6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
We’re always developing educational adventures that open windows to new places and probe fascinating topics. Check out our latest creations.
See all of our New programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Historians admire it as the first truly American major city — established after the Revolution by American-born founders. Art and culture lovers revere it for its galleries and performing-arts venues. Now it’s your turn to fall in love with Cincinnati, where laid-back Midwest charm meets artsy big-city sophistication on the banks of the Ohio River. Join local experts at museums and landmarks that interpret the many hats Cincinnati has worn, from America’s original boomtown to waypoint on the Underground Railroad. Admire Art Deco architecture and horticultural artistry unrivaled in the nation. Learn about the city from a unique perspective aboard a riverboat on the Ohio River. Go backstage at the home of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, enjoy the vitality of downtown right outside your hotel and much more.


Highlights

• Go to places you can’t experience with regular admission, like behind-the-scenes areas of the Cincinnati Museum Center and Music Hall.
• Explore the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, a historic district of splendid Italianate architecture and home to Music Hall, the reportedly haunted home of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
• You haven’t had ice cream until you’ve had Graeter’s Ice Cream. Sample the products of this Cincinnati institution while learning about its small-batch French Pot method of production.

Activity Notes

Walk up to two hours on field trips in the city, museum visits; use of public transit. Two-hour study cruise on the Ohio River.
