Newport on the Levee
Newport on the Levee's new Bridgeview Box Park offers panoramic views of the Cincinnati skyline and riverfront area. Grab a meal or a drink from one of the many vendor windows (think food trucks on land) serving a range of culinary treats. The kids can play games while the adults relax and enjoy live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. If you want to be more active while taking in the view, walk or bike across the adjacent Purple People Bridge and you'll find yourself in Sawyer Point Park which connects to other riverfront parks in either direction.
Incline Public House
Feast your eyes and your stomach on this grub-with-a-view destination. Aptly named for its historic dwellings near the posthumous Price Hill Incline, Incline Public House's hilltop hideaway delivers sweeping scenes of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River. If find yourself waiting for a table, enjoy the view from Olden View Park just next door.
Find your way to the top of the grassy knolls at this beloved Northern Kentucky park and enjoy wide-angle views of the Cincinnati skyline, the Ohio River and even parts of Covington, Ky. Clusters of picnic tables and park benches make Devou Park an ideal locale for picnics and photo ops. Don't forget the frisbee!
Bellevue Hill Park
Tucked into a dense neighborhood near the University of Cincinnati, Bellevue Hill Park offers a magnificent view of the entire downtown Cincinnati basin. Plus, admire the historic architectural concrete cupolas that remain from a bygone era when this served as a depot for the Cincinnati Incline.
Twin Lakes at Eden Park
At Eden Park's Twin Lakes, it's all about the water view. Pick a shaded park bench and behold the mighty Ohio River. Scan to the left to see the river's famous "bend". Shift your gaze to the right to find the iconic yellow arches of the Big Mac Bridge (formally named the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge). Those grid-like clusters of homes straight ahead? That's Bellevue and Dayton, Ky.
