    Out of country visitors

    Ok friend from Spain is coming with his girlfriend (she doesn't speak english) to Cincinnati for about a week. He has been here many times and stayed in Cincinnati for months at a time. Meeting in New York for 4 days, then coming to Cincy for 7. He mentioned maybe show her another City.

    Figure, we'll do the reds, bengals (both in town), zoon, kings island. Then maybe a 2 day drive trip. First two that come to mind are Chicago or Nashville. If they just did New York would they really want to go to Chicago? Nashville is more of a change and shows another part of country but is there enough to do?

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Chicago over Nashville any day of the week, it's a monster city and the lake front is great in the summer.

    How old are you guys? I havn't personally been there but my girlfriends and all her friends spent a bachlorette party in Indy one weekend and loved the downtown atmosphere. I have been to chicago and loved it. The only drawback is that it is a 5 hour drive and it is a little expensive.

    Nashville will keep you busy for quite a while. There's lots of stuff to see and do and a wide variety of music styles can be seen on any given night.

    And we do have more than 2 movie theaters. (In fact, when the Hollywood 27 opened in the late 90's, it was the 2nd largest theater in America.)

    Five hours is a long drive?

    It only took me 4 1/2 the last time I went up there, but that was without stopping. Anyway, Chicago is a great town to visit for a day. The last few times I've been there I haven't had any time to do anything, drop off and pick up and back home, but there's so much to do there and it's really not that far away.

    Last time I was in Asheville they were having a frisbee golf tournament downtown. They were dragging the goal all over the place and a crowd of about 500 spectators were following them all around. It was hilarious; one guy had a caddy.

    I looked at Reds Schedule and they will be in Chicago when we want to go there. Could be fun to go to Wrigley. The idea of Nashville would be just to show them a totally different sort of town than New York or Cincinnati. Doubt they are much into country music though so we will probably go to Chicago.

    I will check out Ashville too.

    Any thoughts on the horse farms in Lexington?
