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!
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.
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.
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.
Last weekend I met up with my friends for a fun girls afternoon/early evening out in Cincinnati. We’re trying to plan more than just getting together around the holidays and after our wine and canvas outing in February, decided it might be fun to go axe throwing!
I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and was thrilled everyone else was on board. We met up at Urban Axes in Cincinnati and after signing a waiver saying we wouldn’t sue anyone if an axe chopped us in half, plus a short coaching session with our lane coach, it was time to throw!
As someone who is used to shooting, it was kind of hard to get used to not having sights on the ax, so it took some time to figure out how hard to throw, but by the end of the hour, I was hitting the target and would have liked another hour to keep practicing.
Here’s a fun photo with our axe throwing coach, whose name escapes me at the moment.
After our hour was up at Urban Axes, we stopped at a cat mural so me, Jenny and Allison (aka the cat ladies) could get a jumping photo in front of it.
Then we went to The Rook for drinks, board games and appetizers. If you ever find yourself there, order the jumbo tater tots! The pretzel bites were also really delicious.
Finally, our night ended at Senate, where most of us chowed down on gourmet hot dogs, truffle fries and giant potato skins.
I also did some mural hunting earlier that day and will have a post about that coming soon!
