According to livability.com, Cincinnati is ranked No. 10 in the list of 2013's "Top 10 Spring Break Destinations for Families: Quick Getaways."
Livability chose their top 10 destinations based on the cities that make the most of the short amount of time spring break offers. They used their city database along with Trip Advisor, Expedia and Yelp reviews to find places that have "temperate climates along with lots of attractions, parks, natural areas, affordable hotels and kid-friendly restaurants."
But as a friend just commented: "Do they know we don't have a beach?" Apparently. Because things they're really excited we do have include one of the "top-ranked and oldest zoos" in the country along with the Cincinnati Art Museum, the 21c Museum Hotel and the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. And an IKEA, "which has a free supervised play area for kids." They really love the Newport Aquarium and our parks (Eden Park and Ault Park) as well.
