We were staying at Dayton ,Ohio and CINCINATTI was at  close to 45 min drive from the place we lived.So one weekend we decided to have a day out at Cincinatti.WE thought of covering the “coney island” mainly and spend less time at the  city and downtown; but  happened the vice-versa.It turned out to be nice  day out.Some of the important places which we visited are:

Cincinnati zoo and botanical garden:This zoo has a variety of animals which includes even the endangered species like white tiger and Felines.Botanical gardens also are a worth watch with few of the rarest collections of perenialls ,trees and shrubs.

National underground Railroad freedom centre:-This is one of the important places to visit ,with a unique theme of supporting the “freedom “concept and resisting “slavery “and human trafficking.There is an exhibition entitled against slavery and human trafficking including forced labor,sex trafikking child labor ,etc named as “Invisible”whcih is a must watch.

Down town :Cincinnati down town has 3rd 4th 5th streets as main points of interests and the down town tour can be accomplished either by a “Holley Jolley” trolley or by a traditional ,well decorated horse carriage driven by professionally dressed man/woman.Down town has a lot of buildings to be seen like the carew tower,Scripps center,fifth third bank building ,Macy’s plaza,union terminal.Some of the important places to visit in downtown :
