    Thanks for the tips. Will definitely try King Island and the aquarium.

    I think your 5 year old would love the Cincinnati Zoo you would probably enjoy it too. My grandchildren love the zoo.

    This tour guide might help.

    Bring your kid through Lex on the way. Whens the last time you saw Commonwealth? Or the new baseball stadiu. I think youd be shocked at some of the upgrades weve done on campus if you havent been back in awhile.

    Fortunately enough, I make the trip to Lexington a few times per year. I’m surrounded by Memphis and Tennessee fans where I live so I’m in brainwashing mode with the little one. But we might just stop through because I can’t get enough of big blue. Thanks for the post.

    Re: Hey guys. Cardinal fan with a few questions.

    If you have Diamond Club seats, they put out an excellent buffet about 90 minutes before game time. I'm sure you could call the stadium and find out specifics.
    I went once over a decade ago, but I remember it being fantastic, featuring: prime rib, pasta with shrimp and scallops, some chicken preparation, soups, salads, different veg preparations, fruit, fancy desserts.

    Day of the game, go early and eat there.
    They'll also have all the ballpark options, too, so you can get a hot dog or chicken fingers if your 5 year old eats like most 5 year olds.
    (Referring to Jack Hannahan signing with a Korean team)
    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    Wow I didn’t realize that about the food options. We will definitely get there early. Thanks so much

    All your alcohol, and other drinks are free as well. There is a full bar in the Diamond Club. Once in your seats there are servers who will come to you. Any ballpark food you want--nachos, peanuts, bratwurst, etc.-- is free. I would tip the server, though.

    Edited to add: I would call the park or go to the Reds website to double check details because again, I sat there once 13 years ago.

    Kroger has cheaper Kings Island tickets than the gate price by quite a bit. The Newport Aquarium on game day followed by a walk over the bridge to the stadium sounds like a great plan. Save your appetite for the Diamond Club buffet also!

    Seems like with all the things you are doing, Kings Island, Aquarium, Zoo, Museum, Lexington you might want to book a couple of extra nights!

    This is probably not the best board to ask this question. Try this; your question gets asked there often.

    Enjoy your stay!

    Have fun, hopefully you thoroughly enjoy yourselves while watching the Cardinals lose each night.

    Did you read the bit about him being from Memphis?
    Note to OP: Don't bother with Montgomery Inn. You won't be impressed.
