Places to visit
Get familiar with everything the CINCY Region has to offer
Newport is a city steeped in history. Once a “sin city” of sorts, brimming with mobsters and gambling halls, today Newport is a family-friendly getaway with something for every visitor.
Located less than 20 minutes southeast of downtown Cincinnati and just a stone’s throw from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), the Kentucky town of Florence isn’t shy about welcoming visitors. In fact, its most popular landmark is a water tower on the side of the highway into town that’s painted with the friendly phrase, “Florence, Y’all.”
Located just west of Newport in Northern Kentucky, this town of 40,000 is big on charm. With quaint 19th-century architecture, a historic district heavily influenced by German and Irish immigrants, and a storied distillery tradition, every trip to Covington is a crash course in the region’s rich history.
