Once known as the “Queen of the West”, Cincinnati, Ohio is now known for it’s historical architecture, culture in arts and professional sports teams, The Cincinnati Reds (baseball) and Bengals (football). And it’s also my destination this weekend! That’s right, I’m heading to the big city of Cincinnati for Labor Day weekend.
I’m sitting now, in Denver International Airport, sipping my almond milk vanilla latte, trying to stay awake until my flight is ready to board. I worked a twelve hour shift last night, and am very much looking forward to my 3 hour flight to catch a few zzzz’s. And yes, I will still be able to sleep after 3 shots of espresso….for those who don’t know me, I could be a professional sleeper. 😝. I have planned a weekend full of parks, museums, farmers markets (most of which are free or cost under $10!!) and yes….there will be food. Lots.Of.Food. I have not been able to find a vegan Cincinnati Chili, but I’m sure it’s out there somewhere, and I will find it.
I’m staying in the central business district of downtown Cincinnati, blocks away from the Ohio River separating Cincinnati from Kentucky. I cannot wait to be roaming around a large city, being present in what this trip has in store.
Oh! One last thing, I may be meeting a new baby in my family this weekend, which could be the huge catalyst in me traveling to Cinci this weekend. I love having friends and family that live in other parts of the world, it gives you an excuse to travel 🤗
So check back often, as I explore Downtown Cincinnati Ohio!
