Ohio is an amazing state, which is steeped in rich cultural history. The state has many big and interesting cities that are all worth visiting. But if you ever land in the Buckeye State on a short trip, make a point of visiting Cincinnati. This is one of the most awesome cities in the state. There are very many fun attractions in this city. You can visit the countless museums, sample the local cuisine, join the vibrant nightlife, or bask in the many clean public parks that dot the city. I had a wonderful experience in this city last year. I did all of the above and more. If you really want to enjoy yourself in Cincinnati, OH, you should take a tour of the city to see some of the famous Ohio landmarks that are located here. I visited the following landmarks and it was true revelation.
Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum
Covering over 730 acres, the Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum is the second largest cemetery in the United States. The cemetery is actually recognized as a US National Historic Landmark. Of the 730+ acres, 400 are perfectly landscaped and maintained. There are 12 water ponds in the cemetery and many fine and memorial tombstones. You will find one of the best Gothic Revival architecture in the Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum. With its rolling lush grounds and well manicured gardens, the cemetery is a nice place to go for a quiet walk. You can also check out some of the famous people who have been buried here. The Arboretum has a huge variety of native and exotic woody plants.
John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge
Originally known as the Cincinnati-Covington Bridge, the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge connects Cincinnati, OH and Covington, KY via the Ohio River. The bridge is an architectural marvel and one of the oldest in the country. The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge is used by pedestrians to access the Northern Kentucky business district. Sports fans use the bridge to access popular stadiums like the Paul Brown Stadium, the Great American Ball Park, and the U.S. Bank Arena. You can visit the bridge to check out its amazing construction. You can also use it to cross to the neighboring Roebling Point, to enjoy its many bars and restaurants.
Great American Ball Park
The Great American Ball Park is the new home field of the Cincinnati Reds. You might remember this ballpark from the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The Great American Ball Park is worth visiting for many reasons. For starters, you can be lucky enough to catch a game in the stadium. Secondly, there are very many fine features and amenities in and near the ballpark. Some of the most amazing features include the bas relief carving at the entrance, The Spirit of Baseball, the Mosaics panels, the sixth largest in MLB Scoreboard, the Pete Rose 4192 Mural, the Power Stacks, and many more. There is also the Rose Garden and the Riverboat Deck for private parties. And while you are in the area, you can visit the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum to see an extensive display of baseball memorabilia.
