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!
Xavier University Commons in Xavier’s beautiful campus. Xavier is a private, Jesuit school known for their quality academics and men’s basketball team.
Looking down through the heart of the campus. This same walkway is even more beautiful at night.
A statue of D’Artagnan, one of the three musketeers. It represents Xavier’s spirit of “All for One, One for All.”
A statue of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits.
Here is a statue of a scale. On its base is a small plaque that says, “Quo Vadis” which means, “Where are you going?”
Cincinnati Art Museum
A large display of Renaissance art depicting different scenes from the Bible.
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.
The Creation Museum – Petersburg, KY
A statue of a dinosaur welcoming us to the museum.
