Cincinnati’s Colorful Wall Murals

Posted on

I don’t know if you’ve ever visited Cincinnati, Ohio or not, but they’ve got a great mural scene going for them. There were murals everywhere you turned – so many that I couldn’t get pictures of them all because I ran out of time!

The BEST Wall Murals in

You’ll find snap shots of my favorites in this post, along with where to find them in case you want to go exploring on your own. And then when you’re done, make your way to Over the Rhine for some great food, game bars or axe throwing.

This fun Cincinati, OH mural is on the corner of Reading Rd. and E. 12th Street. There really isn’t a good place to park, but if you drive around the corner and park on Pendleton Street, you’ll be at the entrance to Boliver Alley, and can walk down it and get to this mural that way.

Once you’ve taken your photo at the Cincinnati mural, make your way back down Boliver Alley for the coolest mural experience all in one place.





Downtown, near OTR, you will find everything from cats, zombies, food to vintage toys.

Crazy Cat mural is located at 1120 Walnut Street and has a parking lot in front of it, so you can park here, then walk to some of the other murals in the area.
This Zombie mural is right across the parking lot from the cat mural.
This one reminds me of something out of the 70s! It can be found at 311 East 13th Street.



Lookin’ Good mural, which has neon lights around it, is right around the corner from the cat mural.
This one shares a parking lot with the Lookin’ Good Mural.


This one is on the corner of E. Central Parkway and Eggleston.
Classic Toy Mural, located at 23 W Court St.
You’ll have to drive out of downtown for this fun mural. Located in Reading, this serves as a welcome to the Reading Bridal District and can be found at 11 Benson Street, Reading, OH 45215.

Part of the legend series, this mural pays tribute to Annie Oakley in the neighborhood where she was born and grew up. 3211 Madison Road.

There are many others I didn’t get a chance to photograph, like James Brown, Neil Armstrong, and the flying pig. However, you can download a handy map of the murals in Cincinnati to see what else I missed.

Have fun exploring!

    We recently visited Cinci to see my best friend there (last year)– I know I mentioned this on IG too. I just love that little city. Rhinegeist was one of the largest and coolest breweries that I have ever seen. We didn’t have a ton of time there, which makes me bummed that I missed these murals. I had no idea that there were so many.

    The only street art that we saw was outside of the American Sign Museum, but it was their art–still loved it.

    When I back in town, we will have to meet up.

    Thanks for always following along with TUL on all channels too. I appreciate it! Working on that NC book list right now. Have a great weekend!
