Trains, Trestles and Traditions Now at Krohn Conservatory

by The Cincinnati Team

It's a must go!  This year's Krohn Conservatory Holiday show, The Return of Trains, Trestles and Traditions is one of the best ever!  Plan to take you family before it closes on January 6.

The show will appeal to all ages, but especially to train lovers and gardeners.  It's absolutely a treat! Trains wander over bridges and through tunnels and covered bridges, including the favorite, Tommy the Train. All are LGB trains that use "G"scale, a larger size that children can see more easily amongst the poinsettias, amaryllis', cyclamens and evergreens. The size is also perfect with flowers for garden railroading.

Applied Imagination brought all their talents to bear in designing the layout and building the miniature replicas of outstanding Cincinnati landmarks.  Even more interesting is that they are built out of natural materials.  The Roebling Suspension Bridge is made of bark...who would have thought that it looks like stone when placed in this display? Try to identify the historical buildings that have been recreated by Applied Imagination for the event.  







































































Buildings are, in order, Ault Park Pavilion, Union Terminal, Taft Museum, Eden Park Gazebo, Eden Park Water Tower, Krohn Conservatory.  Tommy the Train is going by the Batavia Train Station.

Thank you to the Cincinnati Parks, Krohn Conservatory and all the sponsors giving this gift to Cincinnati citizens for the holidays.

Cincinnati Ranked #4 in Best Cities for Working Moms
Working womenForbes has done a recent study to find good places for mothers with careers.  The study looked at women's earnings, safety, school districts, average commute, child-care costs and other factors when determining the cities they felt were best for working moms.
Amazingly, three Ohio cities were in the top seven listed. Columbus came in first with a women's average earning at $32,086.  Cincinnati was listed as fourth with average earnings of $30,769, and Cleveland was number seven with earnings of $29,601.
One of the surprising results that we did not know is there are 290.4 physicians per 100,000 residents.  It pays to have a medical school in the area!


Visit Shillito's Santa's Workshop

by The Cincinnati Team


Christmas ElfNewport on the Levee is the site of the Elves from Shillito's Santa's Workshop.  100 + elves have been refurbished and set up again in the displays that once graced the corner windows of the Shillito's Department Store.  Throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's thousands of children and parents visited the display.
The attraction was purchased by Bill Spinneweber in 2005 and parts of it were displayed in Mariemont for several years.  It was obvious that extensive renovation was needed to keep the exhibit in good condition.  This summer a campaign was put in place to fund the restoration and find a more permanent home.
So, plan to visit all 11 scenes that take you through the life of Santa's helpers at the North Pole. at Newport on the Levee this year.
