"Mount Adams" Top 5 Page for this destination Ohio Things to Do Tip by traveldave

Ohio Things to Do: 157 reviews and 295 photos


Named after President John Quincy Adams, 818-foot (249-meter) Mount Adams is a must-see for anyone visiting Cincinnati. The top of the mountain is dominated by Eden Park, which contains the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Playhouse in the Park.

The lower slopes of the mountain are characterized by a newly renovated neighborhood with steep, narrow streets and many fine restaurants and small businesses.

The main attraction of Mount Adams, in my opinion, is the sweeping views of the Ohio River Valley to the east, and downtown Cincinnati to the west.
