Spring and summer travel montage, Part 4

Cincinnati, OH – “The Queen of the West”

On June 1, my family and I stayed in Cincinnati, Ohio for a week. It was very relaxing and more enjoyable than we anticipated. While we were there, we explored the city, the outskirts, and nearby Kentucky. Cincinnati is a very beautiful city with a lot of history and rich culture. Here are some pictures we took of the places we visited. Hope you enjoy them!

In the same room, there is this column structure to divide the room and provide light. Its Greek style definitely gives credence to the Renaissance period. It also serves as a beautiful piece of art itself.
