We recommend O’Bryonville-Hyde Park-Oakley-Mt. Lookout and Newport-Covington & Downtown Cincinnati courses as they are closest to the downtown hotels and The Living Room.
The Cincinnati Zoo was recently rated the #1 attraction locally and one of the top zoos in the nation by Zagat Survey. It was recognized by Parents Magazine as #7 on the “Top 10 Best Zoos for Kids.” Over one million people visit the Zoo’s award-winning exhibits, and more than 500 animal and 3,000 plant species annually.
