It's worth getting to the top and take a peek at the city from the roof. Only a few bucks and you'll get a 360 degrees view above the river, the stadiums, the city and its surroundings. Never experienced a line there, unlike similar experiences...More

The price of entry is more expensive then what it should be, but the views make up for it! You can see for miles and Cincinnati has one of the best skyline views ever! Glad we did this!

Nice little activity that doesn't take long and gives you a great view. Also a little scary to ride up the little second elevator. The building is beautiful and looks like something from Great Gatsby!

Though not so high when compared to other famous skyscrapers in other cities the Carew Tower is still worth visiting and at 4 dollars a great deal for the best views of the city! You'll have to ask when you enter the building because there...More
