Best Cincinnati Gift Cards

Cincinnati Gift Card

I used to hate gift cards but not anymore. I thought gift cards were impersonal and the lazy way of giving. Over time, however, I’ve realized that a gift card that encourages a new experience can be a great way to bring friends and family together to make memories.

Cincinnati offers a number of experiences from which to choose. In fact, Cincinnati USA and its Regional Tourism Network have all rallied around the #cincyexperience hashtag. We have so many things to do here locally that it can be overwhelming once you decide to give a gift card for a Cincinnati experience.

To help with your shopping, I’ve chosen a few of my favorites with a quick explanation for each to help you match your recipient to the best experience.

  • Cincinnati Arts gift certificate–For the lover of music and the arts. Valid for events at both Music Hall and the Aronoff Center, including Cincinnati Arts Association, Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony/Pops Orchestras, Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Cincinnati, and May Festival, as well as other resident arts groups and touring shows.
  • Brewing Heritage Trail, Cincy Brew Bus, and American Legacy Tours¬†gift cards–For the lover of beer and history. Valid for historic walking tours, bus tours, underground tours, and brewery tours.
  • Queen City gift card–For the lover of downtown. Valid at more than 200 shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations.
