Presidents Park in Edgewood and Freedom Park in Fort Wright are favorites among locals and offer picnic areas, sand volleyball, playgrounds, baseball and soccer fields, basketball courts, football field, 9/11 memorial, and more.
Many of the area’s award-winning wineries are also located in this area, so be sure to check out the Northern Kentucky Backroads Wine Trail. You’ll enjoy the country roads, scenic drives along the Ohio River, and stamping your passport along the way.
Crestview Hills is home to Crestview Hills Town Center, a shopping center featuring more than 65 popular retail stores and restaurants such as Dillard’s, J. Crew Mercantile, LOFT, Sephora, DSW Shoes, and more. Check their calendar for events including the Town Center’s Summer Concert Series.
Thomas More is home to more than students--it’s also the location of a tiny chapel called Monte Casino that is the smallest church in the world. It was built in 1878 by Benedictine monks and moved to the college campus in 1965.
