Landed up in Cincinnati's Riverfront and had a great time! There's plenty of places to eat and shop. The riverfront is super cool and near to the stadium.

Yes, there are ferry type boats that will take you on a tour. I believe they are about $7. very enjoyable and informative. Water taxis too. They have carriage rides in town and a trolley car.
