A lot of Cincinnati history lies within the brick walls of Cincinnati Gardens. Its construction alone was a major feat for the city; when it opened in 1949, only six arenas in the country were larger, and its first hockey game drew the largest ever crowd in the city under one roof. Richard Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge set another attendance record there on a campaign stop in 1960, and daredevil Delilah Wallenda performed a netless high-wire walk there twice, 70 feet above sheer ice. Gardens visitors can explore many of the arena's past thrills in the Legends Museum, a huge collection of sports and entertainment memorabilia that's free to the public before and during events.

Now in its 90th year under the big top, the Syrian Shrine Circus entertains audiences with whimsical animals and death-defying trapeze artists. Animal attractions featuring tigers and elephants showcase the animal kingdom's most talented performers, and the Shrine Circus clowns deliver informative lectures on the density of a Volkswagen Beetle. After the performance, youngsters can saddle up to ride and pet different types of animals, including elephants, donkeys, and camels.

Founded in 2012 by tenor Shawn Mlynek and soprano Autumn West, the Cincinnati Chamber Opera lives by their motto: opera for everyone. That means staging small scale works in intimate venues, showcasing passionate performances by young and up-and-coming artists, and creating accessible productions without skimping on the vibrato. The young company has already presented pieces ranging from popular dramas such as L'Orfeo to little-known comedies such as Il Mondo Della Luna. By casting a broad stylistic net and keeping their stage pictures simple, Cincinnati Chamber Opera aims to return the art form to its populist roots.
