Spring has finally sprung in Cincinnati! Trees are budding and coming to life, skies are turning blue and spring flowers are blooming to life. There might still be a chill in the air, but we feel confident that spring is fully on the way!

Cincinnati Zoo Tunes & Blooms is the perfect date opportunity when you’re looking for something fun and romantic to do on a spring evening. And the best part — it’s FREE! You pay for parking ($10), but entry to the zoo after 5 p.m. is free.
