Looking for something to do around the Cincinnati area? Today’s Transitions found a few options for you to consider this April.
Every spring, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden transforms into a magnificent explosion of color with Zoo Blooms! As one of only two accredited botanical gardens in Ohio, the Cincinnati Zoo offers one of the largest tulip displays in the Midwest. Dubbed “Tulip Mania,” Zoo Blooms also features more than one million daffodils, hyacinths, flowering trees, shrubs, and other spring bulbs exploding with color. This event is included with Zoo Admission.
Baseball returns to Great American Ball Park this spring with the Cincinnati Reds home opener versus the Pirates on March 30.
