Behind the Scene Thoroughbred Tour
"Each tour starts at our main office which is located at the corner of Paris Pike and Johnston Road. If you are coming from Lexington it's the second entrance. Check in at the front desk and our tour guide will bring our mini bus around to pick you up. Only 24 people can fit on our bus so it's best to make a reservation in advance. At 9:00am the bus departs from the main office the two largest and original barns. They can house up to 300 horses each. Here it is likely you will see the horsemen hotwalking grooming or bathing their horse. It's all part of the daily activity. After passing C and D the bus will approach the two training tracks. Here you get off of the bus and stand railside watching morning workouts. It is likely an outrider or exercise ride this is your chance! The group spends 20 to 30 minutes railside before getting back on the bus to travel to the backside.While on the backside you will see our training gate where horses learn to break from the gate paddocks where horses spend their afternoons hay and feed stores and more barns. As often as we can we will walk through Barn 28 and talk with trainer Mike Cameron if he is available. We spend about 30 minutes in the barn talking about the horses we see

Mount Adams Tips (4)

Mt. Adams - Cincinnati's Montmartre!

Right around the corner from Eden Park & the Cincinnati Art Museum you'll find Mt. Adams, what I like to call the Montmartre of Cincinnati. When you've had your fill of art at the museum, fun in the park or Shakespeare in the Park, mosey on over to Mt. Adams for the best of the city:
great restaurants
great bars
great nightclubs
great jazz
great views
beautiful architecture
a lovely ramble along the winding, cobblestoned streets
a great place to jog in peace early morning/late evening

Mt. Adams feels like a safe haven, rarely do you hear of crime occurring up here, plus the vibe as you walk around is just great. This is one of the more upscale sections of the city as people pay a premium for the great views and wonderful ambience. Like Montmartre in Paris it feels like a village unto itself - a part of the city yet not part of the city.

Click on the link below to see a listing of all the restaurants, shops, nightclubs & taverns, churches, about the art museum & Eden park.

VISIT MT ADAMS IN CINCY - IT'S THE BEST

Mt Adams is a pretty area of historic homes and businesses snugly fit in among cozy, tree lined streets high above the rest of Cincinnati. It has an east coast feel - like Concord, MA or Alexandria just outside of DC - only on a smaller scale and higher. You can get terrific views of the city skyline and the Ohio river into Kentucky here. Try climbing the steps to the Holy Cross church or walk down Hill street for the view that residents get from their homes. You'll find a good selection of restaurants, pubs, and there's even a wine bar. Don't miss Eden Park just down the street.

Mt. Adams, Cincinnati's Greenwich Village

Mount Adams is a sleek, trendy neighborhood in older Cincinnati which features hip and funky bars, wine bars, cafes and restaurants. When celebrities come to visit Cincinnati they come here. The neighborhood isn't truly Bohemian, but it is unique, and features a number of interesting churches.

Mount Adams

East of downtown, is a hilly, winding neighborhood lined with old homes, restaurants, bars and some nice parks, museums and historical sites. Although I wasn't there at the proper time, I imagine the views of the skyline at sunrise are amazing. Ditch the car and explore by foot.

Pictured: Mount Adams as seen from the Carew Tower observation deck. I defintely want to explore this area more.
