Help for a weekend - central without car, taxi ok

I am meeting a friend in Cincinnati and need to plan a few activites but without a car. Objective is to have some place to chat, while doing a little sight seeing. Would also enjoy attending mass at the St. Peter in Chains Cathedral ... so - please keep in mind distance- taxi ok, public transp. ok too.

- what is a good place to stay (I saw the Marriott, is this in an OK neighborhood?) - or a similar place

- What is a good breakfast/brunch place? I think a big lunch would be good.

- Looked at Eden park for a stroll - are there nice quiet places but not too secluded places to sit there?

- What about Carew Tower?

- How far is the ball park from there - and is it open daily for tours?

- How far is the Union Terminal from there - I just want to see the building.

- What would be a nice but inexpensive place for dinner? American food, steak OK - nice, not stuffy, and most of all, fairly quiet - need to be able to have a good conversation.

- What would you recommend after dinner?

ok, too many questions. Don't want to make it too busy, mainly have a little activity, lots of opportunity to sit down and chat with as little heat and as much peace and quiet as possible, and a nice inexpensive meal at the end.

New -ish to area

Would this be a conducive place to conduct an early business dinner meeting
with my boss of 3.5 years?
I am a work-aholic and tend not to get out much. I want to have the
meeting on my terms in a neutral place. My boss and I are on good terms.
But want to have a quiet thoughtful conversation about business
in more than the usual mid-chain setting.

Breakfast with the Characters at Kings Island  (1 Answer)

Hello, what do you guys think about Kings Island at Mason? My family and I are planning to go there and we have little kids with us. I went to their website and saw Breakfast with the Characters. The cost for Adult meal is13.9 and7.99 for Jr/Sr. It runs from 9:00am until 10:30am. There is also one complimentary photo with the characters. Considering park food is more expensive than food outside of the park, isn't this a good deal?

What is up with the flying pigs in Cincinatti?  (3 Answers)

I get why there are pigs everywhere; Cincinatti was very heavily involved in the pork industry. But why are they flying pigs?

I was told by someone that way back when, there was a barge floating through Cincinatti with a load of pigs going toward the slaughterhouse. There was substancial fog that day and it made it look as if the pigs were flying through the city. My Aunt said it was a nice story, but probably untrue and I cannot find anything on line to corroborate what I've heard.

Does anyone know where I can book a room with a jacuzzi? (Not a modified bath tub)It doesn't have to be ultra ultra but it should be at least ***. Regular internet search options don't seem to work well for finding something of this nature. I'm also looking for good brew pubs that not only brew beer but serve great food.

West Cincinnati - Indiana  (1 Answer)


I’ll be attending a vocational training course in Lawrenceburg, Indiana during the month of March.

Can anyone recommend a decent budget hotel for this long term stay? I don’t need a pool or fitness center or anything like that; just a clean room in a safe area within a 30 minute commute of Lawrenceburg. Also, I just need a table for my homework and possibly a refrigerator for some munchies.

I posted on but only got shared room responses. Not really interested in that but a short term studio apartment rental would be great.

35 minutes for transfer at Cincinnati Airport  (6 Answers)

My son needs to go to the US for a short trip to the East and West coast. The travel agency made him a offer which sounds good, but:
The last leg of his trip will be from San Francisco to Cincinnati, then to Frankfurt. Both flights are with Delta, but there are just 35 minutes between landing and take off again. I don't know Cincinnati Airport, but to me that seems to be impossible. He can check his bags through, but usually the gates close 30 minutes before take off. Do you think there's a reliable chance for him top catch his flight? He has to decide by tomorrow if he books the flights.
Thanks for any help.

How about meeting us and CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) for dinner, Thursday, August 4.

CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) will be visiting with us for a couple of days the first week in August, so we are inviting other Cincinnati/Dayton area VTers to meet us for dinner on Thursday evening, August 4, 6:00 p.m. at El Rancho Grande in Sharonville. It's easy to find, at 11765 Lebanon Road, just south of the Sharonville exit off i-275, between I-75 and I-71. You can sign up at the posting I have made in the VT meetings section. I know it's a week night, but many of you should still be able to make it. Let's get together, meet, and welcome Jen and Ethan to our corner of Ohio. The more the merrier.
