The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber presents
Discover Cincinnati to help you learn more about your city.



Cincinnati might be a city you know and love, but you can know and love it even more with Discover Cincinnati

 

Presented by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, this four-session program takes you on a journey through and about the Greater Cincinnati region like no other program has before. It kicks off April 4 with an exploration of "Metropolitan Cincinnati from 30,000 Feet."

 

The second session starts all the way up at the top of Carew Tower and includes a walking/bus tour through the city to show you "Where the Past and Present Meet the Future." Local historian Dan Hurley serves as your tour guide to explain three distinct types of city that Cincinnati has embraced, from a densely populated center city to a city of neighborhoods to a city on the move with the 275 beltway.

 

This seven-hour tour with a lunch break at Pompilio's offers a full day of insight into your city's past and present, whether it be the Ohio River dam system that actually stops the river from drying up or the riverfront block of land the city of Covington sold to the federal government for a dollar just decades ago. "The goal of the tour is to help people see how these things relate to each other and what it tells you about the dynamics of the community," Hurley says.

 

The third and fourth sessions really delve into the city's plans for the future and "Creating Quality Places in the Center City and Suburbs." The third session will be across the river at Molly Malone's in Covington, and the fourth session will head north of the city to Fairfield Town Center.

 

While Discover Cincinnati is set to come back for a second set of sessions in the fall, the spring session is limited to 50 participants, so you'll want to register before all the spots are taken. The $250 registration fee includes all four sessions, your spot on the bus and the Pompilio's lunch during the tour.
