Yep, if you are in the greater Cincinnati area you HAVE to have Cincy-style chili.
Also Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal always has great exhibits. The Zoo is awesome, the Underground Railroad Freedom Center is great... there are lots of cool art museums to see and there is always something great happening with the Cincy Ballet or an off-broadway at the Aronoff. Newport is technically Kentucky but its right there, the Aquarium is amazing and there is lots of great shopping. Hit up Paul Brown stadium to watch the Bengals lose, or go to Great American Ballpark to see the Reds and eat a hot dog. Downtown CIncy is like a freak show, Seriously go sit in Fountain Square and just people watch. If you want to go about 15 minutes north, go to Kings Island or the Beach Waterpark. There are tons of things to do in Cincy.
