The bounteous flora of Cincinnati
Authored by Sherman Cahal on June 16, 2009 at American Byways

Cincinnati and Hamilton County boast many diverse parks and natural features that not many other locales in the United States can claim. From the second oldest zoo in the United States to grand overlooks of the Ohio River and deep forested hillsides and ravines, the diversity that is exemplified is quite elaborate. Click on the respective links in the headers for even more photographs and information and be sure to click through onto the American Byways blog for more photographs and text!

The first update hails from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden located in Avondale neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the second oldest zoo in the United States and features over 20 exhibits covering birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates and hosts over 780 different species of wildlife. The zoo also hosts numerous musical events at the pavilion and is host to thousands of tulips during the annual Tunes and Blooms festival.
