Things To Do

We're so excited for you to explore our hometown. Below are a few recommendations for your down time.

Cinci Classics

Top of the list is Skyline Chili! Christine's favorite is the four way with onions or a cheese coney. Tyler is a fan of the chilitos and chili-cheese fries. Their Greek salad is also pretty good. Graeter's Ice Cream is another must-try. They're famous for their Black Raspberry Chip, but we both like their Chocolate Chip. Montgomery Inn is an award-winning barbecue restaurant. The Boathouse is their nicest location along the river near downtown Cincinnati.


This topic deserves it's own section... - Donatos: Christine's favorite pizza ever. Get the pepperoni. - Mio's Pizzeria: Tyler's favorite and where we met. His favorite is the classic pepperoni. - LaRosa's: another Cincinnati classic. Their cheese is pretty delish.


Often abbreviated to OTR, this area of downtown has a lot of great restaurants and bars! Below are some of our favorites: - Bakersfield: Tacos & Margarita - The Senate: Gourmet Hot Dogs - The Eagle: Chicken - Lost & Found: Craft Cocktails - Rhinegeist Brewery: Beer - Findlay Market: Cinci's version of Chelsea Market While you're down there, take a stroll around Washington Park.

The Banks

This area of downtown is right in between the Reds' and Bengals' Stadiums along the river. Take a stroll along Smale Riverfront Park or check out a few of the bars and restaurants: - Condado: Tacos & Margaritas - Moerlein Lager House: Beers & American Food - Yard House: High-End Spots Bar - Montgomery Inn: Famous Cincinnati BBQ If you're out late at night or around a Reds game, this is a lively area. Stop into Tin Roof for live music, or bars like Holy Grail and Jefferson Social.
