A Tour, A Taste, and a Toast to the World

After months of planning, the 2012 World Choir Games are about to begin in Cincinnati. From July 4-July 14, 2012, Cincinnati will welcome 360 choirs from 48 countries to compete and perform in 23 musical categories. Yes, this is the Olympics of choral singing and will bring thousands of visitors to the region. As Cincinnati does so well, we are rolling out the red carpet for our guests. And what better way for visitors to get acquainted with Cincinnati than through one of the numerous tours taking place throughout the area?
American Legacy Tours will offer their popular Queen City Underground tour as well as a multitude of other walking tours. The folks at Queen City History will lead "Saloon, Cellars, & Sin" tours from Cincinnati's oldest bar Arnold's. There will also be Pedal Wagon tours and Segway tours.
We think we've got a winning tour at Findlay Market, too. Not only are we offering a walking tour at this historic landmark, but we also include tasting with an optional toast to the world at the conclusion. A $15 ticket for our 90-minute Taste the World at Findlay Market tour includes stops at the stands or shops of six specialty merchants. For an additional $5, we'll add on a wine tasting at Market Wines or two ice cold beers from the OTR Biergarten.
Limited transportation or worried about parking? We've got that covered, too. We've arranged a 14-person "Singing Van" from United Shuttle to transport visitors from Washington Park to Findlay Market for our Taste the World tours. The van will also stop at Pendleton Art Center, home of the world's largest collection of artists under one roof, where visitors can browse the studios and meet the artists. Hop on board in front of Music Hall and enjoy the ride around Over-the-Rhine to see history and progress together in the largest, most intact urban historic district in the United States.
Now that's something to sing about!
