I'll be going to the Saints Game next weekend...what should I check out in Cincy?
#1
Greetings fellow Bengals Fans - I'll be making the 4.5 trip from Pennsylvania to Cincy to watch the Bengals beat the Saints next weekend. We'll likely head through Columbus as I have a cousin there.

What sites/attractions around Cincy should I check out? Any food recommendations? Parking recommendations at the stadium? Anything in the stadium that I must see?

Really any guidance that you can provide is greatly appreciated!

Has the time away calmed your nerves a bit?

I know when I stepped away from the boards, it helped out.

Anyways, Montgomery Inn I second, but also check out one of the many Skylines and/or Gold Stars.

If you have time, head down to Over the Rhine, as there's lots to do.

Hope you're well, Pistons.

Jack's casino is a good idea. I'd send you to golf courses but the season is wrong. Try LaRosa's if you get a chance. Graeter's ice cream. A UDF shake. Skyline. Gold star. If you want a nice sit down lunch or dinner..Century Inn. Another historic restaurant..more expensive...Golden Lamb in Lebanon.

I don't know any of the attractions in the Cincy area. Just wanted to say welcome back!

Not much to see inside OR outside Paul Brown Stadium. They do a good job with the landscaping outside. But don't look for any statues, plaques, or ring of honor anywhere. Mikey doesn't do that. Whatever

If you like Old School Italian food you could try Pompilios Restaurant located across the River from the Stadium in Newport Kentucky.

It was founded in 1933 and a portion of the Movie "Rain Man" was filmed there with Tom Cruise & Dustin Hoffman.

The scene where Dustin Hoffman counts the dropped tooth picks was filmed there.

I think they have a Sampler dinner that is labeled as a "Cast Favorite" of the Rainman Movie Cast that I have had in the past.

It is very good and filling. Not that expensive. Maybe $20 per person with a drink.

It is a little hard to find but not too hard. It is an old building on a corner lot where certain streets intersect.

You can Google map it.

Maybe watch the Rainman movie before you go to get pumped up for it.  Tongue

You could spend your whole stay downtown and never run out of things to do. Lot of great restaurants. Go to The Banks and/or Over The Rhine(OTR).

There are plenty of outdoor things to do in and around Cincinnati but the weather may have a say in that.

In fact if you want to see some cool statues and stuff like that, go down the street to Great American Ballpark. Lot's of memorabilia around there. I would say go into the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum but I read the other day that it's shut down for the winter for renovations.

The Banks (between both stadiums) has lots of restaurants and bars. Cross one of the bridges into Kentucky. If you cross the Purple People Bridge you'll come out at Newport on the Levy. That's where the Aquarium and good restaurants are.

Cincy has a good zoo or the aquarium in Newport.

Over the Rhine has cool restaurants, bars, and shopping. There are also a couple of really cool breweries in OTR (Rhinegeist and Taft Ale House (my personal fav)).

The banks has some cool more mainstream restaurants and sports bars. Morelein Lager House is a cool spot at the banks. The banks also has a cool park (if its nice out) right on the river and they also have the huge ferris wheel going on right now down there.

If you want fine dining for a night go to one of Jeff Ruby's restaurants...its unlike pretty much anything else. If you want casual hit up the montgomery inn boathouse or somewhere in OTR (my favorite is The Eagle). Also, get a donut for desert from Holtmans.

Stay away from Larosas. Most overrated Cincinnati food IMO. I agree aout Graeters and Skyline, though. You just have to experience those if you are in Cincinnati.

That's disappointing. One of my favorite things about going to different baseball stadiums has been seeing all the statues and what not.

I've been to Heinz Field and they actually have a ton of memorabilia including Super Bowl trophies.

What's the thing with Chili? So there is Skyline and a 2nd one?

Is there any toppings that are considered traditional?

Ang good in stadium food that the Bengals are known for? Probably chili right?

OTR has apparently changed since my days of running things in the Cincy burbs. It used to be where you went to the street corner,rolled down you window, and paid for a little manila bag. Or at least that's what I was told.

The chilli is usually served on Coney dogs or spaghetti and loaded with cheddar cheese and onions in either case.  Dogs also get mustard.  You can get a bowl of just straight chilli, but almost nobody eats it that way.

Rhinegeist. They have (had?) ping pong tables and cornhole boards to play along with very good beer. I've not been to MadTree 2.0 yet, but I've heard it's also awesome. I personally think Moerlein is mediocre.
I love mock drafts!
