Downtown Cincinnati is full of action, from the bustling workday crowd to theatergoers in the city to catch a play at the Aronoff Center to art patrons off to catch an exhibit at the Contemporary Arts Center. The stadiums attract huge crowds, especially during the weekends. But it's Main Street, between Liberty Street and Central Parkway, where downtown really comes to life. Art galleries and specialty stores selling antiques, flowers, and music operate by day, and nightclubs attract a spirited crowd at night.

The University of Cincinnati and "Pill Hill," the city's hospital district, are found in the uptown area, north of downtown. Its international restaurants and the indie Esquire Theater draw a diverse crowd, while its restaurants and bars are frequented by fun-seeking college students.

This trendy, hillside neighborhood overlooking downtown is the place to be on the weekend. Nightclubs and restaurants line the streets and are open into the wee hours of the morning. Mount Adams is sandwiched in bounded by the Ohio River, Eden Park, and I–71. Parking is difficult, however; consider taking a cab.
