You love a scenic canoe ride while your pup loves to belly flop off the thwart, and Cincinnati is the ideal travel destination for you both. The Ohio River snakes through Cincinnati, connecting the downtown to several riverfront parks and nature preserves by way of the Ohio River Trail. A draw for two- and four-legged hikers, the trail is just one way to explore the natural beauty of the landscape along the river. Among the parks in the area, the Mount Airy Forest, the East Fork State Park, and the Shawnee Lookout all provide trails and overviews of the verdant beauty of Southwestern Ohio. Visitors to the region can even follow the Ohio River over the border and into Kentucky to widen their options. Whether you prefer a stay at a traditional farmhouse or a restored log cabin, we have got you covered. Check out our list of pet-friendly accommodations near Cincinnati and follow the river to your chosen abode.
