Make sure you have some cash on you before making the trek to the top! Great 360 views of the city. A must see!

Old time stairs and elevators. Don't expect anything modern, but the view is great. Odd that they charge for it though. That's kind of a bummer.

On my recent visit I took the elevator to the top of Carew Towers to the viewing deck. It was magnificent. The views of Cincinnati ad Kentucky were fantastic.

This is a must see if you like beautiful Art Deco buildings. The arcade (not video game arcade) is beautiful. Behind the security/welcome desk is a bank of elevators that will take you to the top of the Carew Tower. Actually, you will have to...More

The observation deck offers great views of all the downtown and surrounding Cincy area. It costs $4 (adult) to enter and cash only. You can take one elevator for 45 floors and then a very small elevator for a few more then you walk one...More
