The Cincinnati Art Museum contains more than 60,000 works from across 6,000 years of history. Masterpieces by Sandro Botticelli, Claude Monet and other famed artists adorn the walls of the museum. And all of this art is housed in a building that was erected at the close of the 19th century; though it has undergone several additions and restorations, the structure stands as one of the city's historic  and simply beautiful  gems.

As well as complimenting the museum's extensive collection, past visitors also hail its locale, calling the building "stunning." Meanwhile, others were impressed with the views of downtown Cincinnati. 

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; on Thursdays the museum stays open until 8 p.m. Admission and parking is free, though special exhibitions do cost. You'll find the museum in northeast Cincinnati, nestled inside Eden Park near the Ohio River. For more information, visit the museum's website.

#1 Eden Park

On a nice, sunny day, Eden Park lives up to its paradisiacal name. Located next to 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.
