Decorated by a brilliant floral exposition that highlights Japanese efflorescence, Krohn Conservatory’s Butterfly Show combines cultural artifacts with a collection of delicate, flashy flutterbugs that have dazzled 750,000 visitors over 15 years. In an open showroom, butterflies of every size, color, and political orientation flutter nonchalantly from plant to plant and greet guests with firm, friendly antenna-shakes. Seasonally themed greenery displays change thrice throughout the summer, starting with the sakura (cherry blossom) theme that ran until May 11 and continuing with tanabata (star festival) from May 12 to June 1 and otsukimi (moon viewing) taking over from June 2 to 20.
Wheel Fun Rentals equips visitors with pedal-propelled transit to traverse the oft-overlooked scenery of Cincinnati. A wide range of vehicles, such as a cruiser bicycle ($8/hour), a low-lying chopper ($10/hour), a deuce coupe for two ($20/hour), or a surrey ($20–$30/hour), ferries riders across one of four scenic routes. The Sawyer Point Park and Cincinnati Riverfront trips both unfold 2 miles of pathway along the banks of the Ohio River for two wheelers and four wheelers to lament the existence of no wheelers. The picturesque neighborhood of Mt. Adams lures bicycles on a 5-mile trip that explores the blooming gardens of the quaint town and its neighbor Eden Park, which frames a panoramic view of the Cincinnati skyline. Wheels spin across state lines as peddlers navigate the 2,670-foot Purple People Bridge en route to Newport, Kentucky, where the 350,000-square-foot Newport on the Levee entertainment complex entices sightseers with shops, restaurants, and theaters.
Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
More than 80 years ago, the Taft family bequeathed their stately home to the people of Cincinnati?and they also gave them plenty to hang on the walls. Home to the Taft's collection of 690 works of art, the Taft Museum welcomes visitors to view paintings by European and American masters, Chinese porcelains, European decorative arts, and captivating rotating exhibitions throughout the year. As they wander the museum, patrons view Rembrandt van Rijn's Portrait of a Man Rising from His Chair, Whistler's At The Piano, and John Singer Sargent's portrait of Robert Louis Stevenson, among other notable works.
The house itself is equally impressive. William Howard Taft accepted his nomination for President of the United States beneath the portico, and the structure, first built in 1820, is considered one of the country's finest examples of Federal architecture in the Palladian style.
