Getting to the top of the Carew Tower is an adventure in itself. After two sets of elevators and a flight of narrow stairs to the 49th floor, your trek will be rewarded with a 360-degree view of the city, the Ohio River and Northern Kentucky. The Carew Tower is the second tallest building in the city.
The $2-for-adults, $1-for-children admission fee offers wonderful photo ops on a clear day and a chance to see Cincinnati’s topography from above. Due to the narrow elevator and steep stairs, strollers aren’t recommended. The gift shop offers several unique souvenirs centered on Cincinnati and the tower.
