Hello everyone. Our family will be going to Cincinnati for a month for my husband's work soon. We have two young children under five and will be staying Downtown. My husband needs to get to Kennedy Ave in Cincinnati. I have looked up ways to get there by car using google maps and well as try to ask and read as much as possible on the area including looking through this forum. But a lot of the forums on safety seems to go back a few years. Is it possible for anyone to advise, how safe is downtown Cincinnati? Are there areas we should avoid? Should we be considering staying somewhere else? If so, can anyone recommend another place that is not too far from Kennedy Ave with kitchen facilities? How is the traffic going to and coming from Kennedy Ave via I-71, (going north from downtown) usually? Is there anywhere we should try to visit while we are there? (I've heard of the zoo, the museum). Should we visit Over-the Rhine? I don't mean to be rude or disrespectful, it sounds like a wonderful place, but I have read mixed reviews of the area. also, I'm a bit concerned about tipping. We Don't usually tip here and I don't want to offend anyone, so can you please advise when should we tip and how much? For example, should we be tipping the doorman as well as the person who helps us carry our bags? Are we supposed to tip taxi drivers? I know we're supposed to tip wait staff and delivery persons. how much should we tip them? Any advice & suggestions would be highly appreciated.
