Some sights worth seeing in the Cincinnati area.

When I first arrived in Cincinnati on Monday, I sent my husband out in search of parking and restaurant information while I was at a meeting for NGS Conference volunteers. After he finished his assignment, he took off for Covington, Kentucky to find the Kenton Library. Instead he found MainStrasse Village and Drees Pavilon. 

If you are looking for a place to take a break from genealogy after the conference activities on Friday or Saturday, I recommend that you head across the Ohio River to Covington for a trip back into the mid nineteenth century. The MainStrasse Village is a mixture of shopping, sidewalk cafes, pubs, and sightseeing. There are some beautiful homes on Riverside Dr. which runs along the Ohio River. To be on the safe side so that you don't get lost in Kentucky, I suggest you ask someone at the Information Booth in the conference center for a map and directions. For the walking tour:

Drees Pavilon is at the top of the hill we always see on the right as we cross the Ohio River on I-75 headed for Florida. There is an overlook with a breathtaking view of Cincinnati and a golf course that defies the imagination. The Pavilon is a wedding venue, but its website is the best place to go for information and directions to the top of the hill. Click on About Us for directions.
