Getting Around Cincinnati

The best way to get around Cincinnati is by car. Pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods and popular things to do are spread too far apart to see solely on foot. If you'd prefer not to drive, you can opt to take the tourist line on the city's Metro bus, which makes stops at many of the city's most popular attractions. There are also several taxi companies to call, in case you're in need of one.
