Family-Friendly Trip Ideas for Your Ultimate Getaway!

Whether you prefer a family vacation with fun in the sun, like at Coney Island's Sunlite Pool, or feeding giraffes at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, you'll find the perfect adventure here in the Cincinnati region! Ride the camels and donkeys or take to the skies on the zip lines at Ark Encounter. For indoor fun, spend a day at the Duke Energy Children's Museum where the kids can burn off some steam in the interactive exhibits. Historic Loveland Castle is a must-stop for little explorers (and their parents): wander through the stone castle, ramble through the gardens—if you’re lucky you may even spot a castle ghost! There are plenty of free things to do, too, so you can have a lot of fun for not a lot of money.
