Are you looking to plan the date of your dreams? Cincinnati is definitely the place to do it. These 5 unique date spots will show you why Cincinnati is one of the country’s best places to date.

Enjoy A Scenic Park

Eden Park, located on a hill just east of downtown Cincinnati, has everything you could possibly want for a romantic date. It is home to a free art museum, a beautiful and historic conservatory, a renowned theater, a reflecting pool, and spectacular views of the cityscape and Ohio River. You can either bring a picnic lunch to the park and have a day date (many couples do this on beautiful spring and summer days), or you can hit the adjoining Mt. Adams neighborhood for dinner at a trendy restaurant.

Enjoy An Evening Of Culture

Cincinnati has so many great cultural gems. For instance, did you know that the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest orchestras in the United States? And trust us, they are still going strong after all these years. The orchestra plays in the beautifully renovated Music Hall, an impressive music venue that was built in the nineteenth century. Few dates are better than a fancy dinner and an evening at the symphony. During the summer the world-renowned Cincinnati Opera performs in the Music Hall space. For culture vultures, this makes for a great date as well.

Enjoy A Day At The Zoo

The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens is a long running and well-regarded institution in the city. It has some rare animals that you are not likely to see at many other zoos, including white tigers. It also has beautiful grounds that are a joy to walk through–hand in hand with your date, of course. This is a great spot for a first date (with all of the interesting animals, you will always have something to talk about), or a stroll with someone you love.

Go Out For A Great Meal

For decades, Cincinnati’s culinary scene wasn’t especially noteworthy. That is not the case anymore. The food scene in this town has been written about in countless national publications, and the buzz only continues to grow. Why not check out this state of the art dining scene for yourself? Whether you are looking for fancy, white tablecloth dining, a trendy eatery, a unique ethnic restaurant, or some laidback comfort food, Cincinnati has got you covered.

Go On A Historical Tour

If there is one thing that Cincinnati has a lot of – aside from its (in)famous chili- it’s history. The city was founded in 1788 and the locals are proud of having a rich history that spans four centuries. It is not surprising then, that locals show off this storied past with historical tours. There are several fun historical tours that make unique and exciting date activities. Check online to find one that seems interesting to you and your date. Who said dates can’t be educational?
