Art Deco—the crown of the Queen City. No other city in America has the buildings that we do. Born in France in 1925, Art Deco was a design to captivate the modern era. New materials, new ideas—and Cincinnati was right in the middle. Union Terminal, Carew Tower, Dixie Terminal, Cincinnati Bell, the Netherland Plaza, even the Shillito/Lazarus buildings have wonderful examples of Art Deco architecture. Take a tour with our guide from the Cincinnati Heritage Programs and learn about this interesting part of our history. See things you’ve never seen before. Lunch will be a real treat—an incredible buffet at the Palm Court in the Netherland Hilton!

Both his teacher and a store Santa Claus tell him “You’ll shoot your eye out!” Frequently at odds with his cranky dad but comforted by his doting mother, Ralphie struggles to make it to Christmas Day with his glasses and his hopes intact.
