Where should you begin? Here are a few of our favorite things:
Schedule a tee time at the Blue Ash Golf Course:
Golf Digest magazine has rated the award-winning Blue Ash Golf Course as one of its top 75 municipal golf courses in the United States – out of approximately 10,000 such courses! Recently, the Course was proven again as a favorite public course within the Cincinnati area as it was chosen as the “reader’s pick” by the Cincinnati-based magazine City Beat . It was also voted "Best of the North" by the readers of Cincinnati Magazine as their favorite course, multiple times. It was host to the 107th Tony Blom Metropolitan Championship in 2016. The 18-hole, 6,800 yard par 72 championship layout will challenge even the most discriminating golfer. The golf course is open year-round, weather permitting. (Photo by Terrence Huge)

The tower’s glass elevator takes visitors to the 125 foot Observation Deck, where they can see downtown Cincinnati, King Island’s Eiffel Tower and other familiar landmarks.
