I had the opportunity to take the “Beyond the Bricks” tour presented by the guides for the Society for the Preservation of Music Hall. While the building is under construction with renovations, you have the opportunity to learn to appreciate the fine points of the building like never before. The “Beyond the Bricks’ tour takes you on a 90 minute outdoor tour around Cincinnati Music Hall that will open your eyes to important details that can so be easily overlooked.
I’m a wimp when it comes to scary things but I knew that I had to face my fears when I was given the opportunity to take a behind the scenes tour of the Dent Schoolhouse. Not only is the Dent Schoolhouse known as Cincinnati’s scariest haunted house, but it’s known for being one of the top haunted houses in the nation!

It truly is a unique gem that is very special to our city.

I’m pretty much up for any adventure that involves wine, which is why taking a tour of local wineries with Cincy WineWagon was a no brainer. I also love variety and this tour gave us three different wineries that each had their own personality and flavors.
