Cincinnati for the Sports Fan

Apr 1, 2008
What exactly defines a good vacation for a sports fan? Usually it is little more than a trip to a city to see a professional sports team play a game. After that, there really isn't a lot of options for the avid sports fan. Most vacations spots just are not all that sports oriented, at least not enough to give a sports fan enough activities to keep him or her occupied for an entire weeks worth of vacation time. However, there is one spot in the United States that does have an immense amount of sports oriented attractions to last at least a week, if not longer. This is the grand old city of Cincinnati Ohio.

Home of the Reds

Cincinnati is a sports fans' dream vacation spot. The city is absolutely full of sports fans, attractions, and businesses that simply love one sport or another. For the baseball fan, you can start out your dream getaway with a game to see one of Major League Baseball's most renowned teams, the Cincinnati Reds. Fans and celebrities from all over the United States follow the yearly progress of this great MLB team, and visit Cincinnati on an annual basis to watch them play. Get your tickets early for this one, as the Reds are so popular that the good seats are all gone pretty fast.

The Sports of Yesteryear

After enjoying a day of watching your favorite Cincinnati team play, you can really get into the history of the Reds by heading to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum. As sports museums go, this one is high in the rankings and low in the price. For eight dollars for adults and six dollars for kids, you can spend the day walking through one exhibit after another of Reds history. There are real game winning baseballs here from some of histories greatest games. Along with this, you will find tons of autographed items by some of the games most legendary players. There are autographed balls, jerseys, hats, and even baseball bats. Next to the baseball hall of fame, you will find no better gathering of baseball memorabilia than at the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum

The Cincinnati Gardens

After that, for a nice change of pace in sporting events, you can spend a day at one of the many great happenings at the Cincinnati Gardens auditorium. You never know fun-filled and unusual sporting event will be held here next. This is the key Cincinnati spot for Monster Truck Nationals, Rodeos, and truck and tractor pulls. For the sports fan with a family, this makes for a nice change of venue as there are also circus's held here several times per year.

Home of the Bengals

This is just the tip of the barrel for the many sports fan activities to be found in Cincinnati. This great sporting city is also home to the Paul Brown Stadium where the famed National Football League team, the Cincinnati Bengal's, plays. There are tons of fan shops and memorabilia stores located throughout the city, and many of the local restaurants offer cuisine with a decidedly sports slant to it. The true sports fan will finally find his ultimate dream vacation in the city of Cincinnati Ohio.
