A not to miss view of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. A jewel of the city. It needs to be better advertised.

This seems to be one of the few things downtown that is open past 5pm. Easy access, some stair climbing required. Good views of downtown. Pricing very reasonable.

One of my favorite places to visit in December, as we wait for Santa, his reindeer and his elf to rapell from behind Macy's. I think there is an option of getting off to another elevator for the last few flights of stairs or walking. Beautiful sunset views.

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.
