2019-12-20 :: WEEKEND WISHING - A couple weekends ago we headed to Cincinnati, OH and spent the weekend playing tourist. It is a city we visit frequently, but during this trip we decided to really fully explore the city. We treated it as if we had never been to the area before and crammed our schedule full of activities, eating, drinking and relaxing.. just like we do when we travel to new cities. At the end of the weekend I had a whole new appreciation and love for the area. Moral of the story? I HIGHLY suggest planning a trip to Cincinnati. More >

2019-11-22 :: OTTSWORLD - I know we all have a limited amount of vacation time. I also know that most people are enticed by the exotic, beachy, or popular destinations when you do spend that precious vacation time. So why am I telling you to take that vacation time and travel to Cincinnati? I too was slightly skeptical about Cincinnati when I decided to go there. After all, there were no mountains, no oceans, and no glitzy skyline. Little did I know that Cincinnati didn’t need any of those glitzy things…it instead had surprisingly cool history and personality that I didn’t even know existed in middle America. On this trip, I discovered Cincinnati. It was full of culture and quirkiness and I spent most of my time saying the words, “I had no idea Cincinnati had this!” More >

This time the trip was mainly for the purpose of eating, with a few other activities thrown in between meals. First things first — let’s get to the food. More >
