Cincinnati Spring Break Staycation {Oh, the Places We’ll Go}


This year for spring break, we are planning on staying home, minus a weekend at the in-laws’ to celebrate Easter. We are looking forward to a fun Cincinnati staycation! And the chance to get out of the house as much as possible, especially while Daddy is working.


Here’s what’s in store for our family!

1. Cincinnati Zoo – Hopefully, we’ll have some nice weather and be able to feed giraffes and visit with the hippo bloat!

2. Reds Hall of Fame Museum – In conjunction with the Reds Opening Day on March 28, we will check out the Reds Hall of Fame Museum! We’ve never been and my oldest is playing baseball this spring, and both of my older two are interested in the Reds, so I think they will love checking this out!

3. Happy Hangout – My boys love this indoor play place, but it is pretty far away from our home, so spring break is the perfect time to make the trek over to the west side. My youngest has never been yet, and I’m sure he’ll love exploring the play houses in the little town and the toddler area that’s made just for littles!

4. Entertrainment Junction – A favorite of my train-loving boys. The indoor playground is perfect for rainy days and if the weather is nice, we love the rides outside, too!

5. Jump Zone – This is a new one for our family, and the boys love inflatables, so I’m sure it will be a hit!

6. Strike and Spare – We would love to go bowling as a family for the first time!

7. Cincinnati Museum Center – With new additions and renovations to the Children’s Museum, this is a must for our Cincinnati spring break staycation!

8. Velocity Esports – Another new to us place to explore!

9. The Web – This is one of my boys’ favorites, and they are always asking to go!

10. Cincinnati Nature Center – We’d love to check out the Nature Playscape and go on one of the many hikes available. I would love to pick up one of the Hike for Health passports and get started on the adventure!

11. National Underground Railroad Museum – I always love to sneak in some educational experiences to a staycation, so this will be a good one for the boys to learn about this part of our history!

Raised in Cincinnati, I love partaking in everything our city has to offer. From the museums to the zoo to the parks and events for kids, I love introducing my children to the culture and enriching activities in our city. I grew up playing piano and clarinet and dancing ballet. I have a Masters degree in education and worked in healthcare before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my two sons. Life with two extremely active young boys, ages 3 and 1 is chaotic, but I am loving the opportunity to see them grow into little people! I've always been a writer and educator at heart and dream of becoming a children's author.
