Anyone live near or been to Cincy? Thinking about a weekend roadtrip before the end of the summer to see Great American Ballpark for a Reds game.  My kid is getting into roller coasters, so I know King’s Island might be fun to see.  Just thinking of spending a couple of nights.  People have said walking across the bridge to the Kentucky side is cool.  Skyline Chili worth it? Anything else to see?

The skyline chili is weird; it has cinnamon and chocolate in it. Goldstar has cinnamon and cumin and isnt much better in my opinion. 


If you like bourbon at all cross the bridge into covington and hit liqour city uncorked. It isnt the best place in the state but for the proximity they have an excellent selection. 


The walking bridge is cool as are the riverboat cruises 


Tony’s steak house is good if you dont mind dropping a few bucks and its not all that far from kings island. 


There is a great wolf lodge next door to kings island and kings island just opened camp cedar this season

Cincy zoo is cool i went there a few weeks ago with my daughter but i dont know that its any better than any other zoo. I think the Columbus zoo is the zoo to see in ohio.


Graeters ice cream is a thing if you like ice cream

Yeah, definitely could check into the ice cream spot. Appreciate it. Mostly focused on the Reds game and Reds HOF Museum downtown...trying to do the 30 MLB Stadiums. It's a long term goal.

I have lived just outside of Cincinnati almost my entire life. Definitely hit up a Reds game in Kings Island, you can get an entire day out of Kings Island and they do fireworks at night. Like Franchise said, graters is good for ice cream, also Montgomery Inn is the place to go for ribs if you’re interested. We like the Cincinnati zoo a lot, and if you are into breweries they are all over the place with lots of quality beers to try. There is also the Newport aquarium right across the river as well which is fun to spend a few hours in.

The Montgomery Inn is really good; I love the food and the feel of the place it reminds me of an old Vegas hotel.

Thanks boys. Was looking for hotels with a pool. Is it unheard of to stay across the river and walk over one of the bridges to go to a game? We did that in Pittsburgh and felt totally safe in the evening. Im checking out the Marriot in Covington KY.

About Skyline Chili - it's not "normal chili" and that's what makes it good. Think I read somebody above say its got some cinnamon in it, and I'm sure it does. The only real way to eat their chili and really enjoy it is over spaghetti. They give you a plate of spaghetti covered in chili with a giant handful of shredded cheddar on top and it's fucking great. My old man got the Chili Cheeseburger and you have to eat it with a fork and knife, it doesn't have a top bun but the same fistful of cheddar. All in all it was the best fast food pasta I've ever eaten and I would definitely go there again. But I truly don't call it chili in the most common sense of the word. It's like a spicy meat sauce.

Spicy isn't the correct word it has flavors and they are all bad. From what i understand skyline has cinnamon and chocolate in it and goldstar has cinnamon and cumin in it.Ive tried using each places hot sauce to make it taste better but they both have vinegar based hot sauce so it has a buffalo sauce style tang without any noticeable heat.

Yep you should be totally fine. I’ve never walked it before/after a game but I’ve seen plenty of people doing so over the years.

I don’t equate “spicy” to “hot”.  I equate it to flavor profile, and there is a LOT of shit going on with Skyline.  To eat as a chili it will never rank.  But as a ‘meat sauce’, it does just fine.  Much like NY Hot Dog carts use their “chili sauce” that you cannot even tell if you are eating meat or newspaper shavings, you just accept it for what it is.  But Franchise is correct, if you go into this expecting a bowl of chili to savor and enjoy, you’ll be disappointed.

We did that in Pittsburgh and felt totally safe in the evening. Im checking out the Marriot in Covington KY.I did exactly this for Opening Day, 2019. Stayed in Covington and walked back and forth, across the bridge. Never felt anything weird.

From my short stay, I recommend the Hotel Covington. Very nice, trendy, place. Good bar/restaurant in the lobby. A live music venue was a block away, plus a BBQ joint and Braxton Brewing within a few blocks.

I did notice that when I went east (from the main drag), there were a few homeless shelters and some...weird... structures. For instance, there was a broken-down, abandoned, house with debris everywhere. Looked like a bomb had gone off in it. Sitting in the middle of the debris was a shiny new foot locker. 

Oh, and when you're in downtown Cincinnati, the famous "WKRP intro fountain" is still there. "Baby, if you've ever wondered...."
