The mansion’s mustard-yellow walls are outlined by crisp white trim, as well as slender columns where the stately edifice sits overlooking the Ohio River. Built in the mid-19th century for Thomas Gaff, the Italian Renaissance-inspired estate is full of antebellum charm. Now a National Historic Landmark, its ornately carved brackets and sweeping balconies constantly remind visitors of the era when it was built, when each of these details was crafted painstakingly by hand. Tour guides lead visitors through the mansion’s fully restored halls, which occasionally house tea parties and luncheons for lucky groups. The estate also hosts intimate wedding parties to engage in festivities or get inspiration in the Century of Brides exhibit that showcases century-old gowns.
The 90-minute walking tour will begin at MiCa 12V and weave through the streets of the Gateway District on an exploratory trail through Cincinnati's historic past. You'll visit the sites of former saloons, bars, and beer gardens; pass stages once graced by the likes of Charlie Chaplin and 19th-century gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok; and travel underground to view secret burial grounds and subsurface former brewery tunnels. Throughout the adventure, Queen City Underground’s ebullient and knowledgeable tour guides will regale you with historical anecdotes and colorful tales of the city's former residents (including tyrannical political boss George "Boss" Cox), and why the city was once known as the Paris of the United States.
Even massive TVs or wall-sized smartphones just can't replicate the experience of watching a movie on the silver screen. That being said, modern first-run theaters can put a damper on a family night out with exorbitant ticket and concession prices. Like time-traveling back to the golden days of affordable cinema, The Screens at Cincinnati Mall gives moviegoers all of the first-run perks?pristine projection, huge screens, crisp digital sound, and high-backed rocking seats?without siphoning wallets. With eight auditoriums, The Screens delivers moviegoing memories 365 days a year with a constant rotation of second-run blockbusters, including kids' films, horror flicks, action-adventures, rom-coms, and com-roms (movies about computers that hate each other at first, then fall in love). All the while, the concession stand keeps appetites at bay with a wealth of theater staples, including popcorn, nachos, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pretzels, sodas, and healthy fruit juices.

Who They Are
The collections at Behringer-Crawford Museum trace the history of the Ohio River Valley and Northern Kentucky across centuries and exciting changes. Visitors can step into different eras at a replica drive-in with a vintage Buick Electra or a model steamboat. The interactive activities are spread across a four-story exhibition area, which has room for natural science as well as history. That's why visitors can also find exciting products of nature, such as a two-headed calf, or enjoy a simulated boat trip down the Ohio River.
