Want to experience some hidden gems of Cincinnati? A rental car in the city will help you have a more ‘off the beaten path’ experience. While Cincinnati may not be one of the most famous cities the US has to offer, it contains a trove of lesser explored attractions and there’s plenty to provide an interesting and amusing trip for all. Whether you want to bask in stunning gardens, walk to another state, or tantalize your taste buds with some of the region’s finest foods, you’ll be sure to fit it all in with a rental car in Cincinnati.
What is Cincinnati renowned for? One of the city’s main pulls definitely is the abundance of art galleries, with paintings and sculptures ranging from classic over contemporary to very whacky! For one, the 21C Museum Hotel is an Art Gallery inside a hotel. Then, there is the Cincinnati Art Museum, which boasts a wing with 400 pieces created by local artists. Alternatively, you can visit the Taft Museum of Art, which mimics a historic house. All in all, there are many other museums to fuel your historical desires, so why not purchase a combination pass for the Cincinnati History Museum, the Museum of Natural History, and the Science and the Duke Energy Children’s Museum? In case you are craving something completely unique and profound, take a walk around the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, which demonstrates the history of slavery and the formation of liberty.
Once you’ve finished exploring the fascinating heritage of this city, take to Hyde Park Square for some shopping, or head ‘Over the Rhine’, which is a hip downtown neighborhood full of unique shops, places to eat, and delicious craft coffee spots. A great place to stock up on Cincinnati souvenirs is the historic Findlay Market, which is a set against a backdrop of delightful old buildings. The market stocks everything from scrumptious food to pet accessories and is open every day of the week except for Mondays.
Your rental car means that you have the ideal chance to explore some of the region’s hidden gems. Loveland Castle is a beautiful spot with stunning gardens and fascinating architecture, and the art deco train station, Union Terminal, boasts an impressive fountain and stunning ceilings. Or why not take a drive to the Purple People Bridge, where you can cross a state border and spend the afternoon in Kentucky?
However, be sure to not leave Cincinnati without sampling its glorious food scene. If you fancy meat, try some ribs with barbecue sauce or a pulled pork platter at Montgomery Inn. Or, if you’ve got a craving for sugar, choose one of 20 unique flavors of ice cream at Graeters, for example the black cherry chocolate chip. For something completely unique, why not sample some of the renowned Cincinnati chili with spaghetti or in an omelet? No matter what your taste buds fancy, you’ll absolutely find something to savor in this city.
