In the fall and winter, the Cincinnati Bengals football team is an even bigger draw. Both teams play home games in downtown Cincinnati and the environment for all the games is family friendly or perfect for a couple on a date. The Bengals play in Paul Brown Stadium and the Reds play in Great American Ball Park. Both facilities are only a few years old and offer fun for the entire family.

    The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens are a wonderful place to visit anytime of year. In the winter, go at night and enjoy the Festival of Lights at the zoo. In the summer, stroll the lovely grounds and explore the Africa exhibit and stop by the Elephant Reserve.

    A visit to the Krohn Conservatory is another prime opportunity to explore in Cincinnati. These lush botanical gardens also offer revolving butterfly shows, perfect for kids! Guests can mingle with beautiful and exotic butterflies.
