Instead, sixteen days after he had been named dictator, he relinquished his position and returned to his farm. He is considered a model of Roman virtue. How different from the polititians of today who will do anything just to hold on to their power.

This Statue of Cincinnatus is at Sawyer Point, on the downtown Ohio Riverfront of Cincinnati.

The Beautiful Ohio River

by Stephen-KarenConn

In the Iroquois Indian tongue "Ohio" means "Beautiful," and that's where the river, and the state on it's northern banks, get their names. The first European to discover the Ohio was French explorer Sieur De La Salle in 1670. A little over 100 years later the river was included in the territory of the United States as a result of the Revolutionary War and the Treaty of Paris, 1776-1785.

The Ohio begins at the confluence of the Monongahela and the Allegheny Rivers at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and flows for 980 miles until it empties into the Mississippi River at Cairo, Illinois. For more than 200 years the Ohio was the great highway to the west of the American pioneer. Today it is still a working river, and Cincinnati is one of its principal ports. 49 locks and moveable dams have been built along the Ohio, giving it a 9-foot flood stage to river navigation. In this photo, taken from Eden Park, a barge is seen approaching the bridges that span the Ohio at Cincinnati.

Skyline Chili

by frankcanfly

Skyline Chili is a local institution, and serves great food. Here's a photo of the original in the Clifton Gaslight District.

Some History from the Skyline Chili Website:

A storied past. A bright future.

In 1949, on a hilltop overlooking Cincinnati, Ohio, Nicholas Lambrinides and his sons opened a small restaurant and began serving what would soon become a Cincinnati icon—Skyline Chili. The name came from the impressive view of the city's outline against the sky and has since become synonymous with a unique dish known as Cincinnati-style chili. Today, there are more than 100 Skyline Chili restaurants in four states, a credit to the vision of Nicholas Lambrinides and his sons—men who had the determination to perfect a truly new dining experience way back in 1949.

A simple product…simply made.

Since the beginning, the appeal of Skyline Chili to operators and customers alike has been its simplicity and unique taste. Our famous, easily assembled 3-, 4-, and 5-Way chili dishes, along with our unique Coney Island "Cheese Coneys," represent nearly 75 percent of sales. From an operator's standpoint, you can imagine the efficiencies this creates in the back of the house and in providing fast service to our guests. Customers place their order with a Skyline Chili table server and, within minutes, they receive a delicious meal.

The quality of our secret recipe chili is no mystery.

Skyline's secret-recipe chili is cooked daily at our commissary to maintain a high level of quality. The commissary, which is centrally located just outside Cincinnati, produces the chili and packages it so that it only needs to be reheated at each restaurant unit. This "heat and serve" method helps our restaurants achieve consistent quality and keeps food preparation simple. We constantly strive to find ways to keep our restaurant operation streamlined.

Cincinnati Reds - Almost a real baseball team!

by kdoc13

Ah, the Cincinnati Reds. This is the team that was the first professional baseball team, the team that brought you the signs for balls and strikes, and is the proud holder of the opening day tradition.

Yeah, that's great and all, but they haven't been in the playoffs in decades!

The Cincinnati Reds do win occasionally, sometimes in big ways. And if you want to see the stars of the future, the team has a bunch! They also have stars of the present, but they are always injured.

The red seats are cheap, and still a pretty decent view of the action, and if you eat before coming to the ballpark, you have an evening of entertainment for a fairly small expense. Really, Great American Ballpark has everything you need. All you need to do is bring yourself and money to cover whatever kind of stuff you want to buy.

remains of Riverfront Stadium

by sambarnett

(yes, I know it took on a corporate name in 1996. I will not repeat it here)
   I don’t imagine there will be any remnants or memorials for this circular monstrosity. Opened in 1970, this was the first outdoor ballpark to feature artificial turf. Although short lived, Riverfront Stadium saw a lot of history including the rise of the great “Big Red Machine” in the 1970s, Hank Aaron’s record-tying 714th career home run in 1974 and Pete Rose’s record breaking 4,192 career hit in 1985.
