Best Of 2018

Lunken Airport is a pretty cool place. The private/corporate/charter aviation hub is housed in a historic Art Deco building and has its own restaurant, the Sky Galley, where patrons can grab a burger and a beer while watching planes take off and land. It’s also where Charles Lindbergh landed the Spirit of St. Louis for a visit, three months after his famous flight to Paris, and The Beatles disembarked before their 1964 show at Cincinnati Gardens. The airport has seen plenty of presidents and dignitaries (including President Trump in February) and if you want to feel that fancy, book a flight on Ultimate Air Shuttle, a public charter flight that seems like a private jet. The shuttle service runs between Cincy and New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta and Charlotte, N.C. It’s basically balling on a budget with VIP amenities, no baggage fees, no long security lines and free food, drinks and alcohol, including beers from Rhinegeist and Braxton. Ultimate Air Shuttle, Lunken Airport, 262 Wilmer Ave., East End, ultimateairshuttle.com.
