City rentals for families and couples

Hometown to the legendary Steven Spielberg, Cincinnati is Ohio's third-largest city, one that enjoys its picturesque location along the Ohio River. Whether it's the hot chili you're after or nighttime views of the divine skyline, this city leaves an indelible mark on all who visit. It's easy to navigate too thanks to an extensive bus network and the nifty little Cincinnati Bell Connector - a modernized streetcar service. Vacation rentals cater well to families with kids, independent travelers, couples, and groups of friends.

Tasteful vacation rentals for all

The city boasts a range of well-fitted vacation rentals. The lively downtown district is the top choice for most travelers thanks to its proximity to attractions such as the Carew Tower Observation Deck, John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, and Fountain Square. Hipster cafés, restaurants, and nightclubs are another great reason to book a Holidu rental in the central district. Architecture fans meanwhile should consider renting in the Over-the-Rhine district located in the city's West End. Accommodation around Eden Park will fetch you quick access to the Cincinnati Art Museum, and Krohn Conservatory. Finally, for a quiet escape, try setting up base in the neighboring cities of Newport and Covington.

Vacations in Cincinnati

A vacation for everyone

A riverside with tons to do

Don't miss a customary photo op at the awe-inspiring John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, an engineering marvel that dates back to 1866. From here you can embark on the RiverWalk where water features, art installations, and even flying pig sculptures will keep you company. Baseball action waits at the beautiful Great American Ball Park home to the Cincinnati Reds, America's oldest major league baseball franchise. The city's green lungs, the Smale Riverfront Park is a local favorite for its giant foot piano, porch swings, and interactive fountains.

Where the nights are young

This is indeed a city that never sleeps! So come laugh yourself silly at Cincinnati's comedy clubs (Go Bananas highly recommended!). Try your hand at poker, unwind at a river-facing rooftop lounge bar or hop onto the brewery trail - there are over 40 breweries and distilleries at hand. The edgy Over-the-Rhine district pleases all tastes with live music venues such as MOTR, or 16-Bit Bar + Arcade with its 50+ classic arcade games. Craft beer connoisseurs will take to Rosedale, The Pony, and everyone's favorite - the Rhinegeist Brewery. How about a ghost tour at the Cincinnati Music Hall? This is a venue that has been declared haunted by paranormal experts.

Travelers and activities

Cincinnati for the art fiends

There's no dearth of public art as 52 of the city's neighborhoods flaunt a colorful assortment of murals. The stately Cincinnati Art Museum at Eden Park holds a jaw-dropping 67,000 artworks with the likes of Botticelli, Chagall, and Van Gogh making an appearance. In the vicinity is the Krohn Conservatory, an idyllic oasis worth strolling through. Designed by Zaha Hadid, the Contemporary Arts Center proposes thought-provoking, socially conscious exhibits, and there's a floor for kids too. A stone's throw away is Fountain Square, a fantastic spot for people-watching and street photography.

A fun-filled festival roster

March features the underground Bockfest where the city's breweries serve visitors the robust and rich-tasting bock beer. There's a cool parade too! Summer goes into overdrive with Brew Ha-Ha (comedy+beer fun), and the Bunbury Music Festival. A good idea is to plan your trip to coincide with Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, America's biggest Oktoberfest celebration. Downtown Cincinnati welcomes over 500,000 revelers - there's a German bratwurst, beer, and dachshund races to keep you enthralled. Come November/December and the city's local zoo boasts astonishingly beautiful lighted displays at the Festival of Lights. What a way to end the year!

Somewhere in the 1800s, Cincinnati was nicknamed the "Paris of the West" because of its abundant saloons, theaters and beer gardens.

Top 5 travel tips for Cincinnati

1. Animal time at Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

A landmark attraction since 1975, America's second-oldest zoo is home to over 3000 plant species and 500+ animals spanning Andean bears, Arctic foxes, and the wily bobcats and cougars. Top attractions include the Sunset Safari where you'll encounter these magnificent creatures in their habitat. The nearby Esquire Theater is perfect for indie film fans.

2. Go bargain hunting at Findlay Market

Shop till you drop at Ohio's oldest continually operating public market in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood. Try out the ethnic food options, or shake a leg with the live bands that play here during the summer. This is a photographer's delight for sure!

3. Ice cream and Chili

No one leaves without sampling the fiery Cincinnati chili served at Skyline Chili. These iconic cheese coneys trace their history to Nicholas Lambrinides, a Greek immigrant who watched his mother prepare Greek delicacies and eventually went on to set up the hugely successful Skyline Chili chain. Follow it up with a chocolate sundae or malt at Graeter's Icecream, a Cincinnati fixture since 1868.

4. King's Island and Soak City

A short drive will get you to King's City, an amusement park with heart-stopping rollercoasters, and even a Planet Snoopy to enjoy Peanuts-themed rides! The topical lagoons and slides at Soak City Water Park are highly sought after during summer.

5. Experience the city with a tour

Walking tours are passé - at Cincinnati, you can now survey the entire Northern Kentucky river area with a helicopter or hot air balloon ride. Or zip through the streets on an exhilarating Segway ride. A riverboat tour along the historic Ohio River is a fantastic way to bring your Cincinnati sojourn to a close.
