Amber Potter

Amber Potter
Amber was born and raised in the Cincinnati region. She loves hot dogs and beer at Cincinnati Reds games, riding the Banshee at Kings Island and trying out all the new restaurants around town.

Describe the Cincinnati region in three words.
History. Underestimated. Picturesque.

Favorite Graeter’s ice-cream flavor?
Salted caramel. I'm also obsessed with their doughnuts!

Must-ride coaster at Kings Island?
Banshee and The Beast. (I actually really like the Backlot Stunt Coaster, too!)

Best spot for pre- or post-Reds game drink?
Moerlein Lager House or Yard House.

How do you order your Cincinnati-style chili?
3-way or cheese coney, no onions or mustard.

Favorite ArtWorks mural?
The Golden Muse.

Rainy day activity you’d recommend to a visitor?
Newport Aquarium or Cincinnati Museum Center are great to keep folks entertained for hours on a gloomy day.

Weirdest dish you ever tasted…and loved!
May not be weird for other people, but a seasonal cauliflower soup at Taste of Belgium.

Favorite hidden gem (that you’re willing to tell everyone about!)...
Vinoklet Winery. People don't think about the Cincinnati area as a place for wineries, but we have some very fun and picturesque urban and rural vineyards/wineries around town.

Can’t-miss annual event that you always attend?
Cincinnati Reds Opening Day. The city is packed with fans, energy and hope for a great season!

Best view of the Ohio River...
Carew Tower Observation Deck. 360-degree views of the whole region!

Most memorable concert you ever attended?
My first concert ever was Amy Grant at the Timberwolf Amphitheater at Kings Island with my mom, so that's pretty memorable.
