High points for the bluff city
Cincinnati sits in a curve of the Ohio River, the metro area spilling south into Kentucky. Though paddleboats and barges are no longer the city's lifeline, the river remains a focal point. Downtown, you'll find the Bengals' and Reds' new stadiums, as well as the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, a powerful reminder that for escaping slaves, the river marked the entry to freedom.
But many of Cincinnati's other big attractions, such as the art museum, zoo and Union Terminal, are scattered around the city (population: 333,350). That means you'll spend some time in your car, but don't worry. Cincinnati offers pretty urban neighborhoods. Once you've oriented yourself, put away the map and wander a bit.
