Carew Tower is one of those hidden gems smack dab in the middle of the city. It was on our 'to do' list for years but then when we were looking for something to do we would forget about it. Well, we finally went one day and it was fun-fun-fun. It is fun getting up to the top and the... More

Great view and only a small admission fee. You take the elevator up to the 45th floor, then walk around the corner to a smaller elevator to get to the 49th floor. Be aware that the observation deck is outdoors so save this visit for a nice day.

$2 for adults to see great views of Cincinnati, Ohio and neighbouring Kentucky. You have to get the elevator to floor 45 and then transfer by another elevator to floor 48 and walk up one more floor to floor 49 where the views await you!!!

You can't beat $2 a person for this view. You go way up and can see the world. Go on a clear day there will be no cover from the weather. Keep in mind windy up there.

Joined to the Hilton Hotel you can view the beauty of the design of both. Go to the roof and get the best view of Cincinnati. It only costs $2 and little bit of effort to climb the stairs but the result is priceless. A definite Cincinnati must-do.

We had some time to kill on a road trip and found this spot on TripAdvisor. It was a nice find and very affordable at two dollars each. The little elevator is not a big deal. We entered by the subway restaraunt and found it to be well marked from there. The view is unobstructed in all directions, the only... More

Visiting family in the Cincinnati area and was looking for something to do that didn't cost a small fortune and remembered the Carew Tower. We hit it on a wonderfully clear day and could see for miles! Fun little elevator ride for the last few floors but only about 3 adults can fit into it. Some of us took the... More

Went to Cincinnati for business... staying in one of the biggest metropolitan on the east coast... the city centre looked so desolated.... And since there aren't many things going on here... I would strongly recommend Carew Tower... the panorama is sooooo beautiful... you can see the river, Kentucky and even fall colors during the season.. The fee is almost nothing..... More

There is an outdoor observation deck at the top of Carew Tower and it was sooo nice. We were able to see almost all of town and over into Kentucky. Cheap at $2 for this nice view.

A coworker of mine took me up to the tower while showing me around the city. WOW what a view. The way up is high let me tell you. You take the main elevator to level 40 something (I honestly cannot remember how many floors there are) and then you take a VERY OLD VERY TINY elevator to level 40... More
