Cincinnati Ohio and Newport Kentucky

It was great to spend a couple of days in Cincinnati visiting some suppliers. 

Fortunately I got some time one late afternoon to walk around downtown with my camera and take some photos. Starting with a beer at the Hofbräuhaus of course.

When I asked about places I should visit whilst in town the advice was unanimous - Newport on the Levee

Newport is on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River near its confluence with the Licking River. This spot formally know for it’s more unsavoury establishments has been transformed into a really pleasant spot to chill out, listen to some live music and view the Cincinnati skyline at sunset. 

BTW: If you have an extra day you should also try the Ribs at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse

Great article about the criminality that used to exist in Newport and Covington.
