Our Cincinnati photo opp bucket list features 13 iconic spots every Cincy kid needs to visit:
Cincinnati Municipal Airport (Lunken Airport) was Cincinnati’s main airport until 1947. When the 1,000-acre airfield opened in 1925, it was the largest municipal airfield in the world. Today, it flies mainly private aircraft, but kids will love looking at its old-school planes. 262 Wilmer Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45226
Jim Dine’s magnificent, twelve-foot-tall bronze sculpture, Pinocchio (Emotional), greets visitors at the Cincinnati Art Museum. It’s become tradition for Cincinnatians to pose with Pinocchio, outstretching their arms to the sky. 953 Eden Park Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45202
The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, originally known as the Cincinnati-Covington Bridge spans the Ohio River between Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky. When the Roebling Bridge opened to traffic on January 1, 1867, its 1,057-foot span made it the longest bridge in the world, a record it retained until 1883 when Roebling’s most famous project, the Brooklyn Bridge opened. This bridge is truly a sight to behold.
The “Sing the Queen City”, three-dimensional, painted aluminum sculpture was placed in Freedom Park along the Cincinnati, Ohio, waterfront in 2015. It’s a joyful reference to the last stanza of the poem “Seven Hills and a Queen to Name Them,” a poem by Chase Public. In the early 1900s, residents often referred to the booming new city along the Ohio River as the “Queen City of the West.” 25 E Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202
Cincinnati’s rich toy history is celebrated in a joyful ArtWorks Mural on West Court Street. Cincinnati-based toy titan Kenner Toys was founded in 1947 and created toys for popular franchises like Star Wars, Batman and Ghostbusters, plus pop culture favorites like Strawberry Shortcake, Play-Doh and the Easy-Bake Oven. The legacy of Kenner Toys is honored in this larger-than-life mural painted by local artist Jonathan Queen. 23 West Court Street, Cincinnati
