Places to visit
Iowa is a very welcoming state where there are plenty of attractions, and once you start visiting you get caught up in the game very quickly and you can’t stop anymore so here are some of the spots you shouldn’t miss;
- The City of Cincinnati’s two professional baseball and football teams shared the same stadium before, but it turned out that this old facility was insufficient, resulting in the construction of two adjacent stadiums, the Great American Ballpark is indeed quite impressive and very gracious, but the price of tickets is quite expensive.
- The Carew Tower is the tallest skyscraper in Cincinnati, built in the 1930s but was hampered by the Great Depression, which explains its rather austere external appearance, the building is of mixed use housing not only the Hilton Hotel but also professional offices and private housing.
- The large Paul Brown Stadium on the waterfront is located exactly opposite the Ohio River, it was inaugurated in 2010, it is home to the Cincinnati Bengals, the NFL, and the American Football League, its external appearance is very modern, and it is locally known as the Jungle, in honour of the Bengal Tigers.
- The large John A. Roebling Bridge over the Ohio River, reread Cincinnati to Covington, was once considered the longest suspension bridge in the world, dating back to 1856 and is a true expression of architectural engineering with many cables contributing to its suspension, and its pedestrian path is very pleasant for taking beautiful walks with impressive views of the river.
- The Cathedral St. Peter in Chains is the main Catholic temple of the city, but also the seat of its archbishopric it is a very beautiful impressive building of Greek style that dates from the nineteenth century, with similar external and internal characteristics knowing that the crucifix is by Benvenutto Cellini the teacher of the Renaissance, its appearance is quite original in the United States, where most of the religious temples tend to imitate Gothic art.
