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

We enjoyed the view from the top of Carew Tower. Small(and I mean small!!) elevator takes you the last few floors to the top. Best view for me being a Bengals fan from CT was that of Paul Brown Stadium.

I love older preserved buildings and the 1930 Carew Tower is a great example of early 20th Century Art Deco. The lobby evokes a past era. Though it is a 49 story office building with a top floor observation tower, it was eerily quiet on...More
