Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens, Cincinnati: 14 reviews and 29 photos
Recently voted the #1 Cincinnati attraction (and consistently ranked as one of the best in the nation), you'll want to visit the largest zoo in the US east of the Mississippi (it's also the 2nd oldest in the country and is designated a National Historic Landmark)!
Be sure to check out Manatee Springs (they're so sweet the way the manatee couples hang out together with one usually having a flipper protectively laid on its partner). You'll also want to see the polar bears at Lords of the Arctic and, if you're fascinated with dangerous things, the Dragons of Komodo.
During the winter holiday season come by to enjoy the PNC Festival of Lights: fun & magical for kids, romantic for couples.
