Things to do in Cincinnati Summer 2021

By Patience Waller

Nobody wants to sit in the house, bored all summer. Summer 2021 is here, and it’s time to get out and active! Here in Cincinnati there is so much more to do than what meets the eye. There are amusement parks, festivals, escape rooms and much more.

Coney Island is an amusement park that you can visit and have fun whether you’re by yourself or with friends and family! Coney Island’s premiere attraction, Luna Park, features 28 rides, 13 carnival-style games, an arcade for everyone; and let’s not forget the thrill rides that everyone can enjoy. 

This park calls attention to the famous Sunlite Pool, which was built in 1925 and is billed as the world’s largest recirculating pool. There are water slides and other wet attractions as well.
