In Cincinnati, sports are as much a part of the history as they are of today's culture. America's first team of baseball has its stadium here alongside others, a loyal anchor of the changing riverfront. Many landmark buildings still stand, as much worth visiting for their distinctive architecture, as for the history that resides within. Politics and presidents are still on show and beyond museums, the open air fun of markets and public spaces carry a sense of history into today's life.
