It's the Holiday Inn at 800 w. 8th St. in downtown Cincy.
Also, anyone else going to be around for the April 4-6 Cubs series? And is Bw3's still THE place for wings? And lastly, where's the best place to dance/have a good time?
Don't worry, the Holiday Inn you're at is fine. It's just over I-75 on the west side amongst some light industry. I can see it right now from my office window.
You want to visit the King's Island web site (www.pki.com
) before you make plans, I'm not sure when it opens.
Some other ideas (I'm a 'burbs guy working downtown and haven't experienced downtown nightlife for a while). Google searches for these places ought to yield more info...
Aronoff Center - Broadway-type shows.
Music Hall - Cincinnati Symphony and other classical music.
Taft Theatre - various rock and other shows
Bogarts in Clifton - great rock music club.
Union Terminal Museum Center - highly recommend it if you like museums, has an IMAX too.
Newport on the Levee/Riverboat Row - lots of restaraunts and bars.
Main St./Over the Rhine - lots of clubs and bars. I haven't been over there much so I can't comment. I've heard mixed things.
Arnolds - great bar, recommend it.
Rookwood Pavilion - lots of trendy shops, great shopping.
Krohn Conservatory - nice place for flowers, etc. I think the Butterfly show is going on through April, I recommend that.
Mt. Adams - more bars and restaraunts, great views.
Edit - And I'd pass on the Crosley Field replica in Blue Ash. It's kinda neat, but after 5-10 minutes, you've seen everything there is to see.
