Best views of the city from the top of the Carew Tower! It is an underrated attraction in Cincinnati. It is only $2 per person to go up, and spend as much time as you want up there, taking in the great views all around.

This is a landmark in more ways than one - it's not just the size, height, and status of the building; it's not just the amazing views; it's the atmosphere and the architecture; and all round it's a great experience. A good way to start a visit to a really interesting city.

Great visit with my family to the Carew Tower, loved the original old little elevator ride and taking the stairs. It was only $5 per person for a great view.

It was a beautiful day and the view was awesome. Just need to offer somewhere in the building a restrooms. Especially if there are small children going up.

We happen upon this place and were so glad we did!! It is a hidden treasure in downtown Cincinnati! The observation deck is up 49 floors and offers a complete 360 view of the city! It is very inexpensive, $4 per adult! We spent about an hour enjoying the views! It overlooks the Ohio River and has great views of... More

The architecture is a wonderful example of Art Deco, from the elevator doors and wall design. A trip to the outside observation deck on top used to be the tallest building in Cincinnati, still worth the vistas of the river, bridges, and surrounding hillsides. A wonderful 1930's example of a 'sky scraper' like the NYC Empire State Building.

A beautiful Art Deco style building in the heart of Cincinnati. Once you reach the roof top, it seems you can see for ever.....great views of the city, surrounding area and Kentucky !
