As we turn the corner of summer and head into autumn, we thought this month’s Memorable City should be a nice “drive” destination from St. Louis. With that in mind, this month takes us to “the Queen City", commonly known as Cincinnati.
Found amid rolling hills along the Ohio River, Cincinnati reaches from the southwestern corner of Ohio into Northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana. The city is located about midway on the 1,000-mile long Ohio River. A fun fact about Cincinnati is that according to legend, Cincinnati was, like Rome, built on seven hills. However, nobody seems to know what the original seven hills were. Ask 10 different citizens of the Queen City and you’ll get 10 different answers.
There are many things to do and see while visiting. The zoo, while modest to some comparisons, is a nice afternoon activity. Over the Rhine, or “OTR” as it is referred to in Cincinnati, is a must see as it shows what older neighborhoods look like after being transformed (picture the Loop times three). The downtown Banks Entertainment District is a model of any city looking to reinvigorate a downtown area into a vibrant nightlife, thriving with tourists and locals alike.
For more information of things to see and taste while visiting Cincinnati, be it the cinnamon laced chili the city is famous for (hello Skyline Chili) or Fountain Square, please access the following link...
I have been working with TravelPlex for many years and I must say it has been a refreshing experience. Our travel needs often require instantaneous service, and they are always there for us. TravelPlex offers us great personal service, great pricing and a 24/7 hotline. To me, THAT equals a hat trick!

We’ve been with TravelPlex for over 20 years. The lone exception is when we left them for (a mega travel agency). It took us about a year before we realized that the personal service and attention that the TravelPlex staff just wasn’t there with (the mega agency). Neither was the savings (the mega agency) promised. We were so low on the totem pole that we were lucky if we ever had anyone contact us. But at TravelPlex, the staff always goes above and beyond to make sure we get the best prices and that our travelers are always taken care of. TravelPlex makes all our travelers feel like VIP’s, and that’s important – and rare!
Carrie Willard is the reason I keep coming back to Travelplex. She is "WONDERFUL". She is always so helpful and goes the extra step to make sure everything is satisfactory and done the way the customer wants it. She always has a smile on her face, which is even apparent over the phone. I have entrusted our vacations with Carrie now for 3yrs and could never imagine using anyone else to help us plan our trips. I have referred at least 5 of my friends to her, and they all have had nothing but glowing remarks about Carrie. She is an asset to your company and exemplifies the true meaning of "CUSTOMER SERVICE".
With the announcement by President Trump on March 11th banning travel to/from Europe starting March 13th (Friday) starting at 11:59pm, TravelPlex has already been reaching out to our clients who are affected by this announcement.

I have been in the travel industry in various jobs for 48 years. I sold my agency to TravelPlex several years ago and stayed on to supervise operations.I enjoy working with the agents and sharing information that helps them grow.
