Cincinnati: Hyde Park square
The clothes are the latest cuts, and the gifts reflect the newest trends, yet there's a delightfully familiar feel to shopping in Hyde Park Square. Begun in 1896, the square is seven miles northeast of downtown Cincinnati. It has large homes, unique shops and creative restaurants offering French pastries, crab cakes and create-your-own pizzas. The neighborhood also is basking in $1.25 million in lighting and sidewalk improvements.
