    Rabbit Hash Kentucky

    by mig7410 Written Dec 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This sleeply tiny town on the banks of the Ohio is a great place to get away. The curvey, hilly roads make the Rabbit Hash a popular desitnation for motorcyclist. On the weekend with warm weather, bikers will flow though the town throughout the day.
    The General Store is a cool old building with a cold beverage waiting, or maybe some homemade deer jerky. Often there is local band playing some bluegrass.

    A visit to Mt. Adams. It is a scenic area just east of downtown Cincinnati with views of the Ohio river and the downtown area. Beautiful older homes, a park, the Art museum, a Play house and many uniques bars, restaurants and shops are concentrated in a 5 block area. Great place to enjoy and afternoon or an evening.

    remains of Crosley Field

    by sambarnett Updated Jan 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a fire burned down the elegant Palace of the Fans; a place that, judging by the pictures I’ve seen, lived up to its moniker, the Cincinnati Reds played ball at Crosley Field from 1912 until 1970. Crosley Field, known as Redland Field from 1912 to 1933, is best remember as the site of the first Major League night game on May 24, 1935. This set of benches, with another row nearby, are all that remain of this once grand old ballpark.
       Exit I-75 at Western Avenue and proceed just past Dalton Street. The benches are located in front of the building on the right.

    remains of Riverfront Stadium

    by sambarnett Updated Jan 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (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.

    That��s Hyde Park, Cincinnati

    One of the nicest neighborhoods of Cincinnati is the Hyde Park area. Huge mansions with beautyful gardens, short-cut lawns and broad boulevard-like roads. Just take a walk through this nice living area.

    All 'bout Steamboats

    by KaiM Updated Jan 8, 2003

    The Steamboat Hall of Fame

    In the late 19th century and the early 20th century steamboats were riding up and down the main streams of the nation like the Mississippi, the Missouri and the Ohio river. Lots of those boats became famous because of different incidents. Some were smashed by floating ice, some sunk, some burned, and of course some were funtioning until retirement and the invention of new engine technologies. To honor all those legendary steamboats, a Steamboat Hall of Fame was established at the Ohio riverfront in Cincinnati. On each of the many chimney-like poles you can read about the history of another steamboat. No entry-fee. The Hall of Fame is basically just a walkway at the riverfront. But very interesting. I took my time to read the information on each of the poles and learnt a lot about the steamboats - and the American history.

    Florida is a very flat state....

    by surfNsmiles Written Aug 26, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Florida is a very flat state. One thing that I really miss about Cincinnati is mountain biking through the trails of Tower Park. Tower Park is loacated about 10minutes south of downtown Cincy. The single track trails can get pretty harry at some points. Whenever I go, I expect to wreck at least half a dozen times ... so wear your safety gear! There's this one time that we had to fish my bike out of a tree (if you would like to hear about the details ... just drop me an email).

    Here's the info on the place:
    Tower Park is technical, obstacle laden and hilly but only 10-15 minutes from Cincinnati. Check out reviews of these paths at www.single-track.com. 606-441-4226

    Directions: (from Cincinnati) I-471 South to the US Rt. 27 exit. Turn left onto US Rt. 27. Turn left onto Grandview Avenue. Turn left onto Ft. Thomas Ave. Turn right on Tower Place and follow signs to park.

    Ohio river.
    Crossing the OHIO river coming from Cincinatti, you end up in Kentucki. To me it felt like going back in time (resembles the style as in the 'back to the future' movies).
    I must admit not feeling very safe in that area, but it could have been me.

    Below the Train and Overpasses are several leftovers from the earlier industrial age, that have been turned into art. This is located west of Brown Stadium, just off Pete Rose Way.

    I haven't been here yet, but here's an overhead photo.

    It's located just across the border in Indiana. The casino portion is the part that floats. Gambling can only be done 'on the river.'

    If you're driving North on I-75 between Cincinnati and Dayton, near mile marker 26, look out for this statue!

    It scared me when I first saw it!!
