Hi! I’m Nedra McDaniel pronounced (Knee-dra) and I love sharing about adventures in Cincinnati and beyond.

Underwater hockey, jumping off of the Stratosphere, sleeping in a submarine, swinging on a trapezetrying the luge, letting a wolf play with my hair, taking a cooking class…and the list goes on and on.

Life is all about sharing experiences. I love nothing more than sharing a first-time adventure with family or friends, new or old. 

The irony is that I’m kind of a wimp but I’ve become addicted to the magic that happens when I face my fears and step outside of my comfort zone. 

I love sharing adventures and encouraging my readers to try something new because their lives will never be the same.

On my site, you’ll find unique experiences, local flavors, outdoor adventures, hidden gems, travel destinations, and tips to help make adventure attainable in every season of life.

If you want to know more about why I’m passionate about living to the fullest check out my articles “Why Death Has Made Me Want to Live” and “Who Needs Your Invitation to Stir Up Bravery.”

  1. Are you sure that the large train shown at Land of Illusion is not at Lark Ranch in Indiana. They bought it from where it was displayed in a park in Las Vegas and I had not heard that it had been sold.

  2. Thank You for the great information you posted about your Alcatraz Swim.
    I am signed up for Shark Fest 2023 (Aug 26) and am super excited for it.
    You gave me a ton of great info to help me prepare and swim this event.
