My family and I had never been to Cincinnati before, so we searched for a place to get a great view of the area. We were not disappointed! The tower itself is very nice, as well as the elevator to the 45th floor. After that, you either chose to take an extremely small elevator up to the 49th floor, or... More

Would be nice if they had more eateries, stores in this place. I heard they did once but got rid of them for a parking garage.

Awesome view of the city of Cincinnati, river, and Northern Kentucky. Very cool place to take tourists and locals should visit at least once.

Visited this place twice. Worth it to see around downtown and across the river in KY. On a clear day you can make out the coasters from Kings Island.

Right in our historic fountain square. You can take elevator to near top, then walk last 2 floors to overlook. Best view of the city.

Great place to cool off and look at this art deco hotel, now the Hilton. We did not know about the tower, not really advertised. We walked around the mall a bit, but found it deserted with only a few shops. But we were here for the architecture and decor. There is some artifacts and information in the lobby, got... More

This is not the easiest place to get to-parking is tricky on the street and it took some wandering to find the entrance. The building itself is 1920s art deco and is in excellent repair-the craftsmanship is stunning. You need to take an elevator to the highest floor, then take another, much smaller elevator up several more floors, then walk... More

Carew tour is a great example of Art Deco architecture. Come in for the shopping at the mall, then come up one level and marvel at the article tubal detail. The real gem , though, is the views from the top. Far a couple bucks, you get spectacular views and can pick up mementos in the give shop. *Warning, to... More

Neat to get a bird's eye view of the city and surrounding areas in Northern Kentucky. Spend all the time you want for a small fee.

Highest observation point in Cincinnati; minimum cost of $4 and you will have to walk up the last of 4 flights of stairs (49 total floors. The view is amazing and there is a 360 degree view from the top; on a clear day you can see for miles. Recommend bringing a pair of binoculars and a camera to enhance... More
