Any one who visits Cincinnatti should not miss to go up this tower to view the town on a whole. The tower is situated at the centre of downtown.

Very inexpensive way to get a great view of the city. My wife loved it. They could update their viewers. The day was clear, so we had a great view from the top

I love the anticipation build up that precedes actually being on the roof. You go up two separate elevators and a flight of stairs before you can actually see the entire city! The male cashier at the top was less than friendly or excited about...More

Most of the way up is by elevator. The last 2 flights are stairs only (unless there is another way I don't know about). The flights are short, maybe 8 steps. I would give them a call. It is so worth doing if you can!
