What do you get a man who has everything? A tour of the city he adores.....
Thanks to the fine folks at American Legacy Tours for such a fun and very different Father's Day gift!
Cincinnati is the lucky host of the 2012 World Choir Games which we are really excited to be a part of and know it will boost the economy here in The Queen City. There is a huge counter on the Square that serves as the countdown tracker.

The tour started on Fountain Square where we were given a history lesson of the fountain, when and how it was purchased...a bit scandalous if you ask me.
A view of Carew Tower from The Square where we will end our tour.
A poem for the city...
The P&G Towers also known as "Dolly Parton Towers" A marketing mecca and the birthplace of IVORY soap aka "the soap that floats."
One of Scott's favorite parts of the tour was getting a chance to go into the Cincinnati Masonic Center. What a beautiful building and as we were informed, no one can put a price on it. Everything was built by the Masons by hand and boy the details of this place are spectacular. What a historical site. Everytime we would pass it Scott would always be in awe, saying, "I want to go in there one day."

Fun Fact: The Great American Tower is the tallest building in Cincy at 660 feet. What makes it the tallest is the large crown that was placed on top as a ode to Princess Diana just fitting for The Queen City.

Scott truly enjoyed himself. We had an amazing tour and can't wait to try another one.
I heard the Underground Tour is amazing.
We LOVE Cincinnati!
