How To Enjoy Spring in Florence

We are so lucky to live in beautiful Florence with such close access to Cincinnati! Everyone here at Grand at Florence wants to make sure that you take advantage of the beautiful spring weather this year. We have put together a list of the activities and events that you don’t want to miss.

Riverboat Ride

Spring is the perfect season to enjoy a ride on a riverboat, a staple of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. On this exciting and scenic ride you will learn about the interesting history of the river, enjoy a delicious meal, and enjoy the company of close family and friends. There are many different themed rides to choose from as well, so choose the ride that looks most enticing to you and make the best of this great spring activity!

Visit the Newport Aquarium

A visit to the Newport Aquarium is a great activity for people of all ages. The aquarium features over 70 exhibits and 14 galleries, meaning that you will find yourself entertained for hours! Some of the popular exhibits include the Rainforest, Gator Alley, Shark Central, and the Kroger Penguin Palooza. You also won’t want to miss Turtle Canyon, an exhibit where you can touch the turtles! Pick a rainy April too to head to the aquarium and take it all in!

Do A Pedal Wagon in Cincinnati

The pedal wagon is one of the biggest trends right now! If you are of age, schedule to participate in a pedal wagon with friends! If you have kids, there are pedal wagon trips for families as well! Pedal and (safely) drink your way through downtown Cincinnati, stopping at other bars and restaurants along the way. This is the perfect activity for a warm, sunny day that you will want to do over and over again! You can bring your own drinks onto the wagon (as long as they are not in glass bottles) and even get a little workout in as you peddle around the city!

Spend Time at Stringtown Park

Florence boasts many wonderful parks, including Stringtown Park. At Stringtown, you will find a great playground, an asphalt-coated basketball court, outdoor fitness stations, a paved trail, a sand volleyball court, and picnic tables! Pack up a delicious picnic and head to Stringtown Park on a sunny day!

Florence is a wonderful place to live and we hope that you enjoy spring and spend time outside! Enjoy an outdoor meal, take your dog for a long walk, or participate in an organized activity. Before you know it, it will be summer in Florence!
