Day 7: Union Terminal – Cincinnati, OH

I made my first real visit to Cincinnati on a freezing day in mid-January 2003. I had the pleasure of visiting (and getting warm inside) the Union Terminal. Inside, you’ll find a cool children’s museum, a railroad museum, and some beautiful mosaics. The outside of the building is quite impressive as well and is an icon on the western edges of downtown Cinci. The terminal is still active, with a daily Amtrak service.

This photo I shot just inside the entrance. It has a very solemn feel for me—almost haunting. I had no idea what to expect when entering the building, but I vividly remember enjoying it.

In my opinion, Cincinnati has the most impressive skyline of the Ohio cities. Mostly because of the great view of the skyline coming through the Gap in Northern Kentucky on I-71 & 75. There are quite a few walkable neighborhoods to explore in Cincinnati, despite its less-than-stellar reputation.

This article is a part of the Exploring the Walkability of America in 30 Days photo series.
