Landmarks & Landscapes

The Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region is filled with remarkable landmarks, cityscapes, river views and rolling hills. Many of the landmarks are the perfect destination to take in a view of the surrounding landscape.

Classic Cincinnati Region Landmarks

Two signature Cincinnati places to visit are both foodie- and kid-friendly. Findlay Market, one of the oldest public markets in the country, serves up specialty groceries and bites to eat. And for fun events, dining al fresco, and musical performances, head to Fountain Square, the unofficial heart of the city.

For some of the best views of the surrounding landscape, head to the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge—once the longest suspension bridge in the world, and the model for Roebling’s other masterpiece, the Brooklyn Bridge. For a view from even higher in the sky, the Carew Tower Observation Deck rewards you with 360-degree river and city views, and is itself a National Historic Landmark (check out other great views here). If heights aren’t your thing, see the region from a different perspective from the water on a classic BB Riverboats tour.
