Why Over-the-Rhine is the Perfect Place for a Food Tour

Route for A typical Over-the-Rhine food tourBeing in the right place at the right time is always a good thing. Deciding to start Cincinnati Food Tours at this time, in this place, was even better. Culinary tourism has exploded, but the renaissance that has occurred in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati is what really jumpstarted our business.

Here’s why our Over-the-Rhine food tour just plain works:

  1. It’s walkable. Less than a square mile in area, Over-the-Rhine includes over 900 historic Italianate buildings. Sidewalks, public art, parks, and gardens make walking enjoyable.
  2. It’s packed with restaurants, bars, and pastry shops. Over 80 small, independent businesses from which to choose. No Starbucks or McDonald’s here.
  3. It’s diverse. All ages, ethnic groups, singles and families interact in Over-the-Rhine. Restaurants serve everything from empanadas to Belgian waffles.
  4. It’s changed. Years of blight and crime have been replaced by economic development, new energy, and community pride. No doubt, Over-the-Rhine is one of the best urban success stories in the United States.
