If you live in Ohio, Cincinnati is one of the best places that you can possibly call home — that is, if you live just close enough to it. Like any city, living in downtown Cincinnati can be stressful! Things move fast in the city, making every aspect of life more difficult — especially when you are talking about finding a parking space. On the other hand, living on the outskirts of a large city’s limits can be just as stressful, especially if you are a commuter.

All of that being said, there are a few places in the country where living on the outskirts of the city can be enjoyable — places like West Chester Township. When you live in West Chester you don’t have to deal with crazy traffic and a seemingly sped up life, all while still being able to easily access the various benefits that Cincinnati can provide.

In today’s blog post The Lakes at West Chester Village, your source of apartments for rent in West Chester, will be discussing a few of our favorite things to do in Cincinnati — our source of entertainment a quick 30 minutes down the road.

Visit The Newport Aquarium

One of our favorite things to do in Cincinnati is to go to the Newport Aquarium for the day. The Newport aquarium is nothing like any other aquarium that you have been to, featuring exciting features like a 75-foot long suspension bridge over a 385,000-gallon shark exhibit. Perfect for adults and children, the Newport Aquarium is a great place to spend a couple hours or the entire day — and if you are brave enough you can even touch a stingray!

Visit the Carew Tower Observation Deck

If you want to get an aerial look of the city, there is no better place to visit than the Carew Observation deck. Sitting 49 floors above the city, the Carew Observation Deck allows its visitors to see the entire city — and even as far as Kentucky! But don’t just come for the views, also stop by the 25 shops and restaurants that call the Carew Tower home!

Attend A Cyclones Game

When people think of Cincinnati sports they tend to think of the Bengals and the Reds — but what about hockey? Sure, Cincinnati doesn’t have their own NHL team, but they do have a professional ECHL team that is affiliated with the Buffalo Sabers. So what are you waiting for? Stop into U.S. Bank Arena for some affordable family fun today!

Play Around At Dart Rush

If there is one good reason for an adult to leave our West Chester apartments, it is to relive their childhood by shooting darts at other adults. Dart Rush is an indoor recreation area that is dedicated to people who are looking to play around with some NERF®️ blasters. Whether you are there to play around with family or take out some suppressed anger on a coworker, Dart Rush is the perfect place to play.

Get Some Fresh Air On The Great Miami Riverway

While most people think of large cities like Cincinnati as “indoor” activity centers, there are still plenty of outdoor things that you can experience as well. Outdoor experiences like the Great Miami Riverway! This outdoor trail system follows the Miami River and features over 99 miles of paved trail and river for you to run, walk, or paddle. So if you are in Cincinnati and are looking to get a bit of fresh air, we urge you to consider checking out the Great Miami Riverway!
