Offering unrivaled variety, Cincinnati is the ideal destination for families and nature enthusiasts alike. Its attractions are diverse and its adventures are many. BBOnline urges you therefore to experience the fun.

Travel from your Milan Inn to this unique experience. The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is one of the city’s most beloved institutions and the afternoon will be devoted to exploring its many offerings.

There are six areas to discover here: the Historical Library, the Children’s Museum, the Railroad Club, the Natural History Museum, the Omniax Theater and the Cincinnati Museum. Each will delight. Learn of glaciers and cavern walls, steam engines and World War II strategies. The centuries can now be understood.

Cincinnati, Ohio 45211

Cincinnati getaways allow you to immerse yourself in more than the past. They instead offer beauty. Tucked within the city is an unexpected treat: Mt. Airy Forest. Opened in 1911, it is considered to be one of the first urban park systems established within the country and sprawls across almost 1500 acres. The entire day will be given to horseback riding, hiking and picnicking. Wander through marshlands and evergreen woods. Discover arboretums and natural gardens. And even partake in a game of Frisbee golf (which is sure to challenge even the most avid of sportsmen). Mt. Airy Forest is a can't-miss attraction. The park is open from dusk until dawn daily. Pavilions and lodge areas must be rented and should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
