My cousins were in town from Missouri. They have never been to Cincinnati, so I took them to the top of the Carew for good look around. I am pretty knowledgeable about our lovely city and was able to give them a pretty thorough overview from each direction. You really can see so much from up there. It's a cool... More

A little hidden treasure in Cincinnati. Probably one of the least expensive things to do in the city is the 49th floor Observation Deck.You can see for miles. Highly recommended! And don't miss looking around inside the building as well. Beautiful Art Deco Style.

Go to the top for a great view of Cincy. Take cash as that is the only form of payment. Well worth the $4.00 entry fee.

The observation deck provides a 360 degree view of downtown and the surrounding areas. Many locals don't even know that the deck is open to the public. It may be cash only so be prepared.

Go up the elevator to the top. Walk to the end of the hall and go up another (small, rickety) elevator. Go up a long flight of stairs and you are there. Great view.

Probably the greatest views in Cincy. Go to the top and enjoy.. On a clear day you can see for miles around. Worth the time explore. Not sure if it is open at night--but that would be beautiful too. Like the Hancock building in Chicago.

Gave really great views of the city and gave you a perspective of the whole place and that it is actually a lot bigger than you think, with lots of different districts. Good view of the river.

If you are into cityscape views, don't miss this one if you are in Cincinnati. You could see a lot of landmarks from here like the Great American Ballpark and the John A Roebling Bridge.Unfortunately, this place closes at 6pm so it would be difficult to capture those sunset pics.

This venue is nearly unknown. Visited on a perfect Friday with clear skies, no humidity and a 75 temperature. Its free to retired and active military as well. Don't miss it.

We went to this because we were staying in the same building. It does have a great view and the Fee of $4 per person is minimal, but it is a small area with absolutely nothing to do up there. So just be warned it is a quick trip.
