Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum#9 in Best Things To Do in Cincinnati
If you're a baseball aficionado — and especially if you aren't able to catch a baseball game at the Great American Ball Park — you might want to drop by the nearby Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum. This museum tells the story of the Cincinnati Reds' past with exhibits on famed players like Barry Larkin and Joe Morgan. There's also a movie theater that displays films about the Reds' history, and even a children's play area complete with a miniature Reds locker room.
One of the things visitors most enjoy about the Hall of Fame and Museum is its interactive exhibits — you can actually pitch and field balls inside the museum. A TripAdvisor user had this to say about her experience there: "The museum was neat. I enjoyed watching my husband try to throw a strike ball. Beyond hilarious. I would suggest anyone to go see if you haven't been before."
You'll find this attraction right next to the Great American Ball Park on Joe Nuxhall Way. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for students. There are discounts for seniors and active military; kids ages 4 and younger can enter for free. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Hall of Fame'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.
