Was down here on Labor Day weekend for the fireworks! It was very nice and they have a lot of little touches that make it a nice place to hang out.

Landed up in Cincinnati's Riverfront and had a great time! There's plenty of places to eat and shop. The riverfront is super cool and near to the stadium.

Great views and walk. Goes along city park, stadiums, restaurants. Offers city skyline views, and attractions for kids and adults (although attractions are considered part of the city park, I recon, which is reviewed separately).

Yes, there are ferry type boats that will take you on a tour. I believe they are about $7. very enjoyable and informative. Water taxis too. They have carriage rides in town and a trolley car.
