Six Things To Do In Cincinnati & NKY During The Spring
I know that everyone is excited about spring, but I’m seriously pumped about it! I have all of these things I want to do and the list goes on and on. Here’s just a sampling of what I’d like to accomplish this spring.
1. Every Cincinnatian knows that one of the best days of the year is opening day for the Cincinnati Reds. It’s fun, everybody in the town acts like it’s Christmas and it’s glorious.
2. Go to the zoo. It’s Tunes and Blooms month in April. That means you can go to the zoo and listen to some live music… for free! It’s one of my favorite things to do in April. Grab a beer and see some amazing animals and listen to some live music. It’s fun and cheap.
3. Stop by Eden, Washington, Smale and Ault Park and take a look around. I love parks and while I don’t do it that often, I also really like to hike and take walks in them. Smale Park especially does a great job of planting gorgeous flowers and they have bench swings that are fun to sit in. Washington Park will also be starting their event calendar in April, so be prepared for free fun and events. Also, it might sound a little peculiar but head over to Spring Grove Cemetery as well. It really is a treat to see in the spring time, and everything there is wonderful.
4. Eat outside. I am a Barleycorn’s lover and when it’s spring time I anticipate the day that I can eat outside. I’m also looking forward to eating outside at the Incline Public House. In my last post I mentioned my love for the brunch, but the views there are amazing and so is the food!
5. Go to Findlay Market. So Findlay is open during the winter, but it really blossoms (Pun intended) in the spring time. I’m a huge fan of Dojo gelato and their fresh produce. If you’re looking for great organic food and something to do on a Saturday, you must go! They have a free wine tasting on Saturdays, cute unique items from local vendors and did I mention the gelato!
6. Go to King’s Island. I love roller coasters. I can ride each ride a few times and still come back for more. While King’s Island can cost you a pretty penny (Actually way more than a penny), it’s worth it. I plan on seeing if I can go to King’s Island on a workday this year and ride all of the rides. The weekends are always packed, so plan accordingly. They do have a new fast pass system, but if you can go before school lets out for summer and try to plan going on a workday, it is fantastic. Gates open April 18th!
What’s your favorite thing to do in the spring?
