Queen City Underground Tours
Queen City Underground Tours provides a unique opportunity for beer aficionados to step into the history of Cincinnati’s past. Visit America’s largest set of historical landmarks with a stroll through Over-the-Rhine as you make your way to the Gateway District. There, you can take in over 130 saloons, bars, and beer gardens that were frequented by entertainers like Buffalo Bill Cody. Then, descend underground to explore crypts and tunnels located beneath the city that played a part in its brewery past before the tour concludes in a modern brewery.
If you prefer artisanal food over ale, Findlay Market is the perfect place to visit while you explore Cincinnati. Located in Over-the-Rhine, shoppers can stroll through 19th-century historic buildings while browsing over 40 indoor markets. Come in April through November, and you’ll be treated to an additional outdoor farmer’s market with vendors and outdoor performers.
National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
If you’re a history buff spending a day in Cincinnati, we recommend paying a visit to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Exhibits are dedicated to exploring the slave trade in America, celebrating the heroes of the Underground Railroad, and American Civil War, and fight to abolish slavery. In addition to exploring America’s past, the museum is also dedicated to shining a light on modern-day slavery and human trafficking as it exists throughout the world.
