Fun for the whole family in the Cincy Region

Looking for an experience that has something for your whole family? Find it in Cincy. We’re a more bang-for-your-buck kind of city, simply bursting with affordable (and free) attractions and creative activities—you can make your Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky adventure one that is perfect for all ages, groups, and budgets.

The iconic Cincinnati Museum Center boasts an incredible, interactive Children’s Museum, an IMAX Theater, and different rotating exhibits. The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden: need we say more? Meet our world-famous hippo family, including adorable siblings Fiona and Fritz. If underwater is more your scene, the Newport Aquarium offers 17 exhibits for all your aquatic viewing pleasure. You’ll find thrills and fun just north of the city at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, home to one of only seven giga roller coasters in the world and a water park! To satisfy your need for speed indoors try Full Throttle Adrenaline Park in Florence, Kentucky. They offer VR adventures, Axe Throwing, Karting, and even a Rage Room. There's also Cincinnati Full Throttle.

Start off your day with a stop on the doughnut trail or brunching on the local favorite sausage and oat dish, goetta. Then, there is kayaking, rock climbing gyms, public art tours, Top Golf, go-karting, art museums, and public parks with biking and hiking trails—endless ways to fill your day with a uniquely Cincy Region excursion.
