Findlay Market#7 in Best Things To Do in Cincinnati
- 5.0Food Scene
The Findlay Market first opened in 1855, but only just recently has it expanded into the vibrant mix of ethnic food stalls and flea market vendors that it is today. On the weekends in spring, summer and fall, the streets fill with vendors selling everything from jewelry to kettle corn to purses. You'll also find stalls devoted to goods like chocolate, fresh fruit, vegetables and artisan bread.
Many visitors recommend coming on Saturdays for the best experience — you can sample a variety of international fare while you people watch.
You'll find this market north of downtown Cincinnati in the Over-the-Rhine (OTR) neighborhood, mostly congregated on Elder Street. You can find several parking lots nearby, which you can use for a small hourly fee. In fact, there are lots on either side of the market between Elm and Race streets. The market is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. But we recommend visiting on the weekends for a view of the Findlay Market at its busiest and best. For more information, visit the market'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.
