The summer has just officially ended, but here in the Cincinnati area the forecast still has a little bit of summer in store for us this weekend. If you find yourself looking for a way to get out and enjoy that beautiful weather may I suggest a ride down the Ohio River on a Ride the Ducks tour. It's a pretty unique, and fun way to enjoy our beautiful riverfront.
Ride the Ducks actually began in Branson, Missouri in 1977. From there, they branched into an agreement with the Boston Duck Tour to provide vehicles. In 2008 the Ducks landed in Newport.
Not only is there a cool factor because of the duck vehicle, and the chance to float down the Ohio River, but it's actually a very informative little tour of the business district of Cincinnati. You'll drive through downtown, where you will hear neat trivia about the places you drive past, but you're also encouraged to blow your Duck Horn!
The weather may not be this nice again for some time. Treat yourself and head down to Newport on the Levee and hop on a Duck Tour this weekend. It's a really interesting way to see the city!
