Adventure Mom's favorite photos from Livin' in the Cin

My third mission from Cincinnati USA was to "Photograph one or more things, places, people, etc. that represent the challenge word given and show off reasons you are excited to live in Cincinnati USA."

I was given the Challenge Words water, happy, colorful, energy and historyIt was really hard for me to decide on just one picture that could represent each word so I'm sharing with you a few of my favorite instagram pics.

Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption is a gorgeous display of color with stained glass windows at every angle. I've driven by it many times, but it's worth taking the time to really appreciate the inside.

I love that you can find people at Washington Park at all hours. The view of Music Hall is always gorgeous in any light. I always feel more alive every time I go downtown.
 
History

Cincinnati has so much history to uncover. We recently went on the Underground Tour by American Legacy Tours and learned so much about our city. The image above was from a crypt we visited on our tour.

Beer has also been a huge part of Cincinnat's history, and this former lager tunnel has so many interesting stories.
