Carew Tower, Cincinnati

4.4
Visit the Art Deco Carew Tower, part of the National Register of Historic Places and for 80 years the city's tallest building. Built in 1930, it towered over the town for the next eight decades at a height of 175 m (574 ft), and also served as an inspiration for the Empire State Building in New York City. Make your way up 49 stories to the observation platform at the top. From there, enjoy sweeping views over the cityscape and river around you. Afterward, wander the building and browse its assortment of shops and eateries, and don't forget to grab a city souvenir from the gift shop on your way out. Take a look at our Cincinnati day trip planner to schedule your visit to Carew Tower and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • It's worth getting to the top and take a peek at the city from the roof. Only a few bucks and you'll get a 360 degrees view above the river, the stadiums, the city and its surroundings. Never experien...  more »
  • The price of entry is more expensive then what it should be, but the views make up for it! You can see for miles and Cincinnati has one of the best skyline views ever! Glad we did this!  more »

  • I love this gym, the staff are wonderful and their are always Personal Trainers around from Nutrition Dynamic willing to offer advice and answer any fitness and nutrition related question. They also have a wonderful selection of healthy snacks and drink. This Snap has definitely won me over.
  • The convenient location of the gym downtown is great for a guy like me who is always on the move. The composition of the gym allows for a more personal workout because there are different areas for designated machines, benches, treadmills, other cardio, etc. There was no pressure, staff members were helpful and informative but didn't make me feel uncomfortable.
  • This is the most friendly and professional gym I have ever been in. The front desk service is wonderful and always up for a conversation and knows everything about the city. By far the best Snap I have ever been in!
  • Best gym in Downtown Cincinnati by FAR. The only 24 hour gym and it is now one of the largest! Love it here! The new location in the Carew Tower is amazing and offers even more amenities than before.
  • I work downtown and this location is super convenient. Has every machine I'll ever need and it even has a POOL!

Where to stay in Cincinnati

To take advantage of the best cultural attractions available in Cincinnati, stay at a hotel downtown. Though pricey, centrally located hotels offer spacious rooms packed with high-tech features, as well as quick and easy access to the city's best shopping, dining, and entertainment.
