Cincinnati Nature Center

The Cincinnati Nature Center is like going back in time to 1898. There are acres of forests with natural mulched trails weaved around the historic Krippendorf home, another log cabin with period artifacts, tadpole & lili-pad frog ponds, daffodiles, and a beautiful indoor nature center. It is located east of Cincinnati, and the drive out there feels like a time capsal from big city to all natural times preserving the way it was... once upon a time. Read More »

Swaim Park

This is one of the most beautiful parks in Cincinnati. Swaim (although I'm not sure how to pronounce it's name) has two beautiful duck ponds with a fountain, big blooming trees in the spring, a paved walking or bike trail winding through the playground past the picnic tables over the tiny wooden bridge that stretches from one parking lot to the other parking lot which marks it's borders.

Bob Meyer Park

This is a great, safe, neighborhood public park next to the Rockwern Academy off Montgomery Road. It is big enough to tucker them out, but small enough to be able to actually have a seat on one of the two wooden benches and watch your kids play and play. Read More »

Bechtold Park

Yet another fun park to visit. There isn't much shade, but there are lots of things to do. There are several covered large picnic table areas, there are two large playgrounds (which we sometimes drive from one to the other), swings, basketball courts, and ... your child's imagination. Read More »

Duke Energy Children’s Museum

The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is home to three of the greatest Museums in the world - The Duke Energy Children's Museum, The Cincinnati History Museum, and The Museum of Natural History and Science. There is literally not enough time in one day to visit all three museums, but this museum is literally "Kids World" like you've never seen it before. Read More »

U.S. Grant Birthplace

Since we have had less than 50 presidents in the history of the United States, you would think that there would be only one president from each state. However, Ohio is known as the "Mother of Presidents" because 8 American presidents came from Ohio and Ulysses S. Grant is one of them. Read More »

McDonald’s in Loveland

This McDonald's is all about the indoor playcenter. It is worth a few more minutes in the car to have the same happy meal I could have 1 mile from my house, but... this McDonald's is the only one for miles where you can find the sun shine on your kid's face on a rainy day. Read More »

Dulle Park

Like a hide-away that not many people have discovered yet, this park is more than just a playground with covered picnic tables, it is also a natural playground with a small and "kid-friendly" creek for skipping stones. If the sun is out, and you're looking for a spot to park it in the shade... this is the peaceful park to go to. Read More »
