4 Family-Friendly Weekend Escapes Near Cincinnati

Planning an Exciting Cincinnati Weekend Getaway Kings Island Ohio

Cincinnati is full of activities for the whole family. You have the Great American Ball Park, the Music Hall, as well as many other cultural activities and family friendly attractions. Sometimes though, it is nice to experience a new atmosphere. Sometimes, we just want to get away.

You and your family may not want to venture too far from home. The costs can really mount up the further you go. That is where these four family friendly vacation spots come in. You and your family get the feeling of an actual vacation without traveling so for that you have to pay airfare.

Coney Island

Spend a weekend at Coney Island. Down on the banks of the Ohio river, 10 miles east of Downtown is this fun little amusement and waterpark. The whole family can have fun on roller coasters, playing pool side, and watching live shows.

While you are in the area you can enjoy the Royal Oaks Park, and the California Woods Natural Preserve. You will also find the Belterra Park Racino and Riverbed Music Center. When your family is hungry you can try out a Bar and Grill that is serving up hearty American fare, Lebo’s Bar and Grill.


Head across the Ohio River to Newport. There you and the family can enjoy the beautiful Newport Aquarium. Your kids will love the educational experience. Get a different view of Cincinnati by taking a Ride The Ducks Tour. For those families that love a scare, plan a trip to the U.S.S. Nightmare. Keep in mind this event happens from September through October.

Krohn Conservatory

Krohn Conservatory is just outside the Cincinnati busy streets. Within the park area you can relax and enjoy the day by Mirror Lake. There is also the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Cincinnati Play House. A great spot to find dinner? The Montgomery Inn, where you can find the best barbeque ribs and enjoy the waterfront view.

Kings Island

Head into Mason, Ohio for a weekend of fun. There the whole family can have lots of fun at the largest amusement and water park in the Midwest, Kings Island. There you will find Dinosaurs Alive, the largest animatronic dinosaur park. Or ride the newest addition to the park, Banshee. While you are staying in Mason you can enjoy the local parks and sites, restaurants, laser tag, and shopping.

Plan your family get-a-way soon. And consider hiring one of our car services to whisk you and your family away to one of these wonderful destinations. A little weekend vacation is just what you and your family need to feel refreshed.
