When you’re not attending Midwest Sign Show events, you can enjoy the sights and fun of Cincinnati, the Queen City.

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

“You can get eye-level with the world’s tallest animals in Giraffe Ridge, catch a glimpse of celebrity hippo Fiona in Hippo Cove, and watch the pack of African painted dogs at play. The Gorilla World indoor habitat features floor-to-ceiling viewing glass, so visitors can watch and engage with the zoo’s 11 gorillas year-round.” Plan your visit at www.cincinnatizoo.org

Kings Island

“The largest amusement park in the Midwest, Kings Island boasts more than 100 attractions and includes 16 roller coasters. The newest coaster – Mystic Timbers – joined the roster in spring 2017. The park also features the world’s longest wooden roller coaster, the Beast, as well as dozens of attractions in the award-winning Planet Snoopy kids’ area.” Advice for your adventure: www.visitkingsisland.com

Newport Aquarium

“One million gallons of water are home to some of the most unique water-life attractions in the county. Visit the bayou-themed Gator Alley, watch the penguins frolic in Penguin Palooza, touch playful stingrays in Stingray Hideaway, and even dare to cross Shark Bridge, the world’s first suspended rope bridge with sharks just inches below.” More information is available at www.newportaquarium.com
