It’s time to explore one of Cincinnati’s best-kept secrets: Mt. Adams, on a private tour with a local. This picturesque hilltop neighborhood is filled with history.
We’ll start your private tour of Mt. Adams in front of a neighborhood bar that was reportedly once a speakeasy owned by an infamous bootlegger. Then we’ll head over to a beautiful mural dedicated to the pioneers of the “hill” that will take us on a journey back in time. Along the way we’ll pass by some of the area’s beautiful architecture and see how the town has maintained its historic charm over the years.
After a short walk through the center of town we’ll relax and refuel with a pastry and coffee or tea at a local café where you can dine inside or al fresco, depending on the weather and your preference.
Next, we’ll walk up some steps to the spot of a former observatory and monastery then head back down to see where the famous Rookwood Pottery company was originally located and take in some breath-taking views of the city in the process.
We’ll then stroll through a quaint residential area and take the “hidden” steps up to Immaculata Church and gaze at the amazing views from the top. You’ll also learn about the 158-year-old tradition that happens on the steps of the church on Good Friday each year.
Finally, after all that exploring, it’s time to reward yourself with a cold drink at Cincinnati’s oldest family-owned Irish pub, known for its friendly service and great beers.
