Seth Walsh and Erin Hinson have been asking people, “What’s your favorite thing to do in Cincinnati?” Whatever the answer is, they do. 

Looking for a new adventure in Cincinnati? The Queen City is filled with incredible things to do, and it’s our goal to help you discover new places. Search the hashtag #UnlockCincinnati on social media to discover Cincinnati’s hidden gems, or use it yourself to lead others to the treasures you find. Cincinnati is filled with them!

To get you started, the #UnlockCincinnati team has created a Bingo card of places recommended by others; try them by yourself, with friends or with family. Some of these paths are well worn (read about our experiences at locations by clicking on each bingo square), while others remain to be discovered. Go to them, see something new, and take a picture and hashtag it for others to find on social media.

Because we want to help people continue to explore Cincinnati and unlock their own adventures, the first 15 people to complete Bingo will win an #UnlockCincinnati T-shirt. All you have to do is pick your Bingo route for victory, take a picture at the location (yes, selfies count, as long as we can see the location) and post it on your social media accounts using the hashtag #UnlockCincinnati. Then, email so we can verify your Bingo card and send you a shirt. Standard Bingo rules apply: You must get five in a row, horizontally, diagonally or vertically.

Welcome to the team. Now let’s #UnlockCincinnati!

We invite you to follow this journey in real time online at, on Twitter (@UnlockThe513, @SethTWalsh and @erinhinson2), Instagram (@sethtwalsh and @erinhinson2) and Facebook, or by following #UnlockCincinnati. Or you can email us at
