Cincinnati is one of those cities where the saying "Don't like the weather? Wait five minutes" has never been truer. Luckily, there are plenty of recreation options for any season and weather condition. The many city and state parks are perfect in summer and fall for boating, fishing, hiking, climbing, or riding. Participants and supporters show up without fail for running races, year round and in all weathers. Climate-control addicts still have options - yoga studios are popping up all over town, and riverboat cruises offer food, gambling, or sightseeing on deck and inside. Cincinnati's location as an active city surrounded by rivers, forests, and gorges provides all variety of fun.
