American Sign Museum#14 in Best Things To Do in Cincinnati
The American Sign Museum has an interesting way of tracing America's history — via signage. Here, you'll find everything from a Phillips 66 sign to neon bar signs to old movie posters and more. As the museum's website relates, signs "reflect the history, technology, commerce, and culture of our communities. Signs and the sign industry have their own stories to tell."
One TripAdvisor user, who found the museum fascinating, offers a recommendation: "Take the tour with the owner of the museum ... he really makes it all come alive!"
The American Sign Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sundays, from noon to 4 p.m. Adult admission costs $15, while children ages 12 and younger can enter for free with an adult. Entry for seniors, students and those in the military costs $10. We recommend planning to visit the museum at either 11 a.m. or 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday or at 2 p.m. on Sunday so you can enjoy a guided tour (included in the price of your ticket). You can ensure your place in the tour by ordering your tickets in advance online. You'll find the museum in Cincinnati's Camp Washington neighborhood, north of the downtown area. For tickets and more information, visit the museum's website.

#1 Eden Park
On a nice, sunny day, Eden Park lives up to its paradisiacal name. Located in the trendy Mount Adams neighborhood, the park encompasses 186 acres of green space and tree groves complete with walking paths. There are also a couple of lakes, a magnolia garden and several scenic overlooks.
One TripAdvisor user was blown away by Eden Park's setting, saying it has "beautiful views of the city — especially at night time." However, some travelers say that the park is a little hard to find. To get there from downtown, drive north on Gilbert Avenue until you reach Eden Park Drive. You can also just call a taxi. For more information, visit the Cincinnati Parks website.
