Your shopping destination, all within walking distance.

Over-the-Rhine is your go-to shopping destination in Downtown Cincinnati, with a wide variety of boutiques and specialty stores, from home décor to high-end fashion, and more. Stroll along Vine Street’s historic buildings or explore the eclectic selection of merchants located on Main Street. Take a break with a cocktail or meal along the outdoor dining areas, or “streateries”.

From Shakespeare to the symphony, Over-the-Rhine has all the arts and culture you need.

Catch a performance of Romeo & Juliet at the Cincy Shakespeare Company or visit the historic Music Hall for a concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Experience a play or musical performance at the Know Theatre or Ensemble Theatre, both located within Over-the-Rhine’s bustling dining and entertainment district.

Washington Park: an urban oasis at the heart of Over-the-Rhine.

Beautiful Washington Park, located next to Music Hall, offers a large event lawn and ideal gathering space for movie nights, live music, festivals and other events. The Sherwin-Williams Porch offers a relaxing, shaded area for enjoying a drink while overlooking the park, including the popular dog park, sprayground, and playground areas.

Take a dip at the Ziegler Park Pool.

Ziegler Park, located along the eastern boundary of Over-the-Rhine, provides a playground, greenspace and water features, including Ziegler Pool, a popular destination for those looking to cool off during those hot summer days. The pool is home to the Rhinos, a neighborhood youth swim team. Visitors can enjoy fun events and programming at the pool, including “Adult Swim” nights, as well as rent the facility for private events. With swim lessons to lap swim and more, Ziegler Pool has something for visitors and residents of any age to enjoy.
