Trip Location Information for AB Site Leaders: Cincinnati, OH

This LibGuide is organized by trip location for use by current AB Site Leaders. Within each location tab, SL's will find ideas for activities to do and places to go with their trip group during free time.

Free Time Ideas

1) John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge/Smale Riverfront Park: This would be a great outside activity if the weather is permitting. Your group could walk across the bridge and spend time at the park getting to know each other a bit better, or you could hold your reflection in the park if your free time falls on a day you are at an organization. 

2) National Underground Railroad Freedom Center: Participants would likely have to pay for their entrance to the museum, so SL's would want to have a conversation in a meeting prior to the week of the trip about whether or not participants would be willing to do so. 

3) Contemporary Arts Center: The CAC is free to all guests. Their hours are different throughout the week, so make sure to check the times they are open each day for planning purposes. 

Trip Focused Ideas: Food Cincy

Findlay Market: situated in the West End of Cincinnati, Findlay Market is right in the middle of a food desert. Although this is true, the market also provides for a variety of communities in numerous ways. Your trip group could either purchase lunch in Findlay Market or pack a lunch and sit down at some of the tables within it. Either way, be sure to observe the area and discuss what you see, paying close attention to the presence (or absence) of grocery stores/places to purchase food in the area. 

Trip Focused Ideas: Urban Schools

DePaul Cristo Rey: DePaul Cristo Rey High School opened in June 2011 as part of the national Cristo Rey Network to serve those families who want a private, college preparatory education for their children but can’t afford it without significant financial assistance. Participants will be able to assist with tutoring as well as gain immersion experience by speaking with students and faculty of DePaul Cristo Rey. Site Leaders will engage participants by connecting the topic of Urban Education to the mission of DePaul Cristo Rey, which focuses on providing high quality, private education to those who would be unable to afford it.
