Just getting to the top is an experience because you have to switch elevators near the top, and there are still stairs after that. It's inexpensive and a great four sided view, try to go on a clear day.

Wow, what a view. We recently went up and it was such a pretty view of the city. I have lived here my entire life and it certainly gives a new view of the city. The one elevator only goes up a certain distance and then you have to get off to get on another. The elevator only goes up... More

This was our first trip to Ohio. We were visiting family for a birthday party but got to play tourist for a little bit. Our one stop was the Carew Tower. It was the best way to see the whole city. Very cool and I highly recommend it!

If you're in Cincinnati, work this into your plans. Great old building. The 360 degree view is priceless. Plenty of room at the top. Be careful. You will be outside once you step through the doors. There is a brick wall and railings all the way around but you'll be surprised that its wide open. It's a heart pounding experience... More

This is the tallest building in the city. You get a panoramic view of Cincinnati from the top. Cost is $4.

We went up to the observation deck of the Carew Tower which is 49 floors or about 490 feet up (The Empire State Bldg is 102 stories). The cost is $4.00 per person to go out on the viewing deck. It's a great place to get a panoramic view of the city and Northern Kentucky. It was a bit foggy... More

Climb to one of the highest viewpoints in the Queen City. Not only are the views fantastic but the building itself is a art deco masterpiece. My favorite is the Rookwood pottery that surrounds the entrances.

what a view!! Two elevator rides to the 50th floor. We were there as a storm rolled in from the east. Awesome view from the top!! We walked around the top, for about 10-15 minutes, with about 10 others, saw a fantastic view. We were able to see the storm approach us, and took cover as it arrived. There is... More

Be sure to make a trip up to the Observation Deck. The views of downtown are some of the best you'll see. There is a fee to get to the observation deck ($5).

Lived in Cincinnati most of my life...but just recently went up to the observation deck on top of the Crew Tower. My two daughters (7, 10) and I were eating lunch downtown when we decided that afterwards we would try the observation deck. The girls loved the building inside and loved the view outside. Was neat to see the city... More
