Culture in Cincinnati

Cincinnati is a great place to immerse yourself in history, art and culture, and the best way to do it is with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coaches or school bus hired from Bus Rentals Cincinnati. 
First on the list is the Cincinnati Art Museum. Holding a collection of over 60,000 artifacts spanning 6,000 years, the Cincinnati Art Museum is ranked alongside the Museum of Modern Art in New York as one of the best museums in the United States. Open six days a week, the Museum aims to make Cincinnati’s most treasured cultural asset available to everyone.
If you have ever harbored a childhood dream to be a firefighter, make it a point to visit the Cincinnati Fire Museum. The museum highlights the history and technology of firefighting, as well as promoting fire safety. Based in a former Fire House, the museum holds some unique artifacts that date back to the beginning of firefighting in Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is the second oldest zoo in America. Open daily, the zoo is considered to be one of the most important animal conservation centers worldwide due to its success in breeding wild animals in captivity. New exhibits such as Cat Canyon, Night Hunters and the Spaulding Children’s Zoo provide a fun filled and educational experience about the importance of animal conservation.
Stop by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for an eye opening view into the history of slavery. Billing itself as a museum of conscience, the museum challenges visitors to study the meaning of freedom in their own lives as they walk through the exhibits. The location of the center in Cincinnati is in homage of the the role the city played in the Underground Railroad, when thousands of escaped slaves crossed the Ohio River seeking freedom.
A visit to the Taft Museum of Art is called for if you enjoy both modern and classical art in a more intimate setting. Beginning with a collection bequeathed by the Taft family to the people of Cincinnati in 1927, the Taft Museum today is rated one of the finest small art museums in America. The collection includes European and American Masters, Chinese porcelain and and European decorative arts. 
The small sampling of the cultural delights that Cincinnati is readily accessible to you with the various size and types of buses available for hire from Bus Rentals Cincinnati allowing you and your group to travel in safety and style while visiting the various Art Centers, historical buildings and museums in Cincinnati.

Thrifting In Cincinnati

If you’re interested in updating your wardrobe and furnishings with chic vintage pieces, Cincinnati doesn’t disappoint in providing you with many places to go on thrifting expeditions. If you’re new to thrifting, it’s best to know a few fundamental things first.
Make a list
Have you ever gone into a store and left with many things you shouldn’t have bought at all? Its best to keep a list with you to stay focused on what you really want to add to your collection. The wide selection available at thrift stores can overwhelm you, and could turn you into a hoarder. You’ll know that you’ve moved to dangerous territory if you start thinking of getting an extra rental car to help you cart all your shopping away.
Go Often
If you’re serious about thrifting, going often will ensure that you won’t always have to wade through mountains of things. You’ll know exactly which pile to avoid, and where the new stuff is, which saves a lot of time.
Dig Dig Dig
Don’t be daunted by big piles of things. Sometimes you’ll have to dig through many layers to find true gems, which is the whole point of thrifting in the first place.
Love What You Buy
It’s simple really. To love what you buy, you have to buy the things you really love. It’s relatively simple to find a whole host of items that you like, but to prevent yourself from becoming a hoarder its best to only buy the things that you are truly passionate about.
See Through The Paint
Some items might not look beautiful at first glance, but try imagining them with a coat of paint, or just a new pair of buttons. A little bit of extra work can turn something ordinary into your favorite buy of the year.
If you’re wondering where to go for your very first trip, hop, skip, drive or take a bus down to Ludlow Avenue to check out the Mustard Seed Boutique. A charming shop with crystal chandeliers, it houses a wide array of clothing brands, from Marc Jacobs to Oscar De La Renta at reasonable prices. If you’re based near Northside, Casablanca Vintage on Spring Grove Avenue will truly satisfy the vintage hunter in you with a large selection of furs, silk gowns and all the trappings of old Hollywood glamor. Another place for great finds is NVision at Hamilton Avenue, which offers redesigned and recycled clothing, art and furniture. They even make local deliveries for a small fee. So get on the thrifting bus as soon as you can before everyone else buys up all he good stuff.
