- Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens- This is a must do for the area. Lots of animals to see, including the famous hippo Fiona. The new gorilla world is amazing to see as well.

- Coney Island/Sunlight Pool- Another big summer favorite. Coney Island has all the rides and then hop on over to Sunlight pool to cool off. One reason this is a big favorite is unless you are going to ride or go in the pool you don't have to pay. This is great for parents who don't do rides, but want to take their kids to enjoy the rides without having to dish out a ton of money to do nothing. Tickets can be bought just for the pool, just for the rides, or both and they offer evening discounts for after 4pm. To buy your tickets or to check out the options and more visit coneyislandpark.com.
- Dart Rush- This is a new one we are really looking forward to checking out. Everyone likes laser tag. Well this uses Nerf Guns and have dart wars in a dart arena!! Doesn't that sound fun? It is located at Newport on the Levee and designed for ages 6 and up. You can bring your own blaster, or rent for them for an additional fee. The cost to play is $12/1 hour, $17/1.5 hours, and $22/2 hours. The rental costs are anywhere from $2-12 depending on the tier level of the blaster you choose.
