Arts and Entertainment

Cincinnati USA is a family-friendly city, and attractions such as the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens, the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, and Great American Ballpark were practically built for creating childhood memories to last a lifetime.

Arts lovers of all ages can’t help but be enchanted by our world-class museums and performing arts—and often the venue is as impressive as the art itself. Locals and newcomers agree that there’s nothing quite like enjoying a symphony in our historic Music Hall built in 1878 or experiencing modern art in the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid.

Cincinnatians wait all year for special events such as the chance to commune with butterflies at the Krohn Conservatory and run like the wind at the Flying Pig Marathon. And, wait till you see what happens here on Reds Opening Day! In fact, with the Reds, the Bengals, the Western & Southern Tennis Open, the Kentucky Speedway, and so much more, Cincinnati USA is undeniably a Professional Sports town.

To make sure you don’t miss any of the excitement, here’s our Cincinnati Bucket List—50 must-do local experiences in Cincinnati USA.

For the everyday experiences—everything from where to play a game of bocce to where to take a cooking class—check out our InsidersGuide to Cincinnati.
