Cincinnati Attractions

Our Favorite Cincinnati Attractions

At Tom Gill Chevrolet, we’re much more than a dealership selling superb vehicles — every member of our team is also a member of the community. We’re located in Florence, KY, but many people don’t realize that our dealership is just a quick 15-minute drive from Cincinnati, on the other side of the Ohio River. Not all of us live in Cincinnati, but one thing’s for sure: that great city across the river is part of our community. Whether you live, work, or just play in Cincinnati, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the number of things the city has to offer. From sports teams to cultural attractions to fun events all year round, there’s never an excuse to be bored here.

Sure, we’d love to sell you a car — but we also want to help everyone in our community make the most of the area. We’re going to periodically update our blog with some of our favorite things to do in the Cincinnati area, and we’ll be collecting the links here. Keep checking back to learn more about what this area has to offer!

Coney Island Park

Skip the trip to Florida and head to Cincinnati’s Coney Island Park. The park offers classic carnival rides, miniature golf, live music performances, and motor boat rides. On hot days, the park’s Sunlite Pool features the largest flat-surfaced pool in North America and several water slides.

Cincinnati Subway

Most Cincinnati residents aren’t even aware there is seven miles of subway tunnels underneath their feet. Construction began in the 1920s for a new transit system, but was never finished due to city squabbling and the Stock Market Crash. The tunnels have been surprisingly well preserved and tour groups are invited down to see one of Cincinnati’s best kept secrets.

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

The second oldest zoo in the country remains one of the best. Focused on conservation, the Cincinnati Zoo features incredible mammals, birds, invertebrates, reptiles, and fish. Don’t forget to save time for a stroll through the beautiful Botanical Garden.


Harriet Beecher Stowe House

Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin sent ripples through the country and started a national conversation that contributed to the civil war and the abolition of slavery. Stowe grew up in Cincinnati and her childhood home has been preserved to look just like it was in the 19th century. Tours focus on the life of Beecher Stowe, her family, and the home.
