Sightseeing in Cincinnati - what to see. Complete travel guide

Cincinnati at Sunset Cincinnati occupies a special place among oldest American cities. It belongs to the cities of the US which have started the history of the country. A pig is the symbol of the city and it really deserves this title. Pig has been chosen not only because of local pork that is very famous. It was pork fat that gave the start to the "beauty industry" of the country. Nowadays the headquarters of the world's largest cosmetics companies are located here.
The city stands on the Ohio River, which pure and clean water is the true pride of the townspeople. Moreover, the struggle for the purity of the river has become a matter of honor for every citizen of Cincinnati. The neighborhood of the city and the bank of the Ohio River are really great places to stroll and relax.
Among the sights of the city that are worth mentioning the U.S. Air Force Museum. Here you will be able to see transport and combat aircraft and missiles from virtually all parts of the world. Some argue that the collection of this museum is the largest in the world. You visit to the city’s zoo will be also very interesting. The booklets tell that you will need at least one week to explore this wonderful place. Of course, Kings Island Entertainment Center remains the main place of pilgrimage for tourists. Here you will find almost a complete collection of fascinating modern attractions. Finish your observation of the city by visiting the famous fountain. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
The most unusual historical symbol of the city is the suspension bridge named after Johann Röbling. It was constructed in 1866 and was the longest suspension bridge in the world by the time it had been finished. The length of the bridge is 322 meters. Exactly by its example, the famous Brooklyn Bridge was constructed.

At one time, it was decided to build the underground in the city and huge investments were made in this project. However, it was not implemented and closed after building several underground tunnels. The unfinished underground has been preserved to this day. Today, its tunnels are the popular tourist attraction.
The city is also distinguished by its spectacular religious constructions. The most beautiful site from an architectural point of view is St. Peter’s Church. It has a fascinating design and resembles ancient Greece temples. The project author was famous American architect Henry Walter who projected this fascinating church in the neoclassical style.
Cincinnati sunset Another interesting example of the Moorish style is the Plum Street Temple that was built in 1866.
