Ho Ho Ho! Join us on the Cincinnati Streetcar “Christmas” Food Tour – Sunday Edition
Whether you are looking for a family outing, a couples get-together or a reason to call your favorite friend, this is an excellent opportunity to come downtown, ride the streetcar and enjoy the festive lights and delicious bites of Cincinnati.
We have added a new holiday tour that is guaranteed to fill you with good cheer, plenty of seasonal food and “memory making” fun! Isn’t it nice that we do all the work so you can just sit back and enjoy?
From Thanksgiving to Christmas, it’s Downtown Dazzle time in Cincinnati and what better way to see and taste your way through the city than on a Riverside Food Tour!
Pull out the Christmas sweaters and Santa hats and make plans now! This special holiday tour is only available on Sunday Dec 5. More Sunday afternoon tours will be added soon.
On Sundays, we gather at 1:45pm at the corner of Race and 14th Street right inside Washington Park. We’ll begin with a bag of holiday popcorn to whet your appetite.
We stroll through beautiful Washington Park to take in the holiday festivities and board the streetcar to historic Findlay Market.
At the Market, we will load up on 3 more treats. We’ll enjoy a delicious piece of Christmas Cheddar Cheese, and a chunk of Christmas Fudge, a gingerbread waffle (or plain for the Scrooges)
After our stroll through the Market, we ride the streetcar to the backstage entertainment area. We’ll stop in for the best ‘Bru’ signature Burger and onion rings that you have ever tasted. Or an alternate stop may include a Scottish Pub for a holiday dish of roasted pork loin, homemade mashed potatoes and cranberry chutney (depending on availability).
Afterwards, we stroll to Graeter’s on Fountain Square in the heart of downtown Cincinnati for a steaming cup of their rich hot chocolate, followed by a trip inside the beautiful Carew Tower for a quick photo in front of the Christmas tree.
For our final stop, we climb aboard the Cincinnati Streetcar to OTR for a unique twist on a flatbread pizza and a Christmas cocktail (or mocktail for the kiddos).
As the tour comes to an end, we will return to our staring point in Washington Park. Or if you wish to return to Fountain Square where the fun continues, we walk right by the Streetcar platform heading to Fountain Square as we return to Washington Park.
Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time for the Fountain Square ice skating rink and bumper cars at My Fountain Square. A reservation for anytime after 5:30pm would be safe.
