Carew Tower is the tallest building in Cincinnati, and it’s the best way to get a look at what the city has to offer. The observation deck is on the 49th floor, and it’s not that easy to get there. Take a ride on a standard elevator to the 45th floor, then a rickety one up to the 48th. After that, you have to hoof it up a flight of stairs, but the view is absolutely worth it. On a clear day, you can see for miles. Once you’re done taking in the view, visit the shopping mall that occupies the building, along with offices and hotel space.
