Cincinnati — 2 nights

Situated on the north bank of the Ohio River, Cincinnati distinguished itself as the only U.S. city that left a favorable impression on one of its most famous 19th-century visitors, English author Charles Dickens.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and Riverwalk. Get in touch with nature at Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum and Great Miami River Trail. Take a break from Cincinnati with a short trip to Kings Island in Mason, about 30 minutes away. It doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral Basilica of St. Peter in Chains and admire the masterpieces at Taft Museum of Art.
